Better hope it never stops working.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 December 2015
  • Summary: I have had a bad experience with ASUS customer Support. I have a very expensive Asus Tablet that is two years old and out of warranty and that has a failed Motherboard. The tablet is in perfect condition and never been abused, it is just a bad Asus component.

Utterly Disappointed

David M., Newegg
14 August 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: 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) it has become unusable. The screen backlight g...

finally a USEFUL tablet

Douglas M., Newegg
5 August 2012
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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 mouse/keyboard... Touch response is perfect (for ...
  • Cons: --- 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 its not bad for what it does. Has a min...

Magnificent Beast

Crystal B., Newegg
30 June 2012
  • Summary: Running Windows 8 Release Preview on this thing, and it's great. Also means that I can't speak for how the touch features work in Windows 7, and I've yet to get the hardware buttons (Aero button, volume rocker, onscreen keyboard button) to work (yet).
  • Pros: -With the i5, 4GB RAM & SSD, this thing is fast as lightning. No waiting for programs to open with this monster. Boots and reboots in literally seconds. -Screen is beautiful and tough as nails. So bright... So vivid. Extremely responsive. -Extremely lightweight. With this size of this baby, I was...
  • Cons: Can't think of any actual major cons for this thing. If you are a business professional, you might bemoan its lack of an internal 3G modem, but I'm not so I don't care. The door on the pen garage and the covers on the USB ports feel a little bit flimsy, but eh. The back is plastic and feels a lit...

Thanks to all of the other 5* reviewers...

Chris Jung, Amazon

  • Summary: I just wanted to say "Thank You" to the other reviewers...your reviews helped me make the decision to buy this tablet PC...and I'm glad I did! While I already own an iPad (1st generation), this PC made me realize that not all tablet PCs are created equal.

Great Job

  • Summary: Love this tablet. It was excellent to begin with. Mine actually came installed with Windows 7 Ultimate not Business. I was happy about that. I am now dual booting Windows 7 and Windows 8. I love this tablet even more with Windows 8. It's over all excellent.

Nice tablet for those who want to run a "real" os

anonymous, Rakuten
14 June 2012
  • Summary: As an upgrade from an ipad2, I'm quite pleased. The asus eee slate allows me to run the full (ultimate 64-bit) version of windows and all my windows program, or install the os of my choice. It boots very quickly. It resumes almost instantly from sleep state.

Not mad...just disappointed

Anthony R., Newegg
12 June 2012
  • Summary: 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 bad (and confirmed with a known working one).
  • Pros: Nice screen, Great i5 processor.
  • Cons: One memory slot, Poor quality Power Supply and Keyboard, Horrific support.

  • Summary: There are some fantastic and incredibly thorough reviews written by other folks already--as of this writing there are fewer than 20 Amazon product reviews for the B121, so please do yourself a favor and read them all.

Perfect Slate

Anonymous, Newegg
29 March 2012
  • Summary: 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 you are even thinking of getting this.. get it!
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: I just couldn't remove an egg for battery considering it's size and power.
