Also the fact that many apps are not yet optimized for the resolution of the Nexus 10.
I'm still not sure what to do though. I thought of just getting the TF700T for now and allow the Nexus 10 time to mature. Its a very powerful piece of hardware and will open up the gate for more tablets just like it to become available. I will take another look that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 also since maybe that might be better then the Transformer Infinity.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 does have a better GPU according to a review I saw. I didn't at all pay attention to what they said about the quad-core Exynos processor at 1.4GHz. I believe that processor is one of the A15 chips, rather than the A9-based Tegra 3 T33. I'm not exactly sure what that means as far as performance is concerned... the Tegra 3 in the Infinity is clocked really high (it's 1.7GHz if the processor is using a single core or 1.6GHz for 2-4 cores). The Note 10.1 also gets an additional boost in 3D gaming fps rate over the Infinity simply because it has a 1280x800 display, so it doesn't have to draw as many pixels as the Infinity.
I would have definitely chosen the Note 10.1 if I preferred to take notes by hand rather than typing or if I was interested in using it for artistic endeavors. I'm more of a "hacking away at an ssh terminal" kinda guy than a "digital painter". I do wish that I could have gotten Adobe Photoshop Touch with my tablet and a neat digitizer pen for those random times when graphic design urges hit me, but those urges are rare compared to how often I'm logged in to one of my home computers or servers.
It's too bad these companies haven't gotten together and mashed all their best features into one uber-tablet. I'd spend all that extra money to buy it.
