ASUS Eee Slate B121

 

The ASUS Eee Slate EP121 has some inconvenient design flaws that will be most apparent to those who prefer to use a physical keyboard with their tablet PCs. However, if you plan to use the device mainly in tablet mode, you'll enjoy the speed and...

This tablet PC has a powerful and fast Intel Core CPU and a solid-state hard drive

The Bluetooth keyboard doesn't have a trackpad or mouse

It's a good option for on-the-go users who plan to use it primarily in tablet mode.

Utterly Disappointed

 

One other thought: The battery life initially advertised with this really was optimistic. Fortunately, we have a power convertor to allow us to use this in the car without worrying about battery life.

Windows 7 capability in a slate form. Overall, if this had worked reliably, it would have been a GREAT product. When it worked, it worked as intended, allowing us to get work done while traveling

This device has been unreliable from the start. Initial setup was tedious. It took many hours to get all of the Windows updates installed. But the bigger problem is that for the past couple of weeks (just when we need it most as school is restarting)...

Great idea - but not this version

 

Conceptually - love this. Unfortunately - the stylus was unusable - it wrote from over an inch above the surface and left a trailing line everywhere you didn't write. Had difficulty seeing targets to click on - everything was tiny - in spite of...

The Best Tablet Out There

 

1st The price is a little high. That's my only complaint. Right out of the box I was amazed. I've had other windows tablets and none of them worked like a normal PC except this one. I couldn't believe the processing speed. Anything I plugged into the...

finally a USEFUL tablet

 

I purchased two of these for work over the iPAD and Transformer. You simply cannot beat FULL Windows in tablet form for productivity. No need to find an "app" for anything, this is like your work desktop machine only in your lap. I work with Oracle,...

The screen/glass is beautiful on the Slate ; Full OS, load anything you want on it...no need to find an "app ; Being a full OS, you can use the two USB ports for any USB device you like...drag n drop thumbdrives, ext hard drives, ext cd drives, ext...

NOT really cons ; I cant really say battery life is a "con"...just more of an acceptable trade off. I get around 4 hours of use, 3 if I'm working it hard. Sure battery life could be better and its not the 10+ hours of smaller Android/iPad tablets, but...

Not mad...just disappointed

 

I used to be a HUGE Asus fanboy, but their support has gone in the toilet. I've contacted them 3 times (which could either indicate quality issues or simply a lemon). Once they told me I had to ship back my entire laptop for a power supply that went...

Nice screen, Great i5 processor

One memory slot, Poor quality Power Supply and Keyboard, Horrific support

Perfect Slate

 

I get 4hrs or more use with wifi and bluetooth on just surfing web. 2-2.5hrs working it hard, and watching youtube isn't working it hard. I can use my Motorola Atrix 4G as a mouse. This makes a great "companion" pc to your desktop when you are home. if...

A FULL computer in a Slate form factor. Finally, a digital notepad. Been waiting 10yrs for that. Onenote rocks on this! I can run anything i want on this including virtual machines

I just couldn't remove an egg for battery considering it's size and power

So much promise BUT.....

 

We bought five (5) of these units. Beautiful to look at and fast BUT:1. Blue screen of death on all FIVE units with a Microsoft 5000 BT mouse. Updated drivers - no change. ASUS technical support has not replied to our requests for help in SEVEN days.2....
