    I think I may answer my own question by stating the prices of these, but I would still like opinions anyway... I have my heart set on an Asus Transformer tablet (+ dock), but have been deciding between the Prime and the Infinity - both of which have just become available again on Amazon.co.uk.

    The Infinity (64GB), sold and dispatched by Amazon, costs

    UPDATE:

    So, a bit of confusion... it seems the cheaper of the two models is actually a TF101, so NOT a Prime (please confirm?).

    However, there IS a 32GB TF201 (Prime?) with dock for

    The Infinity is basically a Prime with improved Wifi and GPS signals. The trade-off is entirely up to you.

    I have a Prime and I love the thing. It's razor thin, feels extremely sturdy, the screen is amazing, and it's super fast. BUT, I'm really bummed about the GPS issues. I cannot get a lock and Asus is no longer giving out a free dongle (not that I want one anyway). So, I'm actually on the hunt for a cheap Infinity in the US.

    But if you have no interest in using your tablet for GPS, then you might save yourself some money and go with the Prime. It's really a beast!

    Believe the Infinity has a slightly better screen resolution as well.

    I had the prime, and traded it for the infinity through warranty claim. Both are very good, the resolution of the prime is 720p, while the infinity is 1080p. The processor in the infinity is better, but it actually lags a little bit more because it has to push so many more pixels than the prime. Also, battery life was much better on the prime because of that as well. Prime lasted about 10-12 hours without keyboard, infinity about 8. Both are currently running 4.1.1, no word on 4.2 for any device that I know of. Some more things to consider before you buy.

    It's the same processor, it's just clocked higher. If you root a prime and OC it 200 KHz, you have an Infinity without the higher resolution screen.
