This summer I picked up and Asus Transformer TF101 with the docking station and I have to say that this is a very nice tablet for the money. I bought it primarily for taking notes, reading pdf's, browsing and portability and it surpassed all my expectations and then some. This tablets runs the latest version of Android and has incredible battery life (10 hours on tablet and 8 more hours with the docking station, 18 hours total). I find it almost impossible to kill the battery on this beast. If you're looking for an affordable tablet took no further and check out the transformer series from Asus.
