    ASUS Eee Slate with WACOM Digitizer!

    Looks like there is finally a tablet device with proper stylis input from the good people at Asus!

    http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/04/a...lay-core-i5-a/

    "....EP121 is all about Windows 7, and oh does it have the guts to run it smoothly -- it's powered by a Core i5-470M processor, packs 2 to 4GB of RAM, and a 64GB SSD. It sure has the internal muscle to compete, but it also has a high-resolution (1280 x 800) 12.1-inch IPS capacitive display with a Wacom digitizer."

    Awesome! Really looking forward to it .

    Thanks for the news dude, I'm just scouring right now to see what level of Wacom tech they have for the digitizer, it better at least be I3 level....I4 would even be acceptable at this point....

    It's probably around 512 levels of pressure - I used to own a toshiba tablet pc with wacom digitizer that had about that many (with the proper wacom pen). Certainly its no Cintiq, but good enough regardless.

    On paper it certainly looks good enough to be a release day buy.

    Tablet PCs except for a Modbook only have 256 levels of pressure. However, whether this new one has more - I don't know. But anything Digitizer you can bet about 256 for tablet pcs.

    I want...now!!! It's darn near a cintiq (minus pressure scale) 12 inch display and 1280 X 800 rez - that is cintiq 12wx size and resolution only portable, although short battery life puts a damper on things. Still, I'm Looking forward to this slate.

    I wish it had like 3 or 4 programmable buttons on the side. I tend to use Ctrl/Shift/Alt, all the time with Photoshop and Zbrush on my Cintiq.

    Interesting device, nice to see they thought of the Ips screen. and it's about 1000$ less than a Motion computing slate.

    I wonder about the battery life though...

    It will be interesting to hear more about it.

    edit: oh, Battery =3,5 hours...

    Thanks for the hands-on links. I wonder is the Intuos4/2nd gen Cintiq stylis will work with it. Last time I had a wacom digitizer tablet pc it needed a special wacom stylis that looked exactly like the Intuos 2 one (even though intuos 2 one didn't work on it!!!!).

    Anyone know if the battery is removable? That'd help to counter the short battery life.
