Asus' Eee Slate B121 to hit US this month

Asus' business-oriented tablet
The business version of Asus' EP121 tablet is apparently scheduled to hit shores of the USA as of this month. Compared to the EP121, the device is pretty much identical except for the use of Windows 7 Professional OS.

As far as the specs go, the Eee Slate B121 features 12.1-inch 1280x800 capacitive touch screen with support for both finger and pen input, has a 1.33GHz Core i5-470UM CPU, 4GB of memory and 64GB SSD. It also doesn't lack in the connectivity department as it features 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, as well as USB 2.0 and HDMI ports. The rest of the specs include a 2MP webcam, card reader and a 34Whr battery that should keep the tablet running for up to 4.5 hours.

The device should hit the USA soon and it is currently available for pre-order here with a price set at US $1,499. (Ouch. sub.ed.)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my EP-121!

But this one is kind of odd - hundreds more for just adding Windows 7 Pro 64 over the existing EP 121 that ship with 64-bit Win 7 Home? Heck I can upgrade my EP-121 to Win 7 Pro or even better, Win 8 soon. There has to be something better about this model to justify being several hundred more expensive - maybe a model with a 128GB or 200GB SSD? The battery life seems to be abut the same as the EP-121 - I don't get the hype for this model.

Yeah i just got my EP 121 two weeks ago and am absolutely LOVING it also. Spec-wise it's the same. Are they just calling it "business" and hoping business's take notice and just upping the price because businesses can pay that price? A windows upgrade to pro does not seem worth the money...
