I thought this was eye opening, check out this comparison,
|Spec ||Asus Transformer Prime (with dock) ||Asus UX 21|
|Size ||263*180.8*8.3mm ||1.12 times longer X 1.10 times wider, and 0.917 thinner|
|Weight ||2.47lbs ||2.43 lbs or 98% the weight|
|Resolution ||1280X800 ||1366X768|
|OS ||Android ||Windows 7|
|Storage ||64G ||128G|
Very very interesting.
Other points to consider,
- The tablet is a tablet. You can put it on a treadmill while you run, you can get 15-16 hours of battery life with the dock, or read it like a book. The laptop can’t do all that.
- The laptop on the other hand, is a no compromises full laptop. It runs windows 7, office, there is app-hunting – it is a full fledged computer.
But, I am amazed to realize how close a full fledged windows machine can be to a tablet in size and weight. Perhaps not battery life yet, but still decent battery life.
Now how about – give us a proper windows machine like the Asus UX21 with a touch screen with no keyboard.
I’d totally hit it.
