Asus was making waves at the Consumer Electronic Show in Nevada earlier this month with four tablet PCs and now you can do that same with at least one of them – Asus Eee PC EP121 that runs Windows 7. This since the other three tablets would run Android Honeycomb and the Android version designed specifically for tablet devices is still three month away. However, the sole tablet to run Windows 7 is currently on pre-order status with deliveries slated to begin from January 24 onwards.
And if you are still wondering whether the Eee PC EP121 would make for a smart buy, well the tablet can be the perfect substitute to a netbook PC. Or maybe it packs in even more muscle in the form of an Intel i5-470UM processor having a clock speed of 1.33 GHz coupled to an impressive 4GB of RAM. The tablet includes internal memory that amounts to 64 GB of SSD and packs in several other convenient features such as a mini HDMI out, a built-in 2 megapixel camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. There’s also a flash card reader and a USB port while the screen measures 12.1 inch of 1280 x 800 pixel IPS capacitive touchscreen display.
Also, while the tablet does include some heavy duty stuff, all of that also does get reflected at the weighing scales as well. For the tablet weighs a quite hefty 2.55 pounds, which puts it firmly in the league of laptops and netbook PCs. However, the EP121 lacks seriously in one area – its battery backup time which at 3 hours is surely the EP121s weakest point. And as for its price, the EP121 can be yours for a cool $1099.99.
