Summary: I have had my B121 now for about 2 months and I have used it quite often. I am an IT professional (network engineer) and I love playing with new toys like this. First of all, I know these came with Windows 7 but there is really no need to leave Windows 7 on it. Windows 8.1 is out and I immediately put Windows 8.1 Pro on it after I received it.
Summary: We develop mission critical automation software for radio broadcasting and do many trade shows. Used the Asus Eee Slate - Bought it in April 2012 originally with Win8 worked almost perfect with most apps. then 8.1 Windows in 2014 upgrade corrected all small issues - its a great little Tablet.
Summary: I bought refurbished one last month to Arsenal PC, and I write a very bad review because PC did not work. I had the previous model and work very well until the fan started to make noises (regular issue in these tablets), and the screen was not working properly (back light did not work so screen was very dark, almost impossible to read). Then I bought new version last mont from Arsenal and in this one had the screen issue that I had in the previous model.
Summary: Right up front, I'm 63 (that says I'm not computer literate). It does fine. Sometimes the screen is to sensitive. I am sure my programs that are on it have biased me a little. I guess I am wishing that it was for fun, it's not, it's for work so...
Pros: Most of the features of a laptop. Included bluetooth keyboard allows for faster entry. No problems connecting. Only had it one day, so will have to evaluate it further.
Cons: 1. No comprehensive user's manual. 2. Looks like there's a webcam, but can't find it. 3. Tech support costs $38 min. For what this cost, t/s should be included...at least for the first year. 4. No videos explaining the interface with Windows 7.

Summary: I've had my tablet for about two months. It is exactly what I needed and I am glad I didn't wait on a Windows 8 product. I was pleased with the extra nips for the pen digitizer, folio, and the Bluetooth keyboard. The folio would have been much better if it had included a pocket. Because of the missing pocket, I plan to upgrade my folio by making my own (Yea for Pinterest!) as other folio options for this particular device are sorely lacking.
Summary: I'm typing this using the bluetooth keyboard of my eSlate B121. COOL FACTOR: This machine causes envy everywhere I go because I casually point out that it does everything an iPad does but also has SD and USB and runs office and powerpoint. People literally notice me taking notes with the stylus and ask me "is that some new iPad?" "No," I say "its a slate computer from ASUS." No one knows who ASUS is but they write down the name after I walk them through the features.
Summary: Okay (I am writing this on the slate), the first thing that people need to get is that the EEE slate is NOT an iPad killer. Why? Because there is no real "apples to apples" comparison. The slate isn't trying to be an iPad. the iPad, nor the slate is an e-reader either. E-readers are simply another class of device. The slate is a computer. A Wintel (Windows Intel) computer. it is not an internet device.
