Should you buy a new iPad or an Android tablet?

Welcome to the 2012 edition of "which tablet should I purchase this year?" Apple's new iPad has the resolution and the 4G connection, not to mention a brand new and improved A5X chip with two CPU cores and four GPU cores - is that impressive enough to sway you away from a brand new Android tablet such as the ASUS Transformer Prime?

This would play into ASUS' plan for a two-tiered system of tablets where one is a premium model and the other is for the slightly more average consumer.
