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...

High weight for a tablet, Relatively short battery life, Very stiff USB ports, Reflective display, An AR coated display surface, smoother USB ports and UMTS

Asus Eee Slate EP121 ( 32GB)


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 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...

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...

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

Given the current tech love affair with the more consumer-oriented tablets, it's good to see Asus offer something for serious tablet users. For that market there's plenty of good decisions at play here, and as a productive device, it's particularly...

First Look: Asus Eee Slate EP121 review


Asus has launched a full blown Windows 7 PC that also just so happens to be a tablet, but can that tablet perform? We tracked it down at Asus' stand at CES to find out.

Fast, impressive specs, well built


Think of the Asus Eee Slate EP121 as a computer without a keyboard rather than a tablet device akin to the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Apple iPad
