The difference in size is negligible. Considering the tablet alone (it wouldn't be fair to include the dock, since the iPad lacks one) it is only 4mm (~2/16ths of an inch) thicker, 30mm (1.2 inches) wider, but 10mm (0.4 inches) less tall.
Also remember that the iPad 2 not only has a smaller 9.7-inch screen, but it also has a 4:3 aspect ratio. If you're going to watch movies, chances are they'll be 16:9 aspect. The Transformer's 10.1-inch 16:10 aspect ratio screen will hence be much closer to the correct ratio, and as a result will need much less letterboxing than the iPad's will.
For a 16:9 movie, the comparison is as follows:
* Transformer -- 8.6 x 5.4 inch display, of which 8.6 x 4.8 inches are used for the movie, the remainder is letterboxed.
* iPad 2 -- 7.8 x 5.8 inch display, of which 7.8 x 4.4 inches are used for the movie, the remainder is letterboxed.
That's 20% more LCD surface area used to view the movie on the Transformer than on the iPad 2. To put that in a way people are more likely to understand, that's ever so slightly more than the difference between a 32-inch HDTV and a 35-inch HDTV.
