The problem I have with the Nexus 10 is that is has a dual-core processor powering that super-high resolution screen. (Lag is the enemy) I will definitely check out the Infinity! What is your personal tablet of choice?

Jelly bean runs super smooth :) Honestly I'm not seeing lag on the Nexus 10, it is much better than the Nexus 7 was. And the 10 is certainly faster than my 201 was. Right now I have the 10, an iPad3, and a Kindle Fire HD 8.9". I want to like the Fire but the locked down OS is bothersome, I am not a fan of the carousel view for everything. I do think the screen size is great for media consumption.

Hey Trent, two things. First, I'm using the Asus Transformer Infinity (TF700). Love it. It's a noticeable step up and improvement over the 300. Improvements include the processor, memory and screen/display. I checked out a 300 and previously owned a 201, so I am familiar with them. Second, you mentioned that you can't turn to Amazon for a new charger. While you are correct that it's an "Asus only connection," I find that a replacement charging cable may be purchased from Amazon. Either way, enjoy your tablet.

You're absolutely right, I had no idea that you could get a cable on Amazon. I was trying to illustrate the fact its a proprietary connection. Thanks for pointing it out!

seems like a nice unit. that 'annoying' lag may be an artifact due to the power conservation strategy which gives you such a nice battery time. loading apps by the dozens may be remedied by use of sub categories, relieving the os from handling all the handles required at one time during screen refresh. does it get warm, at all, if ever? probably not, & that's a sign of excellent power management and good battery duration. as such, you, as a savvy programmer, may be able to locate that power/speed tweak and improve the lag time. that unused black border around the home icons does seem useless, maybe you can contact asus for an explanation? one other thing, provide more soft lighting in front of you, to illuminate your face. the image now has way too much background intensity for proper uTube or other vids, even a small single table lamp (3500K color) will make a great improvement. PS>> anything proprietary is the work of the devil! ;-))
