TF700 has the slightly faster processor and of course better screen resolution. Fragmentation issues still exist (again rooting would help with some of that). The note has the S pen which is probably the game changer right there if you really put it to full use. Then there's the 2gb of memory for the Note as well. Of course you will have to sacrifice screen resolution. Other points would be TF700 feels much more premium than the plasticky feel on the Note. Asus also get its update faster than Samsung. I say other than Google's own product, Asus's products probably the fastest to get android update. There are however, lot of reports of QC issues on the TF700. Just read all the horror stories on amazon and other websites regarding all kind of QC issues Asus has with the screen.
Yeah I've found that using the S-Pen to teach my son Math (to do exercises) is getting him more interested on it. The Note 10.1 is completely plastic, like you commented, though in a good way (if there's one lol). I think the reasons why I wouldn't switch is 1) Multi-View: having all those apps open alongside is helpful in many occasions. 2) Memory, obviously needed for the Multi-View. 3) S-Pen. Coming from a Note II, it feels natural. 4) Peel to control everything in the house. I do miss the HD resolution on the Fire HD 8.9" sigh.
When will the "totally perfect" tablet be created? lol at least for today's standards anyway.
I think the Note 10.1 with an octa (or whatever is best SoC these days) with FHD (or N10 rez, why not) and keyboard dock available (there's one for the Note 10.1 but would take FOREVER to arrive), with updates as quick as Asus provides...
By the way, was JB what saved the Note 10.1? All I had heard about it was how much it royally sucked, but when I purchased it, I did research again, and it seems that the update completely changed the tablet (for better). That's crazy.
Glad that Asus is on the ball with updates. The TF700 seems to be up there on Android versions.
