ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T Review and Giveaway

Justin Pot 17-01-2013

The $599 64GB ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) is a high-powered, lightweight tablet with a detachable keyboard you’ll actually enjoy typing on. Not everyone thinks the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity is the best tablet What You Need To Know Before Buying A Tablet Tablets are starting to mature.

Read More on the market, but I can’t imagine wanting to own a different one. This is Android at its best, and you’ll love it.


I hate reviewing hardware. I feel like I’m supposed to claim some sort of expertise I don’t have, saying things like “this is ASUS’ flagship tablet” and “the most powerful Android device on the market” when I’ve no idea whether either is true or not.

So I won’t pretend to be an expert. I’m going to write this review from my point of view, pointing out reasons I think the 64GB ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity is a great tablet you should maybe think of getting – and definitely enter to win below because we’re giving one away. Let’s get started.

The Power

asus transformer pad infinity review tf700t

I just realized something: the resolution on this tablet is actually higher than my computer, and identical to my television: 1920 × 1200. So this little screen can show off a lot of details, making it perfect for browsing the web, watching videos or reading comic books.

It’s got the power to match. There’s a NVIDIA Tegra 3 4-Plus-1 Quad-core CPU @ 1.6Ghz with 12-core GPU, which are fancy words for saying “it’s fast”. The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity plays back HD video without any problems, and there aren’t many games in the Google Play Store it can’t handle with ease.


asus transformer pad infinity review tf700t

With the keyboard attached, ASUS claims a 14-hour battery life. That’s generous if you use your tablet to, you know, do things, but the battery will hold up for a couple of days of off-and-on usage without charging, in my experience.

I have the model with a 64 GB SSD, and I have to admit: I’m not sure what I’m going to do with all of this space. Apps won’t fill it quickly and my music lives on the cloud thanks to Google Play. I suppose I’ll just need to rip my HD video collection to it. The tablet includes a microSD reader, if you need more space. The keyboard offers a regular SD reader.

There: I wrote about the technical stuff. Let’s move on to actual usage.


The Form Factor

Like I said: I’m not an expert reviewer of tablets. I’ve even written rants about why I’m glad I don’t own a tablet 4 Reasons I'm Glad I Own A Netbook And Not A Tablet [Opinion] A key argument is that tablets are killing the "netbook" market. I can see that: if you want a small device with great battery life for browsing the web it's hard to beat a tablet.... Read More . But man: I love this thing. It’s thin (85 mm) and relatively light, meaning it’s comfortable to hold with one hand from the couch. The aluminum case is solid; the glass front is shiny. You know: tablet stuff.

asus transformer pad infinity review tf700t

If you like reading comics, you’re in luck: the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity is sized just right, and the HD screen really makes them pop. Videos look great too, and it’s hard to imagine a better way to quickly scroll through RSS feeds than this (if you find the right app).

So the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity has quickly become my go-to way to consume the best the web has to offer, from the comfort of my couch. It’s great for playing games, too. But it also works for getting things done. The cameras on this thing is surprisingly good. Front-facing is perfect for video chat; rear-facing is 8MP. The flash is insanely bright and takes some getting used to.

The Keyboard

I wanted a tablet that could, in a pinch, become a replacement for my computer. I’m a writer by trade, so for me a computer replacement means a competent keyboard. (Microsoft: what you’re doing with the Surface Tablet Microsoft Surface Tablet Review and Giveaway Read More is okay I guess, but I need a keyboard that clicks.)

The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity snaps nicely into its keyboard, and when it does you’d hardly know it wasn’t a netbook to begin with. Sure, the balance is odd – the “monitor” weighs more than it should. The keyboard also offers a single USB port, so you can plug in a mouse or USB drive if you want.

asus transformer pad infinity review tf700t


Even better: instead of draining the tablet, the keyboard dock actually charges it thanks to an on-board battery. The extra battery life comes in handy.

asus transformer pad infinity review tf700t

There are occasional annoyances: far too many apps for Android are built without the existence of physical keyboards in mind. But the Transformer Pad Infinity comes with a fairly competent Microsoft Office alternative, and a bunch more are available in the Google Play Store.

The Google

But my favorite reason for using this tablet is probably Android itself. I use Gmail for email, Google Docs for collaborating, Google Voice for SMS and GChat for chatting. If you are, like me, a constant users of Google’s services there’s no way around it: Android is the tablet operating system for you. Everything Google just works in Android.

asus transformer pad infinity review tf700t

And while many deride the Google Play Store’s Android offerings compared to the iTunes store, for me this isn’t an issue. I’m new to tablets in general, but I’ve found a wide variety of apps for doing everything from editing images to syncing my files to controlling my XBMC media center.

And don’t overlook Google Now Top 12 Jelly Bean Tips For A New Google Tablet Experience Android Jelly Bean 4.2, initially shipped on the Nexus 7, provides a great new tablet experience that outshines previous versions of Android. It even impressed our resident Apple fan. If you have a Nexus 7,... Read More . This isn’t a Siri equivalent; it’s better. Turn your tablet on anywhere and Google will show you relevant information about your location: nearby places to eat, what time the next bus will show up, upcoming appointments and flights you need to catch. You don’t even have to ask, but if you feel like asking a question you’ll get the best answers Google can provide.

The ASUS Transformer Infinity comes with an extremely capable GPS. Combine this with Google Map’s turn-by-turn directions app (included) and the ability to download entire cities for offline use and you’ll never get lost again. There’s an e-compass, too, if you need to know which way North is.

So yeah, I’m a Google fanboy and as such love everything Google. Get over it. If you love Google too, however, you’ll love this tablet.


I’m enjoying this tablet, and think you will too.

    At the beginning of the article you have written the following:
    "The $599 64GB ASUS"
    But further the article, you have written the following:
    "If you’re eager to own a brand new $450 ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity".

    Is the price of the device $599 or $450?
    Please clarify.

    I've been getting your newsletters for a long time and find many very interesting articles and I do the giveaway thing sometimes but lately it has screwed. I am not a faeces or a twit or a rubber duck, life is too short, so it would seem you have put me out of the loop on the giveaways. Points, rewards, green shield stamps? It used to be so easy. Disappointed, though I know I am very very unlikely to be losing anything at all which is why I won't spend any more time than this on the subject.

        A limit that will never be reached by us mortal, legitimate users. I don't even know how to earn points anymore. Do comments earn you points or is it only likes that do? If it is only likes, then they only earn you 1 measly point. I can't believe that the top point earners are beginner commenters. It's like they don't even have a presence on this site.
        Sigh, gone are the days when comments netted you 10 points immediately.

    I will give everything I own for this great device.
    I participate in your contests for several years, and unfortunately your competition in any I could not win anything. So I'm thinking that this time I can do it, because to be honest the most this device handy to me.
    And that's what you say, namely that the tablet would use if I did that for a variety of manuals, for example, is a handy device to me for the Manual of CISCO, the laptop is too heavy for me, so a tablet would help me in my work I could carry the device with them everywhere and all I had available Manuale that I need in one place. That's why I'd choose you ask me in this contest. Not to mention that on 25.01 (that's my birthday next week), and this award was to me the greatest and most wonderful gift for my birthday which I have in a week. This tablet is a dream of mine since I was introduced iPad counterparts famous, I always wanted to have an alternative famous iPad device. So much I please help me fulfill my dream which is Tablet. :)

    As I said yesterday, this would make a kickin' toy for a grumpy old woman, but honestly, I won't complain if I don't win it because I get enough benefit from the site contributors themselves to make the time I spend on site and reading the emails that I honestly would feel a bit childish.

    That being said.......I want one too LOL!

    Thanks to the help from all the readers here I purchased one of this myself! I love mine!!! a must have also is the screen protector. I also just purchased a case for it, which looks like a business binder.. yes you can even keep the kb attached.

      oh also in my minimum experience with my product.. if you are on the road.. have your phone plugged into the charger and if you have it as a hot spot you can and endless entertainment ... I stayed in a hotel that had really weak internet service so I just used my phone and I was able to watch my shows, the speakers are really not that loud.. and I'm not a headset type of a person so I just got myself a mini hamburger speaker (which I got Free) and it does the trick, or you can cup your hand by the speaker to hear a bit more. I've also picked up a stylus for 3.00 ea, yes I picked up more than 1 since I tend to forget where I put them... and this is my very first tablet ... =), I can keep mine unplugged for 3 days and it will still work, but I also don't use it much unless I'm traveling.

    BTW, It looks like a really nice machine! I love the recharge-from-keyboard feature because sometimes you just need that little extra time! Not to mention, I too prefer real keyboards. The keyboard, though, looks almost like a chromebook keyboard?

That's what's up Man I really need something like this for my son who loves to make and record music, but he never has the storage space, and the speed capability to do it successfully. This will definitely be on his birthday wish list.

    I started a home business more than a year ago and my computer died a few months ago and haven't had it in the budget to replace it with anything decent for what I have to spend. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this giveaway!!

  154. Peter Lydon
    January 17, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    One of the places where this beat the iPad is that it has USB ports and compatibility - so you can plug in a mouse, an external hard drive etc. It has a HDMI slot so it connects easily to a TV and it's got a microSD slot. There's a lot more going on with this for the same money as a plain iPad sans keyboard, ports etc.

  170. Alan
    January 17, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    I have returned two Asus transformers - tf101 and tf300 under warranty, as the dock battery does not hold charge. Be wary and check when you get the machine. The dock battery charges and if you leave the machine on it discharges immediately. I suspect most users do not realise this is happening as they probably rely on the tablet battery most of the time.

    • Justin Pot
      January 17, 2013 at 8:36 pm

      The keyboard battery discharges because it's charging the tablet. That's how it should work.

      • Alan
        January 17, 2013 at 8:52 pm

        Correct Justin - that is what it should do. You should note though, that I used the word 'immediately', as the dock battery discharges so rapidly it does not have time to charge the main (tablet) battery. This feature is well documented in the transformer forums - and, reluctantly acknowledged by Asus. I suspect that most users do not realise this is happening as they recharge the (main) battery regularly..

        • Justin Pot
          January 17, 2013 at 8:55 pm

          Oops, was confused. I'll be on the lookout for this, then...

  171. Zimbrul
    January 17, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    You say it's got a usb port for plugging in a mouse. Does the tablet show a curssor when doing so?

    • Justin Pot
      January 17, 2013 at 8:36 pm

      When the keyboard is plugged in, yes! There's a trackpad on the keyboard.

    Nothing came up on the facebook page when I entered the pulldown for giveaway codes. If this is a bogus offer or an attempt to inhabit the cyberbody of my desktop, there will be consequences. Help.

    Isn't there a decimal point missing in "85 mm" under Form Factor??? 85 mm is over 3 inches and certainly not thin.

    I loved in when Justin wrote " I am not a Hardware Geek " , cracked me up, and even thou I build/upgrade/troubleshoot computers for my friends and family ( and have been doing it since my 1st build in 1998 ) I am not up to date with all of the latest and greatest Gadgets that are out there now.
    Heck my "dumb phone" won't even take pictures or go on the web ( well it might, but I'm not paying for that service). I used to have a laptop but it got stolen when I went to the bathroom at a job interview. ( I didn't get the job either, but I did get a ticket/fine for the parking meter running out ).
    I did read the stats on this ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity and WOW...its way faster than either of the 2 desktop computers I have.. a Quad-core CPU and a 12-core GPU...WOW again...and that screen resolution is waaay higher too.
    I also like the fact that you can plug the keyboard into it and it acts as a backup battery...too kool.
    ....and its got a GPS...WOW again

    Ok I'm ready to win this...just wait till all of my "Geeky" friends see me with this...they'll be so enviess ( not sure if thats a word ? but you know, full of envy..instead of .... ) I bet they all run out and get one just to keep up with me.

    This is a great little tablet. I own a T300 and just love it.
    I recomend Asus tablet to everyone that asks me my opinion. The detachable keyboard is so light weight and can be removed even while using the system. Just plug or unplug and keep on working!

    I wish you would email the code to enter the give-aways. I read over all the product information and always entered before when you included the password via email.

    January 17, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Most confusing & complicated way of entering a contest I have ever seen. Tried to use the Alternate Method of claiming additional entries & it won't load - just sits there saying "claiming"...?

    This looks a lot like a Microsoft Surface and I'm liking it. Since I don't have a tablet of any kind, I'd really like the opportunity to use one, especially with a keyboard. And no, it's not my birthday's just Thursday and I want one. Thanks.

    The keyboard dock can recharge the tablet, pretty awesome! Been wanting to replace my laptop with one of these.

  252. Keith Bernard
    January 17, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    I'm interested now...I have a Galaxy Tab and an iPad and while both are nice, neither are good replacements for a laptop when it comes to writing.

  253. Kcalpesh Ajugia
    January 17, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    This looks cool!! Apart from the Android OS, the best part I found about this is the extra battery life you can get when the keyboard is attached to the tablet...
