Tablets are becoming increasingly essential for workers on the go, and those who like to keep up to date on their online social life whilst out and about.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is an incredibly slim, light choice tablet that punches well above its weight. It weighs just 565 grams and is just 8.6 millimetres thick, but don't be fooled - there's a whole lot of power packed into that tiny space.
With a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 WXGA display boasting a pixel density of 149ppi, you will get great details and colours for videos and photographs. Movies, photos and programs with rich graphics will pop to life on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 screen.
Under the bonnet there's a 1GHz Dual Core NVIDIA Tegra2 Processor to ensure that everything works at lightning speed.
The Asus Transformer Prime is 582 grams, although with its docking station keyboard it weighs 1,121 grams.
It has a 10.1 inch capacitive touch screen, again displaying rich colours that really pop. You can use the on screen keyboard to write, and can flick through web pages and pictures with a tap of one finger, or you can use the keyboard dock and physical keyboard to write with, and a trackpad for navigation - the choice is up to you.
There's a powerful Nvidia Tegra 3 processor behind the scenes, which efficiently handles the multiple tasks and processes that you may throw at it and makes this one of the most powerful tablets to date.
