The Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU promises up to five times the performance of its predecessor, enabling much better graphics in games while consuming less power.

Available in either Amethyst Gray or Champagne Gold, the Transformer Prime comes standard with a microSD card slot and a mini HDMI slot. If you attach the $149 mobile keyboard dock, you also get full-size USB and SD card slots.
