a great idea, if it had only worked.........................
27 October 2013
Summary: this seemed like such a good idea, a full size tablet running the full windows 7 operating system. i purchased this to use as my work computer, but it froze up on my constantly. if it would have just worked, i have no doubt i would still be using it to this day. when i called asus tech support, their only solution was for me to remove & reload the entire operating system. they couldn't care less, and i happily let them have it back as a nice paperweight for their desk.
Summary: When I first got the ASUS slate to replace my old beat-up Toshiba Portege--I was SO excited. A year and some change later, not so much. For the past 6 months the slate began overheating within an hour of use and/or shutting down at random times, even while charging. I sent it back to ASUS for repair when it shut itself off and could not be turned on or off.
Summary: I bought this unit as a factory fresh refurb. This product appeared to have everything I wanted in a tablet, USB ports, SD card slot, ability to boot different OS, LOUD obnoxious fan which vibrates more than my cell phone on silent. It would still be an acceptable device except for the noisy failing fan. Out of the box, the pressure sensitive stylus does not work. In order to get pressure sensitivity you need to search for and load the wacom drivers.
