mspy review

The Asus Eee Slate EP121 is not designed to take on the iPad. It’s important to get that out of the way immediately, because it’s an unfair comparison made by pretty much everyone we've shown it to.


Another thing that is important to get out of the way immediately... I never compared the Asus Ep121 to the Ipad in my review. There is no need to even mention a comparison because in the world of electronic forms, the Ipad performs poorly and the Asus Ep121 is a pretty good machine.

Samsung Galaxy Smartphone

With a sharp design and a powerful Intel processor, the Asus Eee Slate EP121 is a Windows tablet that doesn't feel like a toy.

Unfortunately it’s very expensive maybe a bit too expensive even if the hardware is good also Windows 7 isn’t made for fingertip input.

I guess we have to wait for Windows 8.


The latest comment on the Asus machine shows the consumer's trends in tablet thinking. Everyone still wants to compare these Windows tablets to touch-only smartphones and Android tablets. We do not. If you truly want to fill out an e-form like you would do on paper, a smartphone or touch tablet is about the slowest, clunkiest way to do it. You need a pen-enabled Windows tablet. And it's odd that this user would say the Asus is TOO expensive as we only test the cheap tablets under $1500. Many are still double that in price. On a final note, while we still think the Asus is a fine machine, we have to admit that the Samsung XE700 is both better and cheaper.


I want to get this tablet but I`m little worried about the battery life because the battery lasts 2-3 hours. It will be recharged 2,3 times a day and that can`t be good for the battery (talking from my experience with laptops).
