I don't use a stylus with my Transformer, but writing with my fingertip the handwriting seems to work at least as well as on my MP2000U. The actual drawing of the line is a bit 'chunkier' - I don't know how else to describe it - but the lines follow my finger accurately, and the HWR picks up the letters quickly.

I have the screen refresh rate set to 'medium'. I could probably turn it up (the Transformer is a quad-core 1.6 GHz) and smooth it out, but I never saw a reason to.

Worth noting: Einstein for Android does NOT work with the hardware keyboard on my Asus.

Also note that Einstein drains the tablet's battery fairly quickly. It's a pretty demanding program to run.
