Return Asus Transformer to buy Asus Transformer Prime?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

Do you think I should return the Asus Transformer and wait for the second generation (Asus Transformer Prime) to come out?

It's not going official til Nov 9th (I believe) and God only knows when this will actually get released.

If you CAN wait for a month or two, you SHOULD.

Yes. If you don't need it right now, why not? The Prime is going to be way better.

I would return it if you are within the return period and there is no restocking fee (otherwise sell it yourself). I've been looking for a tablet, but have officially put it on hold until after the Prime is released and reviewed.

I don't think it'll use Ice Cream Sandwich, that's the new mobile OS, won't they keep it on Honeycomb? Or another in the 3.0 series?
