With a sharp design and a powerful Intel Core i5 CPU, the Asus Eee Slate EP121 is a Windows tablet that doesn't feel like a toy.
Starting at about $1,000, this is a lot more expensive than some other popular tablets, and no matter how good the hardware, Window 7 just isn't made for fingertip input.
Asus has a fresh take on the oft-maligned Windows tablet in the fast-running Eee Slate EP121, a touch-screen slate coupled with its own Bluetooth keyboard.

At 1st I thought I had gotten a great deal on the slate, but after a weekend of fighting with the thing, I've since changed my tune. Windows 7's interface goes as well with touchscreen as Eskimos in the Sahara. The ergonomic-looking keyboard is painful to type on - the very antithesis of ergonomic. The on-screen keyboard is much better & would be choice if it had haptic feedback or some other tactile validation. I won this thing for about $450 less than retail off the shelf. It was described as refurbished which I think is becoming a euphemism like "pre-owned" cars. The seller was conscientious enough to supply a digitizer pen to replace the non-functioning manufacturer's. I spent the weekend trying everything under the sun and every tutorial under Youtube to get the pressure sensitivity working to no avail. I clearly have a faulty machine in that respect which sucks big, hairy gorilla cojones b/c I bought this mainly to replace my Wacom Bamboo. Nonetheless, I can still draw in Photoshop and model in Zbrush. I the 64Gb hd version. Out the box, 30% was taken up by the OS alone. I performed a full system recovery, installed all my software & I'm down to about 20Gb of free space. I'm a fool for not returning this thing (and for buying used electronics on Ebay, I guess). I feel bad b/c I gave the seller a great review & now I'm raving. I was naive & overly optimistic of my ability to fix what could be fixed & tolerate the rest. Yet, I am keeping this pain in the neck b/c 1) I'm too lazy to bother w/ a return procedure 2) In my frustration, I snapped the pens in two 3) my wife was counting on using my old Toshiba 4) Someone gave me a brand new mini 250G external HD & mini external DVD R/W and 5) It's very portable. Really for ALL it's bad, it will still work well enough for my needs not to mention I paid half the retail price; however, I certainly don't feel like I got away with anything. I ordered a proper stylus w/ side buttons. If I, by some stroke of luck and/or skill, manage to get the pressure sensitivity working, I'll feel like I at least got what I paid for. Meanwhile, I'm taking this one the chin.
On the plus side, it doesn't get hot or noisy even after hours of use in it's folio case. It's faster than my old AMD Qualcore Satellite. It's light & easy to handle, perfect for drawing. Runs streaming video & DVD movies very nicely...audio is decent, handles multi-tasking & peripherals like a powerhouse and boots very quickly almost like an Android tablet.
I'd say it's unnecessarily pricey for those who only desire "content consumption" and the interface is to clunky. It's terrible for typing and those who perform a lot of data entry. It's perfect for digital artists, on-the-go or otherwise. The combination of a full OS and touchscreen is perfect for loading robust software for drawing, designing, 3D modeling & compositing - most of which is better performed w/ pen & tablet. That's my $.02. Hope it helps.
08/29/2012 - Well, it's going on day six since I've had my Asus Slate and a lot has changed including my attitude somewhat. After being totally frustrated with the interface and disappointed about the lack of pressure sensitivity AND spending 3 sleepless nights attempting to remedy these issues, I found my thrill. INSTALL Windows 8!!! It's awesome on this machine. And after replacing the pen, even the sensitivity works!

If you are looking for a toy or web-browsing device, go get iPad or Android tablets. But boy if you are looking for a Work and Play device, this is the device for you. No shortcuts on power and usability. It is the same windows running on your desktop. Performance Index puts most desktops to shame. 4Gb of Memory etc etc etc.
Tell me on which tablet you can run full server in VirtualPC while you have Visual Studo open with code and running youtube HD video at the foreground while you keep an eye on your Stock ticker. Yes all at the same time with ASUS EP121 4Gb! Eat the dust iPad.
Yes, the battery lasts just 3+ Hrs, and so what, the only time I am outside of a power socket for more than 2 hrs is when I am in a meeting. The tablet has never died on me through a meeting.
Did I tell you the combination of OneNote and this tablet blows them away in a meeting. If you are a student, or technical, need to regularly draw Schematics and the likes, you will know the combination of OneNote and this tablet is a winner.
I know you've heard them say Windows7 is not made for touch. That is bull. The device comes customized for touch (Large letter, chrome) with which you can't miss. I decided to return the letter size to normal to give me more screen estate, even with that I could still easily touch Windows. This is the tablet MS used to demo Windows8, I am sure it will come to its rights when Win8 is released. Waiting for Windows8 on this beast, to put all haters to shame.
An excellent tool work, especially since I needed Windows 7 on a small laptop.
Works Fast, have all I need in it, and very portable.
It's not light weight as the usual Tablets, but it is more powerful then them.
You will have to get use to write in the Virtual Keyboard, But the Bluetooth Keyboard is excellent. Though if I want to write a long document, I still prefer writing it on my Desktop Computer: When you use the Bluetooth Keyboard, the unit is a bit too far from you, and it's not that comfortable.
Power Save options is good, it saves battery life, but the units works fast enough.
In conclusion it's a good value for money product - very comfortable, powerful and answers all my need (since Android Tablet or ipad does not).
But the main thing that I really don't understand is why Asus didn't build an Internal 3G Modem in the unit - it is a must.
I miss that the most in the Computer. It is far more Comfortable then the usb Modem that I use today.
Great tablet: the universal operating system allows you to keep to yourself any neobhrodimoe software.
Dimensions, weight and battery life - are acceptable.
Ease of control with your finger or a pen - above all pohvaal. It is convenient to use the applied in the scope of the keyboard.
I am very pleased that the provider is all very well and without errors all carried out - I got a brand new tablet and well packed for shipping.
Великолепный планшет: универсальная операционная система позволяет держать при себе любое необхродимое программное обеспечение.
Размеры, масса и время работы батарей - приемлемы.
Удобство управления пальцем или пером - выше всяких похваал. Удобно применение прикладываемой в комплект клавиатуры.
Я очень рад, что поставщик все очень четко и без погрешностей все выполнил - я получил планшет совершенно новый и отлично упакованный для транспортировки.
