As Spider-Man’s legal guardian will tell you, “With great power comes great responsibility.” According to case maker Noreve, “With a great tablet, such as the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, you need great protection.” We can’t disagree with that logic (from Uncle Ben or Noreve), so if you want to take care of Asus’ flagship tablet you’re going to need a case to guard it from the harsh ways of the world. Here’s our roundup of some of the best coverings currently vying to keep your Transformer Prime in mint condition.
Flash Superstore Premium PU Leather Multifunctional
£10.99 from Amazon
This cover includes all the necessary cutouts for instant access, so you won’t need to remove the Asus EeePad Transformer Prime from the case when charging or using the camera. It opens and closes easily thanks to a magnetic closing flap and the case can be turned over to create a stand for your tablet. At a mere £10.99, and with so many functions on offer, this is a great option for those on a budget.
MiTAB Black Leather Portfolio Flip Carry Case
£24.99 from Amazon
Unlike some cases, MiTAB’s offering allows your Asus EeePadTransformer Prime to be carried with or without its docking keyboard. During use it’s possible to remove the keyboard dock and leave the tablet in the case so it’s always protected. An adjustable stand also means the device can be viewed in portrait or landscape, so it’s great whether you’re watching a film or sweating as Tetris blocks drop down the screen.
Noreve Tradition Leather Case
£59.95 from Mobile Fun
You might expect a case with the name Tradition to look a little stuffy and old-fashioned. Thankfully, this genuine leather covering offers as much modern-day functionality as it does old-world style. Cut-outs allow access to all ports and features so you never need to remove it and the front cover easily folds around to create a viewing stand – perfect for watching films hands free. Naturally it keeps the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime free from scratches, while also offering “some shock resistance.”
Proporta Leather Protective case
£29.95 from Proporta
Made from high-quality leather, this premium sleeve case zips up to wrap around the Transformer Prime. We’re plumping for the classy combination of black leather with a pin stripe interior: it’s simple, understated and just a little bit classy. Hipsters hoping to match their cow hide boots and loud shirts will no doubt choose the brown leather version with a tartan lining. The only downside is there’s no room for the docking station inside.
Proporta Perfora Case
£19.95 from Proporta
Touted as a Transformer Prime case, this satchel-style carrying pouch can actually handle any 10-inch netbook. Thanks to its generously sized interior, there’s no problem fitting the tablet’s docking base inside. It’s faux-leather outer material (available in red or black) helps keep the price down while still guarding against everyday damage such as scratches and knocks, whilst a luxury inner lining cocoons your device in style.
Tuff-Luv Natural Hemp Book Style Case & Stand
£49.99 from Play
This two-in-one case for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime makes it easy to travel with or without the keyboard, thanks to a removeable keyboard cover. An integrated stand props the device up for a comfortable viewing angle and the design allows access to all the Prime’s functions – including the camera. Assorted pouches and holders also help store useful items such as ID cards, SD cards, documents and a stylus or pen.
