Anandtech review is up:
AnandTech - ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T) Review

For notebook use, he is not too subtly recommending to wait for the Win 8 transformers in the article.

Droid Life Review

If you are a serious tablet gamer, this is your best option on Android. If you need a tablet that can act as a laptop in sticky situations, this would meet your needs. If you want a device that can give you a stunning media experience thanks to a gorgeous display, then you can’t lose here. If you have yet to purchase your first Android tablet and are looking for an all-encompassing piece of tech, this may be it.



Engadget Review

If it is a crisp display you're after, you'd be foolish not to at least consider the new iPad: for the same money, it offers a lifelike 2048 x 1536 panel -- and it doesn't suffer from performance hiccups like the TF700 either. And you could easily find a third-party keyboard if the typing experience is so important to you. Still, if you're in the market for a new Android tablet, specifically, the TF700 should definitely be on your shortlist: it's not perfect, but it's among the best Ice Cream Sandwich tablets you'll find at any price


Computerworld Review

The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 takes over from its predecessor as the top Android tablet available. You get high performance mixed with high style, and you don't have to make a lot of sacrifices to get both. Other tablets -- including the Prime, which is expected to drop in price once this model gets into the market -- may provide better value, but no other Android tablet will give you the full package that the Infinity does.


Android Central Review

But the bottom line is this: In the world of Android tablets, there's none better than the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. And the ability to convert to an Android tablet only makes it that much better.


Wired Review

WIRED Lots of speed and brawn. Beautiful display is one of the best on a tablet. Ice Cream Sandwich is a joy compared to previous versions of Android. Lightweight. Built with top-notch materials — feels durable, not cheap. Mobile dock adds a comfortable keyboard and a significant battery life boost.

TIRED The mobile dock is expensive at $150, and its trackpad isn’t great. Poor speaker design. Android still doesn’t have enough tablet-optimized apps.

PC World Review

The high-resolution display saps battery life faster, and that drawback is visible in the Infinity's battery performance. On our updated battery life tests, the Infinity lasted 7 hours, 58 minutes, versus the Prime's 8 hours, 22 minutes and the iPad's 10 hours, 46 minutes. But it was super-fast at recharging, requiring just 2 hours, 32 minutes to juice up.


PC Magazine Review

But you shouldn't be buying a tablet for simple web browsing, reading, and video watching—you buy a tablet for the apps. And right now, Android is still sorely lagging behind the iOS experience. The TF700 does have the advantage of a pretty useful keyboard docking station. But peripherals like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover ($99, 4 stars) or ClamCase ($149, 4 stars) can bring pretty similar functionality to the iPad. The TF700 is a valiant effort to dethrone the iPad's dominance, and it still has some serious potential if more apps come out that can showcase the high-resolution display. Until then, the iPad remains our Editors' Choice as the tablet to get.


Computer Shopper Review

We could spend more time pointing out the tablet's minor minuses, like the fact that you don't get a USB port of any kind unless you buy the keyboard dock, or the proprietary cable that's needed for charging (via the dock port). But once you see the screen in action (from just about any angle), you'll forget these minor gripes. We certainly did, which is why we left them until the end. Now, if you'll pardon us, we're off to play another round of Garfield's Defense.


Laptopmag Review

Looking for the best and brightest display in an Android tablet need look no further than the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. Its gorgeous 10-inch 1920 x 1200 Super IPS screen literally outshines the competition, and its new Tegra 3 processor packs a serious punch. These two features alone make the $499 starting price -- $100 more than the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10 -- more than worth it. The Infinity's so-so audio and dearth of full HD apps dampen our enthusiasm a bit. But overall the the Transformer Pad Infinity is now the Android tablet to beat.
