Summary: I bought my ASUS EEE Slate one year ago. One of my colleagues had it and loved it. I also love the touch and pen feature. It's the best in the industry, imo. My work is very meeting extensive and very mobile.
Summary: have buyer's remorse and have since l bought this thing. Save some money and buy an iPad unless you're an artist. This may be a good device if that is your intended use.
Pros: It Runs at a good clip and has reasonable horsepower. The build quality is sturdy. Windows has its pluses
Cons: Simply put, windows is not ready for a touch device. l plan to upgrade to wins when possible. I'm no fan of apple, but live found the iPad to be much more Usable. Simply writing this review, as short as it is is proving to be a chore on this device.
Summary: I am a college student, was psyched when I found out about the news of the relase of this product. Many people gave good reviews so far, but I am guessing that they have higher sensibilities in using the device or they haven't used yet enough.
Summary: Possible RMA, let's see how things go with tech support. The pen is pretty chintzy too. I wonder if I can use a wacom pen. Since it's touch screen, is there any difference between the pen and the finger? just point size? If that's so, maybe I'll try a different stylus for weight, texture and feel.
Pros: This is the only tablet out there that has a real OS that you can load PS onto. I had a great toshiba PC tablet for about 4 years but it was really giving up the ghost and time to get a new screen and such. The display is amazing. 64 gb ssd is nice, boots up faster than anything I've seen but fil...
Cons: Keyboard died after 2 weeks and some of the keys are broken and fallen off. I was just about to call ASUS for tech support and am very disappointed to read other posts that say they won't warranty it. What the hell is up with that huh? Is this not their product? I hope Newegg can help. Also, the ...
Cons: This Unit was ordered withe the sole purpose to be used to illustrate children's books. I installed Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I began to use Illustrator and the Pen digitizer began "vectoring out" this is the process in which the computer draws random straight lines from the ending p...
Summary: Newegg is great as normal, their product support team did the best they could. Options include RMA for store credit or $20 store credit to apply to a new keyboard.
Pros: Great touchscreen Convenient size FAST 3 Second return from Sleep I am very pleased with the tablet itself.
Cons: ASUS tech support! The keyboard (which is a Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Keyboard 6000) was DOA. ASUS will NOT fix/replace the keyboard. I also called Microsoft, but since it is an OEM product (sold by ASUS) they will not support it either! This is making me seriously question buying anything from ...
Great portable Windows machine, until you need it fixed

Summary: I've had this for a couple days now. I loaded Microsoft Office 2010, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 on it without a hitch. I can use it to show people code, and even write code with the included bluetooth keyboard.
Summary: I loved the idea of this but was then very dissapointed after a couple of weeks as i still had to use the keyboard due to the handwritting recognition being useless. The handwritting recognition was the main reason i choose this slate as i thought it would come in very useful when i started by...
Two faulty products returned; third one frustrating

22 July 2011
Summary: My thanks to Amazon for their returns and exchange service. I purchased this product as my laptop is dying, I also purchased an additional bluetooth mouse, an external CD/DVD writer, etc as these are not included with the standard product and are needed if you want to use it for work.
