This is the lowest priced quad-core tablet we've seen, which goes big on value, something that's welcomed by double-dip recession hit wallets everywhere.

sunspider 0.9.1 benchmark Web browser and javascript performance

The TF300's Web speeds in the default browser were a few seconds slower than the iPad's when travelling to the same sites; but still a couple seconds quicker than the Prime, on average.

BrowserMark How fast does the web browser load pages

Chrome is a little better, but again, it's better on every device — it seems like Android browser performance only gets but so good.
