Asus Eee Slate EP121 review

 

Can this Windows tablet get Microsoft back in the touchscreen game?

Incredible specification ; Windows 7 compatibility ; Excellent 12.1-inch screen ; Wacom digitizer

Woeful battery life ; Weighty companion ; Windows 7 isn't great on tablets ; Not the cheapest option

There are two kinds of tablet in the world.

Asus Eee Slate EP121 first impressions

 

Feels like a Windows 7 desktop

the cachet of being one of a few, but when that unique club is tablets using Windows 7 many will question its viability as a product unless the target buyers are business people.

Asus Eee Slate EP121 review:

 

It may be like a sighting of the Loch Ness Monster (or at least the Jersey Devil), but we might have finally found that elusive Windows touch-screen tablet that doesn't make us want to run screaming back to a traditional clamshell laptop. The Asus Eee...

With a sharp design and a powerful Intel Core i5 CPU, the Asus Eee Slate EP121 is a Windows tablet that doesn't feel like a toy.

Starting at about $1,000, this is a lot more expensive than some other popular tablets, and no matter how good the hardware, Window 7 just isn't made for fingertip input.

Asus has a fresh take on the oft-maligned Windows tablet in the fast-running Eee Slate EP121, a touch-screen slate coupled with its own Bluetooth keyboard.

Review Asus Eee Slate EP121 Tablet/MID

 

High performance tablet. The Eee PC creator's answer to iPad & co. is a tablet with the performance of a subnotebook. In any case, an Intel Core i5 CPU, a 4 GB RAM, a 12" display and Windows 7 rouse interest. We've tested the other things that Asus has...

Asus Eee Slate EP121

 

All the flexibility of Windows in a Tablet ; Includes Art Rage 3 ; Pressure sensitive stylus ; Sound is surprisingly good ; Well-built ; Included case is quite useful

The same old Windows-touch frustrations ; Definite lag between pen stroke and on-screen result ; Rotation is horrifically laggy ; 125% default DPI causes undesirable scaling with some programs

We've had reservations about Windows 7 as a touch OS ever since Microsoft announced it; however, the Eee Slate EP121 goes some way to alleviating those. It'll likely take Windows 8 to go all the way, and by then, it may be too late. Until then, the Eee...

ASUS Eee Slate EP121

 

Superb display with touch and pen, fast Intel Core i5, runs cool., Excellent AFFS display with capacitive multi-touch and Wacom active digitizer and pen. Fast for a tablet with enough horsepower to handle business and art applications. Runs cool and...

3 hour battery life isn't impressive., Battery life isn't stellar

This is one of the best Windows 7 tablets we’ve seen in years, and one of the few slate designs that targets not just artists and verticals but consumers. The $999 to $1,099 price tag might sound high relative to consumer notebooks, but it’s much...

Eee Pad ep121

 

The Asus EEE Pad EP's 12.1-inch frame houses two docking stations – one consists of a Bluetooth keyboard, and the other includes a 500GB hard disk inside and also an additional battery. The second dock gives you the option to turn the tablet into a...

Intel’s CULV processor is known to perform better than the quite lethargic ATOM. As such, we can expect a multi-tasking tablet that allows full use of Windows’ productivity and office suites. - Despite the 12-inch frame, the EP 121 is lighter and...

There was no way of testing the battery life or the features of the device, as the prototype displayed at Computex 2010 didn’t even power up. Thus, we have no way of knowing yet whether the device gets hot after a certain period of use. If it does,...

For those who are tired of toting heavy laptop anywhere, this lightweight, aluminum-shelled $399 entry from Asus may hit the streets in Q1 2011. With or without a keyboard, the Asus EEE Pad EP121 offers solid computing experience. Plug in the keyboard...

4 hours battery life but guess that what you get for so much power in such a small device! And it could do with having some 3G other than that can't fault it!
