QRCodeforVotingLast week, we told you about NVIDIA's first Player's Choice Awards - a way to let the players speak out about which Tegra Zone games have the best graphics, the best gameplay, and are just the most fun to sit down and play. Not only that, but NVDIA is giving away seven Tegra Zone Gamepacks to seven lucky winners just for voting in the PCA. So, if you haven't done so already, head over to the Tegra Zone and vote for your favorites! (alternatively, just hit the QR code on the right to go there on your mobile).

Speaking of awesome Tegra Zone games with incredible graphics, have you seen Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II? It's beautiful. The difference between the Tegra 3 version of the game and the non-Tegra version is like night and day. Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself:

Sonic 4 Episode II - Tegra 3 S X S 1

Sonic 4 Episode II - Tegra 3 S X S 2

See? the textures and sceneries really are gorgeous in this game. You don't have to take my word for it, though - hit the widget below to grab it for yourself!

  • Frank Stathes

    Keyboard dock!

  • James Lee

    My favorite features of Transformer Pad 300 are the Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Gorilla glass display, micro SD card slot and it has Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich software system out of the box!

  • Richard Berry

    I have to say the battery life and the keyboard are what makes this tablet.  At work it's useful to quickly pass out information that pertains to the conversation at hand, and it makes note-taking quick and painless.

  • Matthew

    I like the graphics the best.

  • Jose Hadathy

    The best part of the tablet is the amount of power you get with the Tegra 3 processor at such a great value, I want one so bad! 

  • Doug Nichols

    My favorite part is the keyboard.

  • kminer1

    The awesome 1280x800 display!  Thank you for this great giveaway.

  • J McLaughlin

    keyboard dock has to be the best part

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XNHPTPFTKWYN4UCWBSMCLLHRCI Kevin

    My favorite feature has to be the quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor because it can handle the harsh graphic games that I like to play :)

  • http://twitter.com/homncruse Aaron Burke

    Um, given the Tegra 3 exclusivity of so many highly anticipated games lately, I'd say my favorite feature of the TF300 is the Tegra 3.

  • http://twitter.com/mexedavian Mexed Avian

    My favorite feature is probably that the dock adds tons more battery life. I also like the Tegra 3 optimized games

  • SCJaredJ

    Fav Feature: Only 1??? How about that it is an awesome tablet! Love the processor, look, connectivity...it all! So, yeah, "it" / "the entire package" is my favorite feature!

  • Dan Pipitone

    extra battery life from the dock

  • Terry Poulin

    The dock of course!

  • http://twitter.com/jdnorthwest JD Northwest

    That really is a box full of awesome! I'm going to go with that amazing Tablet/Laptop transformation feature. But the 10.1" 1280x800 display is drool worthy as well.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=662583146 Jonathan Weltback

    Favorite feature is the awesomeness of Tegra and being able to play great games.

  • stephen shavers

    my favorite feature is the fact that you can attach it to a keyboard and use it as a laptop. I don't use my laptop much, but it would be nice to use a keyboard with my tablet every now and then

  • Quizzy317

    Keyboard is the best feature. No other tablet has this, differentiating it from the pack

  • FaSSt2001

    Definitely the Tegra3

  • thatguy

    I really like the fact that a high end quad core processor is available on a budget device.

  • doebeats

    It has to be the keyboard.  This helps separate it from the other tablets.

  • Tommy Thompson

    Functional GPS without the use of a dongle would be my favorite feature.

  • Bojan Gutic

    My favorite feature continues to be the keyboard dock that functions as a battery/charger =]

  • Brandon Faunce

    The keyboard dock is easily my favorite feature.  Turns it into a true laptop replacement AND gives extra battery life to boot!

  • Corben Crew

    I can never seem to win anything ever, but my favorite feature is the 
    1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 4processor that kicks butts consistently and when resting has the -plus-1 to take more names. 

  • Corben Crew

  • HonKudasai

    My favorite feature is that it provides the best bang for your buck. The price point, ASUS's build quality, and the versatility of the keyboard dock blow other tablets out of the water.

  • Chosenway

    My Favorite feature would have to be the processor. I plan to do so much with all of that speed...

  • miso_sori

    My favorite feature is the ability to use the dock to basically turn it into a netbook when you need a little more juice and functionality.

  • mduran1023

    I like the IPS display. Under the hood is nice, but Tegra 3 and IPS is just nice to look at.

  • Josh

    Love the dock!

  • http://wyldtek.com/ wyldtek

    Definitely the keyboard dock

  • Scottyb112

    I love the fact that its a beautiful and awesome new tablet, which I do not have one and so want one, but cant buy one.. So hopefully I win!   But the Tegra 3 would be the icing on this cake!

  • silencer

    It's both the keyboard and the Tegra 3 for me. Keyboard makes it so easy to use and the Tegra 3 brings in top notch graphics capabilities.

  • http://www.feedchimp.com/ Nick DeSousa

    My favorite feature of the Transformer Pad 300 is the BEAUTIFUL 1280x800 IPS Display.  It's a close victory above the EPIC keyboard dock, but that display makes this Android tablet amazing even out of it's shell.

  • Voodoodror

    The Tegra 3 is so powerful! I can do anything I want !

  • Brandito

    Love the keyboard dock.

  • Mike

    I think the best feature of the transformer pad is the optional keyboard dock. I have the Atrix, which does a similar think but with a phone. It's a great idea, but the biggest downside is the lack of a touchscreen and an optimized interface. The pad does everything the atrix failed to do and much more. It's a netbook, a tablet, and simply put it's awesome

  • http://twitter.com/kingJamesG James G

    Favorite feature is that it has ICS and the Tegra 3! What else would a tablet need! 

  • doubleksquared

    My favorite feature is the Tegra 3, the speed and the graphics it's capable of are amazing.

  • Ryan B

    The chip. I would love to play the new Sonic on that bad boy.

  • edgar amaya

    dock and tegra 3, with those two awesomesauce things i could make any ipad user jelly :)

  • Fabio Göttlicher

    Well, where to begin....As with other Transformers, the detachable keyboard with extra battery is great, innovative, and literally a feature of my dreams.
    Kudos for the awesome blue color.

  • TwilitSky

    I probably won't consider a tablet unless it has a keyboard dock available. Which the transformer series does. :)

  • William Morris

    I like the price, really competitive--good move ASUS

  • http://twitter.com/prmckinney prmckinney

    Quad Core would be my favorite feature...  less lag/input delay is always a good thing

  • http://twitter.com/Rick64 Rick Yamamoto

    Without a doubt, the quad core processor is the best feature of this tablet.

  • Dtwhsieh

    I bought the original Transformer because of the versatility of the keyboard dock. So of course that's the best feature. I sold it because I thought I wanted to get a Transformer Prime. Before I pulled the trigger Asus came out with Transformer 300. So now I want Transformer 300.

  • Drewtang1

    The quad core tegra processor looks amazing, would love to put it through it's paces :) also, the overall look, I like the brushed look or the back, and the overall build quality, very sexy.

  • Drake Arconis

    That Tegra3 and the dock..!

  • http://www.facebook.com/hien34 Hien Nguyen

    suh-weet - this solved the initial "tablet-only" problem since adding another keyboard was kludgy at-best... loved the original Transformer and looking forward to the Infinity!  Now let me win something..... D:!

  • ckaria

    Tegra 4+1 processor  with the standby core for power saving is my favorite feature.

  • Brian R

    It's the keyboard dock for me too. Longer battery, plus typing naturally. That's the ticket. 

  • Griffin Tran

    Gotta love that quad core processor! I'm stuck with Tegra 2 :(

  • tehsusenoh

    The display. I'm a sucker for a nice display.

  • Thicrae

    Whats the best too me is the microhdmi an 32gb of storage.

    THANKS: Thicrae@gmail.com

  • Shaun Wright

    My favorite feature has to be the processing power, if you call that a feature.  The games, and graphics period, look amazing.  Tegras are gaming beasts, unfortunately I cannot afford one or one like it yet, but it looks like they're a lot of fun.

  • morrm1

    I think the dock is my favorite part. I tried it at a store a while ago and it was awesome! Since its not techincally part of the tablet itself, if it doesnt count I think the backing of the device is my favorite. I love how it feels for some reason

  • http://twitter.com/Scotty_Braun Scotty Braunworth

    The awesomeness of the Tegra 3 quad core processor to get the party started right ;)

  • LarryOmen

    I love the centered rear camera on the tablet. The offset camera on my galaxy tab is so annoying!

  • HeavyTizzle

     My favorite feature would be the Tegra 3 processor at 1.3Ghz. After that I would say the microHDMI access that would allow me to plug it into a TV and show friends just what the tablet can do!

  • Peruboy63

    1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 4-plus-1 processor of course!

  • BlackAce15

    I could use one of those.

  • ellett

    If I had to pick one feature it would probably be the dock, but really it's the total package, form factor, screen, processor, memory...

  • http://twitter.com/mcmedellin Mateo Medellin

    favorite feature? the whole thing is gorgeous. However if I had to chose one it would be the expandable memory slot

  • nmwhit06

    I LOVE the miniHdMI port on it! That would be awesome for watching movies in hotel rooms or anywhere really!

  • Ryan Berkeley

    My favorite feature has to be the screen size and the awesome specifications it offers. Yes, it's not really a feature per se but compared to other tablets in the market, I think it's offering is really great.

  • http://www.facebook.com/saramon123 Jeremy Lowry

    The keyboard dock is fantastic, gotta love Tegra, Pick me please :)

  • MikeEx

    The monstrous hardware this baby packs. Also the tilt keyboard dock that treats this beast like a netbook.

  • Kaito Aviles

    I love that it is versatile, you can dock it and have a full keyboard to type up documents for work on the go. Then you can get your game on during your lunch break. You can keep your kids entertained in the back for a road trip. There is no end to how it can Transform! 
    So the feature I would have to say is the Nvidia Tegra chip, hands down best graphics out there. 

  • Fabricio Morato

    I like the price + tegra 3!

  • messs17

    The transformation ofcourse!

  • Msmith1356

    Are you kidding me? Favorite feature? All of them! Especially the fact that it's free ;)

  • BrungerM

    Pricepoint and Tegra 3!

  • Sohyun2

    Favorite feature? The Android OS. Suck it, Apple.

  • Alex

    The extra nice backing which when paired with the keyboard dock makes it look like an insane nice laptop! Don't even wanna mention the 1.3 ghz Quad core!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1129880256 Joe Pelar

    Tegra 3 is definitely the best part!

  • Axtn95

    It's blazing fast! Tried it out, the browser on ICS with quad core is faster than ever, meaning, visiting AndroidPolice on the go will be even quicker now!

  • N8shon

    For me, my favorite part about the Transformer is it's versatility. I love the fact that it can function in tablet only form as a content viewer, then become a content creator so quickly when it's docked. It's brilliant.

  • HGamesTeamCato

    Tegra 3 looks sick, want to show off my new tech to my friends ;) It seems so blazing fast, as well as one of the top tablets out there, and have been trying to win this from you guys since Christmas. 

  • Taliesin

    Of course, the most awesome feature is the one it's known for the world over: its ability to transform before your very eyes. Thus the power of the Transformer.

  • smachalek

    I like the Tegra quad core processor!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=194303663 Jennifer Witt

    I have to say the processor but a close second is the keyboard. LOVE IT!

  • Conan

    Tegra 3, so I could, you know, actually be able to play the Tegra 3-only games...

  • pharmdy

    Love me that display and speed!

  • Guest Who

    Quad Core Tegra 3 processor. Amazing!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=45607646 Wade Arenberg

    OMG that just freaking rocks. I really love the entire tablet and every feature that was put into it, I mean what is not to like. But if I have to pick just one feature it has to be the ability to dock the thing and make it into a laptop or use it as a pure tablet.

  • imbakhle

    My favorite feature has to be the Tegra 3 processor... I really want to see that thing in action

  • Ivan92116

    the tegra 3 processor of course :-)

  • Markg

    the processor is the the best spec on this tablet!

  • Ali AlAli

    I love how you can turn it into a laptop so easy, and carry it to school.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/RR2IKHO2CD5SAFD54COVNEOVYQ Rob

    multiple input methods: 254mm full QWERTY keyboard + touchpad + touchscreen

  • Patrick Soon

    My favorite feature is the docking station that gives it an extra 5 hours of battery power. Talk about smart thinking!

  • Steve Arrington

    Holy spumoni! I'm salivating over the hard drive space. Plenty of space for my media ( for now, mwahaha).

  • TheAxe99

    A phone which converts into a tablet... Why wouldn't I want one?

  • Seth M

    My favorite feature is that you can play Sonic on it! And also maybe the android 4.0 in tablet form... mmm

  • http://twitter.com/hasanjaved25 Hasan Javed

    love the tegra3 inside this tab

  • TheAxe99

    A Tegra 3 with a detachable keyboard... Why wouldn't I want one?

  • Sheldon Mcarthy

    Tegra 3 makes it amazingly fast!

  • John

    I'd love that for the keyboard, fat fingers with virtual keys aren't exactly a great couple.

  • IVILyric

    I like the streamlined look of the tablet

  • Joe Attardi

    Please pick me

  • http://www.newsgroupservers.net/ TC

    My favorite thing about the 300 is the combination of Tegra 3 and decent price!

  • Joe Attardi

    My favorite is the keyboard!

  • Lindsay Garcia

    I would LOVE to have this!

  • Bretbowlby

    SweeSweet!,

  • DaJon Hawkins

    My favorite feature of the ASUS PAD 300 would have to be the ability to dock it and turn it into a quite powerful touch screen netbook a small $150 price to unlock some serious productivity out of this beast. I'd just love it for school in the Fall. 

  • Bretbowlby

    What is dyed not to love! This tablet has good battery life, an awesome dock and is pushing the tegra 3, not somE off name version of the cortex A9.

  • alex2aii

    Why the keyboard, of course.

  • Tim

    Well.... aside from the awesome Tegra3 chipset? I guess my favorite feature is the slick black design and matching dock. It looks gorgeous.

  • aiden9

    The price? The specs? The keyboard? Well if I can only pick one then I'd have to choose the keyboard, it was an innovative move on Asus' part.

  • Dennis

    The awesome quad-core processor! Top that ipad!

  • http://www.facebook.com/sd4david David Haug

    it comes in blue...my favorite color :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/lee.goldschmidt Lee Goldschmidt

    My favorite feature is the keyboard. This keyboard is what truly differentiates it from other Android tablets, and adds a level of functionality not seen on other tablets. Lightweight and portable, this "tabtop" fills it's own, wonderful niche.

  • Shaun

     The Tegra 3 of course, but the keyboard is pretty cool too.

  • http://www.downbeattech.com Jon Bauerle

    Keyboard option is by far my favorite!

  • Veridor

    My favorite feature has to be the keyboard dock. Turns an already awesome tablet into a netbook replacement.
