This leads me to ask, which Asus tablet is the all-around best? When asking this question, it’s important to consider price, hardware, software, accessories, and many other options.

Two months after the Transformer Pad 300 got its official bootloader unlocking tool, it’s now time for its big brother, the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, to receive its passport to freedom. The Transformer Pad Infinity is the flagship of ASUS’ 2012 lineup of Android slates, and for many, the best Android-based tablet available on the market right now.

Fortunately, ASUS is one of the Android OEMs that gives savvy users the opportunity to make the most out of…
