I'm a former TF101 owner ... just killed it last week ... spilled chocolate milk on it .. LOL. Not a good day. Now I have a useless keyboard for it.
I am not having the same problems that you seem to have experienced. My TF's build is solid, and if you try and keep it dry, I think all will be well. Underpowered is a bit of a vague term, compared to my i7 it sure is underpowered, compared to other tablets, it seems pretty standard in the CPU/GPU department. My short experience with the device is that it streams just fine, and plays off the device just fine. If anything, the software needs to mature a bit more, that's all. I an trying VPlayer, and I did try Diceplayer as well... both handled my mkv files fine (encoded h.294 and aac).

Each person's experience with a device is differnt though, so I don't discount yours.
