ASUS Eee Pad takes on iPad with Windows 7

submitted on May 31, 2010 by siggy38 in "Products / Gadgets"

The design is closer to a touch-only notebook and promises a more advanced experience than the iPad. The 12-inch EP121 runs a full Windows 7 OS and uses a CULV Core 2 Duo processor that can provide an Apple-like 10 hours of battery life.
Its multi-touch screen can recognize handwriting, a webcam and USB are built-in, and a keyboard dock turns it into a true computer when at home.
The Eee Pad line won’t ship until early 2011 for prices of $399 for the EP101TC and $499 for the EP121.

    I don't understand the hype on a large pad. Aren't they basically laptops...why not just use a laptop? Maybe if these pads had the ability to fold up and put in my pocket, then I could see them being useful.

      Well, perhaps the touch screen feature and long battery life will attract people to this product over a regular laptop. It can basically be both, with the keyboard dock accessory. Time will tell if the product is a success or not, and if anyone would prefer having the Windows 7 OS.
