Summary: I got this for use at college after getting tired of carrying my laptop around and having to get it out open it turn on off and so on when you have 4-6 classes a day that gets tiresome.
Pros: Light maybe not TF light but i prefer heft to things lets me know i'm holding something, screen is very responsive and while it cant go all out and multi task like my laptop i can still have plenty of stuff running at once and not see performance drops ex: pandora, web surfing (at least 7-8 tabs ...
Cons: I have called ASUS and they have confirmed that They do not currently have plans for releasing an updated version of the slider. *grumbles* (though they will continue to support it) Also this has been said already the speaker is lacking so just don't use it in crowded areas, sounds great when i'm...
Summary: Two essential apps for work: 1) RepliGo PDF reader 2) Documents To Go Polaris is good for PowerPoint, but it can be quirky and unstable when editing and writing notes. Doc2Go is more reliable for .doc files. This is the first touch device I have owned.
Pros: -The only tablet on the market with every feature I need -Used as a media device for teaching -Can do mini-HDMI to VGA w/ ASUS cable (not included). -Full size USB 2.0 -Finally able to work in bed reading/writing in PDF -Shed 8lbs off my shoulder (fits Case Logic VNA-210) -Makes life in grad scho...
Cons: -Polaris will not read .doc files vertically -LED backlight bleed through -Will not play embedded movies in PowerPoint -Android OS can be obnoxious, especially when writing/editing or using the mobile side of websites -Files will not always display through a USB link to a PC The tablet has to be ...
Summary: I read a lot of reviews on this thing before buying one for the girlfriend and I was a little leery about taking the plunge. Mainly because of what people said about it having wireless and GPS issues.
Pros: Fast, compact, great battery life, lots of apps. The sliding keyboard is a must if you plan on doing more than just posting on Facebook.
Cons: Android OS. Very limited support for various media types. Decent sound, but could have been better. But still, it has better speakers than a lot of laptops I've come across. Some games are buggy.
Summary: Put these in my mother in laws computer which only had 1gb from the factory because i couldn't deal will the excruciating delays from switching programs. Easy installation like all DDR sdram. Great upgrade if you want to improve the performance and longevity of your older computer.
Pros: Good memory volume and good speed for older computers needing a boost of life
Pros: This thing, like all Asus products ROCKS! Fast, easy to use, great because it fits in my portfolio with all my text books and other books loaded on it, so long BACKPACK, backache and heavy loads. Lots of apps installed, loaded more myself, great for taking notes in class, wifi works flawlessly! Y...
Summary: I don't know why other reviewer said it doesn't play Netflix or that you can't turn it off while charging because both are UNTRUE. I like this tablet a lot and I use it everyday. No real problems, I just wish it was louder.
Pros: Built in keyboard, tethers to iphone without modifying anything, works well, screen looks great, PLAYS NETFLIX FINE.
Cons: Sound isn't very loud unless you use speakers or headphones
Summary: Don't waste anymore time looking. This is as good as you're going to get for the money
Pros: Up and running in less than 10-minutes out of the box, excellent graphic quality, gets around the internet quickly and easily. The built in keyboard is surprisingly easy to use for its size and, if you don't want to use it, the touch screen does a fine job. Asus did a good job on this one. USB po...
Cons: The speakers are almost a waste but that's not a major issue. Other than that no real cons.
Pros: I'm looking for opinions on the sound quality. While it says SRS 3D sound, specs say it only has 1 speaker - does it then merely produce a simulated stereo effect from a mono speaker? I have an Iconia W500 and it has truly awesome stereo but, with the keyboard dock, it's a lot to carry around. Al...
