Asus Eee Slate EP121 – Latest Take On Oft-Maligned Windows Tablet
16 June 2011
Excerpt: 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 boundaries and re-introduces what we can expect from a Win 7.
Conclusion: 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 cheaper than 12” Windows slates that target business users in healthcare, real estate and the like. We love the no-compromise Core i5 ULV CPU that can easily handle Photoshop, Alias Sketch Book, Painter, MS Office and coding...
Pros: 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 quiet. Lovely design and excellent built quality. A folio case and Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard are included. SSD means you can move the Slate around without fear of hard drive damage and it's fast.
Cons: 3 hour battery life isn't impressive., Battery life isn't stellar.
Asus EEE Slate EP121 – the most powerful Windows 7 tablet out there
26 January 2011
Excerpt: While the iPad and Android tablets are all the rage nowadays, the good old Windows operating system is definitely not out of the loop and is actually making a comeback to the tablets and mobile market just as we speak. If you didn’t know, the first tablet PCs were running Windows almost a decade ago, so it’s definitely not something Apple invented – the iPad just brought a tool previously restricted only to corporations and business professionals with money to the...
Summary: We've had reservations about Windows 7 as a touch OS ever since Microsoft announced it; however, the Eee Slate EP121 goes some way to alleviating those. It'll likely take Windows 8 to go all the way, and by then, it may be too late. Until then, the Eee Slate EP121 is the best Windows tablet you can get.
Pros: All the flexibility of Windows in a Tablet, Includes Art Rage 3, Pressure sensitive stylus, Sound is surprisingly good, Well-built, Included case is quite useful
Cons: The same old Windows-touch frustrations, Definite lag between pen stroke and on-screen result, Rotation is horrifically laggy, 125% default DPI causes undesirable scaling with some programs
Summary: В любых бизнес-применениях, где существенно необходимы созданные под Windows приложения, этот планшет выигрывает по сравнению с доступными на рынке устройствами на iOS и Android. Оборотная сторона этих достоинств — внушительные толщина и масса устройства, а также малое время автономной работы.
Pros: Крупный дисплей, высокопроизводительная «начинка», встроенный графический планшет Wacom.
Cons: Большие масса и толщина, маркий глянцевый экран, одноканальное ОЗУ, отсутствие интерфейса USB 3.0 и невозможность работы в сотовых сетях 3G/4G.
