Review Asus Eee Slate EP121 Tablet/MID

 

High performance tablet. The Eee PC creator's answer to iPad & co

Display: bright, high contrast, viewing angle stable; High resolution; USB 2.0; System performance; Compatibility; Viable supplies; Finger and stylus inputting; Stable case

High weight for a tablet; Relatively short battery life; Very stiff USB ports; Reflective display

It usually is at an advantage in view of mobility. The combination of display size, display quality and system performance can't yet be supplied by any other manufacturer.

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

 

Tablets took ASUS by surprise this year. The company revealed its two models, the Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider, back at CES 2011 in January, and went on to see the Transformer become a sell-out success. The Slider SL101, meanwhile, failed to...

On paper, the ASUS Eee Pad Slider makes sense. All the instant-on flexibility of a tablet, with the convenience of a keyboard. Problem is, the biggest competition comes from under ASUS’ own roof, in the shape of the Eee Pad Transformer. That has a...

ASUS Eee Pad Slider Review

 

I understand the appeal of tablets. Regardless of OS, they all provide a far more intimate experience when browsing the web and reading emails. I genuinely prefer doing both of those things on a tablet than on a notebook or desktop. Then there are the...

Asus Eee Pad Slider review

 

Of all the Honeycomb tablet manufacturers, Asus has been one of, if not the most successful. In May and April, the company sold 500,000 Eee Pad Transformers, with another 300,000 in June. So, why...

Bright, high-quality IPS display ; Sliding mechanism is rigid ; Innovative form factor with keyboard ; Keyboard is well laid out

Thick and heavy ; Keyboard is overly plasticy ; Very thick screen bezel ; Angle of the screen can’t be adjusted beyond 45 degrees in keyboard mode

When you can get a Transformer with a better keyboard, a screen that can be angled to your liking, and more than two times the battery life for just $71 more, it seems like a no-brainer

ASUS Eee PC 4G XP

 

It has a few flaws, but ASUS' newest mini-notebook delivers the familiarity of Windows and good performance at a very low price.

Solid performance ; Bright display ; Fast boot times

Limited storage ; Windows sizing problems

The Linux-powered ASUS Eee PC 4G starts faster and offers a friendlier interface, but it’s still a Linux machine, which means you’re limited in terms of which programs you can run. The Eee PC 4G XP offers the familiarity of Windows at an unbeatable...

Asus Eee PC Review Part 2: Budget Subnotebook Perfection

 

Asus announced the Eee PC series of budget ultraportable notebooks (subnotebooks) in 2007 and the Eee PC has quickly become one of the most popular notebooks on the market. Every laptop manufacturer from Acer to Everex is racing to bring their own...

Back in October of 2007 we gave the Eee PC 4G the Editors Choice Award. Would we do the same today? Yes, without hesitation. The truth is you can get a much more powerful laptop for the same amount of money if you’re willing do deal with a larger...

Review: Asus Eee PC 4G

 

At two pounds flat, the Asus Eee PC is the smallest ultra-cheap PC on the market, yet it's arguably the most capable of the bunch....

The first netbook you won’t be embarrassed to buy, and for a mere 0. Available in multiple colors. Serious hackers can go nuts and add extra apps and even install Windows or other Linux distributions. 4GB solid-state drive means no crashes when you...

Two hours and 20 minutes of battery life disappoints considering the slimmed-down specs. Only 1.3GB free storage space available straight out of the box. Stiff (and tiny) mouse buttons

ASUS EeePC 4G

 

Despite its minor annoyances, the ASUS EeePC 4G a 2-pound ultraportable is sleek, versatile, and well worth the $400.

Amazing bargain. Designed like a high-end laptop. Integrated webcam. Three USB ports. Good speakers. Xandros Linux is speedy and solid. Comprehensive selection of software

Only 4GB of storage. Not powerful enough to stream audio and video from an external optical drive. Cramped keyboard

Asus Eee PC 4G Review

 

The Asus Eee PC 701 4G is the new affordable ultraportable notebook that's bound to be on many consumers' Christmas wish lists this year. Retailing for $399 or less, the Eee PC isn't exactly a workhorse, but it will do just about every basic task you'd...

In the end, the Eee PC is the single most impressive notebook we’ve seen priced below $400. The technical specs might look sub par, but the usability and overall performance of the Eee PC rivals notebooks costing several thousand dollars more. Granted,...
