That's perfect advice, seems too many unnecessary fights in the forum recently. :)

Sorry man, I need to constantly remind myself some people just read the ads and price and don't know anything about electronics. I'll grow up and get over it.

Electronics aren't only about specs... design, build quality and performance aren't things you can just leave out when you're talking about electronics.

To cut the costs and make it within Google's price point, they had to change the originally planned processor from a Tegra 3 to a Tegra 2

The new iPad. Or the old iPad is better too. Or maybe the middle iPad is more attractive at the same price point.

There's been many rumours about this but nobody will know for sure until Google releases more info.

Another site stated that they might not change the processor.

http://www.slashgear.com/google-nexus-t ... -06221825/

It all depends on what Google wants to price the tablet at. If they want it to be $150 to compete with Amazon, then Tegra 3 certainly won't be in the picture.

Hopefully the tf300 also fixes the microsd card slot issue that Prime had. When the microsd card was inserted in the Prime it was protruding quite a bit. The TF101 it fit perfectly.

no brainer to get the 32gb version if its only $20 more. So it is confirmed it is tegra 3.

Another favourable review

Correct. No Super IPS+ display in this one

Shameless Edit:

Specs here http://eee.asus.com/eeepad/transformer-300/features/

Shameless Edit 2:

"The TF300 has a 1.2 GHz Tegra 3 processor while the TF200 has a 1.3 GHz version
The new model doesn’t have an LED flash for the rear camera.
The new model has 16GB of storage while the original comes in 32GB or 64GB versions.
Battery life tops out at 8.5 hours for the tablet or 12 hours with the keyboard docking station. The TF200 can run for up to 18 hours with the dock or 9.5 hours without.
The TF300 is also a hair thicker than the TF200, measuring 9.9mm thick instead of 8.3mm. It’s also heavier, at 640 grams (or about 1.4 pounds) rather than 582 grams (1.3 pounds)."

Staples preorder at 399 has 32gb
