Love getting all dressed up in a suit, and heading off to corporate meetings ? Well, then make sure you have the right kind of tablet device to go along with you, and an iPad is way too casual, while the BlackBerry PlayBook does have an air of authority, the lack of decent apps have proved to be its Achilles’ Heel.
Asus’ latest Eee Slate B121 business tablet will not suffer from that fate, as it intends to deliver power, portability and security features in a single device, targeting businesses, health care facilities, and other institutions as the market of choice.
The 12.1” Eee Slate B121 features the power, security, and performance that professionals need to get more done. Equipped with an Intel Core i5-470UM processor and a Windows 7 Professional operating system, the slate delivers the processing power and business productivity tools of a notebook PC in a portable tablet form factor. Confidential data is protected with an onboard Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that is ready to protect your data in the event of theft. A bundled Bluetooth keyboard, an integrated Wacom Digitizer stylus, and a multi-touch screen built with durable Corning Gorilla Glass provide users with multiple data input options.
You will not find Android running here, but rather, the Intel Core i5-470UM processor will be there to keep a copy of the Windows 7 Professional operating system chugging along nicely, delivering PC-like performance on-the-go. The clever use of an ultra-low voltage Intel Core i5 processor allows the B121 to remain a mere 0.67” thin, tipping the scales at only 1.16kg.
In addition, the Asus B121 will ship with a 64GB SSD, 4GB RAM, a Bluetooth keyboard, a Wacom Digitizer stylus, a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, and a battery which is touted to run for 4.5 hours.
Other hardware specifications include a 12.1” LED-backlit multi-touch display at 1280 x 800 resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass to make it even more durable. Throw in a couple of USB 2.0 ports, mini HDMI output, a memory card reader (SD/MMC with SDHC/ SDXC) and a combo head-out/ mic-in audio jack, and you’re good to go. Just make sure you haveR12,699.00 to bring this puppy home.
