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 Slate EP121 (64GB)


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.

Asus Eee Slate EP121 – Latest Take On Oft-Maligned Windows Tablet


There hasn't been many of the Windows touch-screen laptop that hasn't made us run back to the more conventional clamshell laptop, but thankfully, that is not the case with the Asus Eee Slate EP121. This all new Windows touch-screen tablet stretches its...

Asus Slate more of a laptop masquerading as a tablet


At a glance, the Eee Slate EP121 is a big iPad that runs Windows 7. That's about where the similarities end, though.

I’m going to expand on that, but this little summary does a good job of succinctly telling the story of Asus’ new tablet. It’s all most people need to know in order to understand that this portable PC probably isn't for them. For the minority...

ASUS Eee Slate EP121


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.

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...

"Best windows tablet to date."


Great computer. Is the same thing as the new B121 model. I recommend it to anyone & everyone.

Includes Bluetooth keyboard, pen, case. Hard screen is easy to write on. Recognizes pen and finger input automatically, scroll with finger automatically.

Sharp movements loosen the battery cable and it won't turn on or charge. You can either send it back and they will fix it, send it back or pop the back off and just unplug/replug the battery. I suggest the second option.

"looks slick, but not recommend"


more portable than laptop, good for note taking at a meeting, good for ebooks

relatively heavy, often freeze screens, too short battery life

"Slick but buggy, forget about Asus customer support!"


The product just came with too many defects for me to be comfortable with a $1200 purchase price. When I tried Asus customer service, they were not helpful, frankly, they were non-existent! (Go and try their tablet support chat function for yourself,...

1) Full windows functionality in a portable, easy to see tablet, 2) Fast enough 3)Seamless wifi and bluetooth, 4)The display is top-shelf,5) Built in gyro and lock for portrait and landscape views. 6) great screen!

1)defective analogue sound output jack or the software 2)defective stylus bin 3) Screen odd dimension-carried hidden user interface issues(frustratingly, when adjusting Flash settings)4)Battery life only about 3 hrs.5)Asus product support very poor.
