5 of the best quad-core gadgets
Asus Transformer Pad 300 series
We loved the original Transformer so much we awarded it 2011's Gadget of the Year. The Transformer Prime impressed us just as much, earning a well-deserved five red stars in our review. Now Asus has welcomed a new member into the fold – the rebranded and more budget-friendly Transformer Pad 300.
With a Tegra 3 quad-core engine, Android 4.0, dual snappers (8MP and 1.2MP) and an optional keyboard dock, the Transformer Pad 300 series is just as covetable as its Transformer Prime sibling. The only major difference, as far as we can tell, is the 300 series totes a 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, as opposed to the Super IPS+ display that's served up with the Prime and new Transformer Pad Infinity 700. Plus it'll be much kinder to your pockets.
