INFO: Asus Eee Slate EP121: ‘Desktop’ Tablet PC

At CES 2011, Asus announced the Asus Eee Slate EP121, a Tablet PC that is essentially a Windows desktop replacement.image

So powerful yet so thin, the EP121 has all the horsepower of a traditional production laptop or even desktop, while in the portable form factor of an iPad.  Here’s the stats:

  • Intel Dual Core i5-470um Processor 1.33Ghz
  • 4GB/2GB DDR3 RAM, 64/32GB SSD ($999/$1099)
  • 12.1” Capacitive Multitouch Display
  • Wacom Screen Digitizer & dockable stylus & palm rejection technology
  • 2Mp front-facing Webcam
  • 2 USB 2.0 ports
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • SDFlash slot
  • 36WH (3-cell) 3.5hr battery
  • Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard

An impressive workhorse machine, the EP121 provides essentially, 100% compatibility with traditional Windows-based business applications such as EPM, ERP, and CRM tools, Outlook / Word / Excel / Powerpoint / OneNote, and Internet/Intranet sites – that may or may not include Adobe Flash.
