The Asus Eee Slate EP121 Windows 7 Tablet: A Tablet You Can Actually Use for Work

E-mail Print PDF

Quick Disclaimer: I don't have the Eee Slate tablet (or any table). This is the one I'm considering getting after much research.

The reason I don't have a tablet is that most the tablets on the market right now would just be toys for me. The iPad is a really cool device, but I don't really need a device with the same functionality as my phone, but bigger. I really like Android devices, but the same applies. The only difference with Android is that I would spend more time learning to develop for the Android tablet (which would require a desktop or a laptop anyway). Yea, the tablets are bigger than phones so it's easier to type and browse the web, but for me they aren't a big enough improvement over my smart phone to justify another device.

Here's my scenario. When I'm mobile and pull out a device, I want to get work done and I don't want that work to be limited to emails with a small keyboard. I want to be able to type long documents in MS Word or a similar word processer, I want to be able to doodle, and I want to be able to write some code (with a real keyboard). The Asus Eee Slate looks like the right device to give me this functionality.

There is a lot of flexibility built into the Eee Slate.

First of all, it runs a full version of Windows 7 64 bit on an Intel i5 processor. As far as applications go you can install anything you would install on your desktop PC as long as you don't run out of hard drive space. Hardware wise this is a PC in a tablet form. In fact, given the Bluetooth, USB ports, and HDMI port you can just plug the system in at your desk and use it as a desktop PC. I've read that the tablet screen can even be used as the secondary monitor. As long as the spec is powerful enough for you, this could be a desktop and laptop replacement.

The screen supports both multi-touch with one or two fingers and stylus input using Wacom technology. The pen is pressure sensitive also so you can get some detail in any sketching or note taking. If you haven't used Windows 7's handwriting recognition, I have to say it's impressive. It can read my writing better than I can. With a program like MS OneNote you could take this tablet to a meeting, record audio, and take notes with the pen or the included keyboard. OneNote will convert your handwritten notes to text for you.

Besides being a tablet, the Asus Eee Slate could be my laptop and my desktop. The only functions it won't cover for me are render intensive applications such as Maya and PC video games.

Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any suggestions?

ssy is getting both likes and dislikes, so
to speak, on Facebook. The best way to know that is by looking at thhe
excellence of tthe services they're offering. So iif you're
thinking of moving or retiring in Belize , or planning a vacation to this tropical heaven,
then there's nothing to contemplate about.

Or it could be shoulder or a dress with shoulder pads.
Planning a wedding is a huge undertaking for only the bride and groom, so get help from
friends and family wherever possible. Use soft fabrics that have a somewhat loose fit for comfort.
