Even if they have enjoyed a significant success and led other manufacturers to start on this niche, touchscreen tablets are still popular only for a small segment of users, mainly for those who want to have fun and enjoy internet access on the go.
The latest one of four Asus Eee Windows tabs to be launched is the Slate EP121 which boasts a 12.1″ 1280 x 800 pixel capacitive touchscreen display with an eletromagnetic panel and stylus for precise input. Powered by either 2GB or 4GB of DDR3 memory, underneath is a dual core Intel i5 CPU.
