The Thrive is supposed to have better battery life. Aside from that, they are pretty much a toss up imho.

I like the Asus for the better feel. Also, I found that it responded better to handwriting software, but either seem pretty good.

They both have unique advantages. It really comes down to what you want to use it for. The Thrive is the clear winner in terms of ports. It offers full HDMI, full USB, and full SD. The Eee Pad has either mini or micro HDMI, micro USB, and micro SD. However, the Eee pad also has the ability to be integrated with a docking station (something you have to purchase separately) which gives it a full keyboard, two USB ports, an SD port, and an extended battery. With the dock, the Eee Pad will definitely have the longer battery life.

Also keep in mind that the Thrive is relatively thick (The Eee Pad is decently thin). Both have a nice finish on the back which is good for gripping. They both run honeycomb as of now; I know that ASUS has stated that they will upgrade, the Eee Pad, but I haven't heard anything from Toshiba.

I've been the market for a netbook/notbook and now I'm leaning towards the Transformer Prime.

For mini/micro-HDMI, I'm assuming there is an adapter or a cable that will have a male full sized HDMI for output to a TV?

The OP has probably already made a choice, but this might help @atomicorange. Here's pretty comprehensive comparative review:
