Windows tablet with notebook hardware

The last of the Asus tablets unveiled at CES 2011 is the Eee Slate. This tablet is much different than the other offerings it unveiled at the show. The Eee Slate runs Windows 7 and that can be a good or a bad thing depending on what you are looking for. The good part about Windows is that the tablet can run all the software you are familiar with already.

The Eee Slate will be offered with either a 32GB or a 64GB SSD for storage, storage is expandable via SDXC cards, and the machine has up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM. It will have WiFi, Bluetooth, a 2MP camera, and dual USB 2.0 ports.

The device will work with just about any peripheral on the market and has a mini-HDMI output for connecting to a big screen. The Slate has a 12.1-inch screen and runs a powerful Core i5 processor. This is more like a notebook lacking a keyboard than your typical tablet.
