  1. After releasing several teaser shots of its new tablets, Asus has properly greeted the devices with a press release. The company has announced four new slates that offer different feature sets depending on your needs: the Eee Pad Slider, Eee Pad Transformer, Eee Pad MeMO, and Eee Slate EP121. All will be on display during CES from January 6-8 between 9:30AM and 6:00PM at The Venetian, San Polo Ballroom - 3501A.

    Nice! This looks about right! Thank you Asus for putting a nice display on these! No poor viewing angle TN panels for me, nu-uh.

    I'm really interested in the Windows based one... but I wish it had that slide-out keyboard. Price is a bit high but those specs are also high, so sounds like it will beat the HP Slate 500 into the dirt.

    If only you could have the option of putting Windows 7 on the lower-spec tablets. Either way, i'm very interested in these! I hope they make it to stores so I can get my hands on them before making a decision...

    I think they didn't go with Windows 7 on the lower end tablets due to them not being powerful enough to take advantage of it.

    But an 2.53ghz i5 dual core is more than enough for the high end model.

    However, for $1000, I'd rather build an i7 desktop instead lol

    a Core-i5 in a tablet? Now that grabs my attention! how do they cool it? or how hot does this thing get in your hands? sounds like something I would buy if it was a little cheaper, although nice to see some decent displays on a tablet for once as well.

    I agree, but this is a great powerful alternative to anybody already willing to shell $749 for a high end iPad.
     
  12. Looks very nice with the I5. I wonder if it will have a decent stylus that we can write notes and fine lines. The HP's stylus is not a great writing experience. I also am very attached to my 3G capabilities on my ipad which gives me true mobile data.
