If you need a tablet with the functionality of a desktop, check out the Asus Eee Slate EP121. In a world ruled by iPads and Android Honeycomb tablets, the Eee Slate EP121 has chosen to operate on Windows 7. This makes running your Windows Office applications possible on this tablet, especially with the keyboard accessory.
The Asus Eee Slate EP121 sports a 12.1-inch pressure-sensing capacitive LED-backlit HD display with multi-touch built with ultra-thin Gorilla Glass. It also comes with a digitizer pen with Windows 7 pen support.
If you think that heavy apps will run slow on this tablet, think again as it features an Intel Core i5-470UM processor with Intel HD graphics and a 32GB solid state drive. This tablet would have been perfect if it were already running on the tablet-optimized Windows 8.
The Asus Eee Slate EP121 retails for $1,240 at Amazon.
