Tablets
« on: August 19, 2012, 12:50:21 AM »
So I bought a tablet for school.  The ASUS Transformer Prime 201.  I call it Optimus  ;D



It is a nice tablet, better than the iPad IMHO as it comes with a keyboard docking station that also has a battery in it.  So when it is plugged into the docking station you get about 18 hours of battery.  Despite all the reviews of defective Wii Fi and GPS mine works fine.  It has a mini SD card in the tablet, a normal SD Card in the docking station and a USB port in the docking station.

My biggest problem is that it is an Android.  I really wanted something that could run Microsoft Word on it.  Mainly for OneNote.  There is a OneNote App but it is nowhere near as good as the program.  But at least I can view the notes I have made.

 It comes with a Note Taking App and a program to use MS Word, Power Point and Excel.  Not as many APPS as an Apple but hopefully that will change.


I had wanted the ASUS B121 but at £900, 4 hour battery life and the weight of it I had to say no.  However it is more of a Laptop in power and function then a tablet.

I'm waiting for the new windows tablets that are coming out, one runs a full version of Win 8.

That one was a close call though, glad you enjoy it.

Cheers!

I'd like one of the new Windows Tablets but they have not released any information on them so maybe in a year or two.

Some rumours say they are going to be way over priced with the second version being more like a laptop being over $900.  Forget that.

Well in the meantime, I picked up an Arnova 7 G3 tablet for $100. We'll see how that goes. Runs Android ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich), 1 gB RAM, 4 gB memory and takes 32 gB microSD. should make for a good carrying reader/reference book.

Cheers!
