With the neverending flood of tablets on Woot I wonder how they continue to sell any (if they do) to the presumably pretty repeat audience of Woot buyers.
I have an iPad 2 that I use daily and really have no complaints about. I also bought an add on keyboard for it (on Woot, come to think of it.) Is there any particular reason I should consider this or any other table sale on Woot?
I generally just ignore the tablet sales because "I already got one".
It depends on your needs. This has a much faster CPU (Quad core Tegra 3 vs Duo Core A5), better still camera (better optics and LED flash), better video (1080p vs 720p) better display (1280x800 vs 1024x768), Gorilla Glass, real GPS and a dealbreaker for many people, microSD cards for memory expansion and ease of moving files. For example, I have different SD cards with movies, music, etc that I can simply swap in and out. No need to go through iTunes...ugh.
As for the keyboard, there is no comparison. Unlike your generic Bluetooth keyboard, this Transformer's keyboard is tightly integrated with the tablet. In fact, it's no mere keyboard; it's also a dock and charger. So while your Bluetooth keyboard is draining your iPad (due to Bluetooth), this keyboard is doing the opposite: It charges the tablet, giving you up to 15 hrs of operation. And you get a real touchpad, making it a true laptop replacement. For me, editing a paper is much easier with a cursor and mouse/touchpad than a touchscreen. Finally, you also get a full size USB port on the keyboard for universal expandability.
With 32gb of internal memory, a 32gb microSD card in the tablet, another 32gb SD card in the keyboard's SD slot, and a 32gb USB drive, you can have a lot of memory. And when I'm editing a large video project, all those slots are filled. Speaking of editing videos, the Tegra 3 has enough power to reasonably edit/convert/compress long videos. Not so for the iPad 2.
In short, the iPad (even with a keyboard) is just a tablet. This is a true laptop replacement in power, expandability, and memory.
