In an Asus Eee Pad Transformer review at Laptopmag.com, an expert praises the capacitive touchscreen, noting how vibrant colors look on the display. Both those reviewers, as well as experts at PCWorld and CNET, note in Asus Eee Pad Transformer reviews that a major selling point is an optional keyboard docking station that effectively transforms this tablet into a laptop (hence the name Transformer).
