    The ASUS Eee pad transformer 'Prime' debuts November 9th and will be thinner (8.3mm) than the Galaxy tab10.1 (8.6mm), and features a Tegra 3 quad core processor, 32g memory, expansion SD slot and HDMI all for $499 which makes it hard to beat. This is the one to own now. Sadly Samsung was too slow out the gate.
