The Transformer comes with a docking option that incorporates a QWERTY keyboard and serves as a battery extension station for up-to 16 hours of non-stop computing. The Slider is equipped with a sliding keyboard for those who desire higher mobility capabilities in a tablet product along with excellent battery life.
