Ofcource it is and I'm not claiming otherwise. What I'm sayig is that once you get used to that retina display you tend to notice when you look at lower pixel density screen. Not that I know as I'm not a mac guy but my friends who are seem to be very sensitive towards pixel density for some reason. I must say that I can kind of imagine after using an 7'' 1280x800 screen with ~220 ppi I noticed the difference when looking at ~100 ppi DELL IPS next to it. At the end of a day ~100 ppi is perfectly adequate as well, just not quite as smooth now that I look at it - but after not using the tablet for a day or two its quite fine again.

Yes you're right about that. I switched from an iPad 3 to the mini and it's noticeably more pixelated, particularly when reading too. Hopefully the mini 2 will have a Retina display. But we may be two generations away from that. The power consumption from the Retina display right now is simply too much for it to handle.

I'm another one of those people who will opt to pass on the Nexus 10 because of the lack of a microSD slot. One of the things I use my tablet for is catching up on recorded TV shows when I'm stuck waiting somewhere or when I don't feel like sitting at my computer when someone is already watching the TV in the living room. My MythTV box is configured to automatically transcode every recording to h.264/aac high profile and each mp4 recording takes around 400MB/hr for SD or around 1.1GB/hr for HD (I transcode to 720p, deinterlace, and configure the encoder to output at a fairly high-quality). It's easy to eat up a lot of space with HD recordings (which is the majority of what I record).

I bought the TF700T before I heard about the Nexus 10. I have a few 32GB microSD cards, and I have a 32GB UHS-1 SD card that I normally use for my camera, but often use with my TF700T's keyboard dock (which has a full-size SD card slot). I can even use an external USB hard drive with the keyboard dock's USB port, which is an extremely handy bonus feature for a tablet. The way I understand it, the Nexus 10 is going to be in the $500 range like the TF700T. I just can't see paying that much money for that Exynos processor and 1600p display alone. It is still a good enough tablet for people who can get back to their computer before they can watch 20 or so hours of TV.

I have a nexus 7 and I have been getting the itch to purchase a 10" tablet. I wanted the nexus 10 bit like the previous poster, and I can't see myself spending that much on a tablet and it's missing a SD slot. The tf700 is looking better to see every day.

The Nexus 10 has a much better display, processor and GPU than the tf700.

Actually I meant the tf700t. Not sure if that makes a huge difference. I don't like that the nexus 10 does not have an sd slot. That is the main turn off for me with the nexus 10.

No SD card makes it harder to root/use custom ROM - no ? Now I'm relatively noob Android devices wise and all two devices which I have owned like a bit over the week by now came factory rooted and with SD card slots. One of them can even boot from external SD card without having to flash the gadget itself thanx to special bootloader from factory so I really dont know.

You don't need an sd card to flash a custom rom or root the device.
While many people flash a rom by placing it on the sd card and using clockwokmod, you can also flash it by using a PC with either adb or Odin.

It has what they call USB OTG (on-the-go) which you can get an adapter cable (very cheap) and plug in flash drive, mem card reader, usb hub/keyboard mouse etc. But as stated, can backup/install roms that are installed on the device internal mem.

The Nexus 10 does have an amazing CPU, GPU, and screen. Those are all major features to consider when purchasing a tablet (or, hell, any computing device of any sort!). The TF700T is beaten by the Nexus 10 on all three of those counts, however, do you do any of your video transcodes on the tablet? Do you process huge datasets or run your database server on your tablet? Do you really care how fast your tablet is past its ability to load webpages fast and play the best 3D games available from Google Play?

I'm sure that Android app devs will eventually come out with games that can only be played if you have the Nexus 10 or a device with equivalent specs, but right now people aren't going to alienate the majority of their customers to only sell games to Nexus 10 owners. The TF700T is actually outclassed in the GPU department by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, too. My argument is that you can play any game you find in the market and enjoy the performance of the TF700T. You can watch 1080p movies in actual 1080p because the tablet has a 1920x1200 screen (Super IPS+, which is amazingly bright and visible out in sunlight). Anything faster or with higher resolution just isn't needed at this point in order to get all the fun and use that is currently available out of a tablet.

I'm not trying to suggest that the Nexus 10 isn't a fantastic tablet. A lot of its specs are mindblowing (I haven't seen even a desktop monitor less than 27" that has a resolution of 2560x1600). I just don't feel like I should have to reverse-engineer a USB OTG port to get features that should just be standard on a tablet that costs $400 (yeah, not all 10" tablets from the major companies have a microSD card slot, but they should!).

I'd be willing to consider selling off my TF700T to raise the funds to buy a Nexus 10 if it had some sort of keyboard situation available (something like maybe a bluetooth keyboard built into a shell or a case that can hold both the tablet and a bluetooth keyboard) and if it had some ability to offer some kind of external storage (microSD slot, etc). As it stands, I still feel like I have the absolute best product on the market for my needs.
