Tablets are changing the way we look at technology today and tomorrow. They are much more portable; make simple tasks like scheduling an appointment or surfing the web for a quick glimpse a breeze and are sleek and affordable. But some things just don’t feel right on a tablet and is a job only worthy of your home computer to handle. With tablets today with new mobile OS platforms and low performance hardware for your everyday needs, they can’t do all the things that you would like them to do on the go.
Meet the Asus Eee Slate. It’s a tablet running Windows 7 with some hardware specs that you would most likely find inside the belly of a monster laptop. Just like any other tablet, it’s sleek and portable.
What separates this from the rest of the tablets is that it features a colossal 12.1” capacitive HD screen with a resolution of 1280×800, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, a Core i5-470UM processor clocked at 1.33GHz with turbo boost up to 1.86GHz, 32GB or 64GB SSD, 2GB or 4GB of memory, Wireless N and Bluetooth, Mini HDMI, 4-in-1 card reader, USB 2.0 port, a 2.0 megapixel webcam, and Flash support.
It’s certainly a tablet that anyone would be proud to own. It has all the joys of a tablet but with the capabilities to do all the hardcore dirty work like running games and resource-leeching programs that you would usually do on a laptop or desktop right in your hands.
However, it does come with a catch. You can pre-order this tablet for a bit under $1000 on Amazon. Is this computer crammed into a tablet really worth the price? And why would they need to build a tablet to such extent, i.e. 64-bit OS, i5 processor.
