I cannot vouch for the Asus or Sony, but I do have a Toshiba Thrive tablet and I love it. Yes, it's a bit bulkier and heavier than others, but that's because it has full-sized ports, such as full size USB, HDMI, and SD slots, along with some others. The best selling point for me is that it has a user replaceable battery, which others don't' have. So with others, when the battery finally dies and can't take any more charges, you have to buy a new tablet. With the Thrive, you can just buy a new battery. I think it has every port you can imagine. I think battery life is pretty much the same as the others. It all depends on what you are doing on it. If you are gaming, the battery will drain much quicker. Touch is very responsive, the screen resolution looks good to me. The back of the Thrive is replaceable as well, so if you don't like the black color, you can buy a different color to swap it out with. So for myself, the only cons of the Thrive are the bulk and weight, but I can live with it considering all it's other specs.
