Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700 review

A hybrid Android Ice Cream Sandwich device, which features a 10.1in Super IPS+ display, an NVIDIA quad-core processor, but has a steep £600 asking price.

Design

In terms of design, we love the Infinity 700's simplicity. Whilst the keyboard dock isn't going to set the world on fire, the champagne silver brushed metal looks stunning and makes it the best looking tablet on the market.

Like its predecessors, the Infinity 700 is a sturdy unit. Clicking the tablet and the keyboard together is achieved with a cushioned mechanism, and you won't be able to separate the two without extreme force unless you slide the unlock button to the left. Like Microsoft's forthcoming Surface tablet, the tablet part of the unit is heaviest, so tilting the screen too far back can make all too easy to tip over. This isn't great if you are madly trying to finish a document when lying in bed, but on a desk it's a non-issue. If the surface is relatively flat, all should be well.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700 - Dock

The design looks great and build quality is solid

A rear-facing 8-megapixel camera sits neatly next to the LED flash, and a two-megapixel front-facing one provides you with video call functionality. Image quality is good on the former, but we don't often find ourselves inclined to loft a weighty tablet around for potential photo opportunities. Far more important for business use is video calling, and in this department the quality is good enough.

Adding to the Infinity 700's repertoire, there is an SD card reader and also a USB 2.0 port on the keyboard dock, which means you can effectively transfer files from a USB stick or connect peripherals such as a mouse.
