Both are very impressive, but what really kills me is the nexus has no sd card expansion. I want my device to last me for a while and while 32 gigs of storage is alot, my music is going to take up mayber close to half of that. Plus the tf700 has that nice keyboard dock as well as an aluminum back.

Could someone also explain to me which processor is better. I though that quad core was better, yet I hear people say that the nexus has an advanced dual core processor needed to power that beastly screen. The nexus also has double the ram. Could any tech savy people on mcb help me out, and thanks in advance.

The harddrive lmartin posted creates an ad hoc wifi network, the processor and graphics processor in the Nexus 10 are a more advanced architecture than the Tegra 3. The Tegra platform integrates cpu and gpu into a soc (system on a chip), basically one piece of silicon does both cpu and gpu functions with seperate processor cores. The Nexus 10 uses a discrete gpu and cpu, so two chips doing their respective function. Basically 2 high end chips reduces the thermal peak and bus bottlenecks a soc can provide. The Nexus 10 has greater graphics and processing power than the tegra.

That being said the tf700 is not a bad tablet, the only thing you lose compared to the Nexus is some processing power, the screen resolution, nfc, and the always up to date vanilla android.

Cool thanks for the info guys. Now for the harddrive, does that mean in order to use it I need to be in a wifi zone? Or does it make it's own.
