Asus Ep121: An Artist’s Dream Tablet

Things are looking mighty fine for tablets in the year 2011.  Not only are there an abundent amount of Android tablets, there are also new players in the game like RIM with their Playbook and HP WebOS tablets.  Probably the one that is really catching a lot of attention is the one by Asus. Called the EeePad  e121, it’s a 12in slate tablet that runs Windows7.

The specs are truely amazing for such a thin device.  It’s got 12″ (1280×800 resolution) IPS display that is both a capacitive and a Wacom digitizer.  Yeah you heard that right, a Wacom digitizer.  Not only that, but it also has a core I5 processor.  It’s not a Core2Duo nor an Atom processor.  A full blown updated (hopefully a Sandy-Bridge) processor.  Now the only two drawbacks I see are the Intel HD graphics, but hopefully it’s the much newer version that comes out with the new Sandy-Bridge processors.  The other thing is the battery-life.  It’s not the greatest, but it’s in line with any laptop these days.  From intials testings from people around the web that’s got it, it’ last around 3-4 hours.  I’m not really surprised since it runs an Intel core I5 processor, it has 12″ screen with  touch and Wacom pen and it’s only slighty thicker than an iPad.  Did I mention that this tablet is affordable for what you get?  It will retail for $1000.  That’s cheap I tell.  Anyways, take a gander at the video below.

This Is How You Promote Windows 7 In Japan

This is only in Japan things.  Microsoft actually has a mascot in Japan and what better way to attract people by creating Madobe Nanami.  A cute anime character.  It even tells you how to make your computers (don’t forget the screws).  It’s nice to see companies take a different approach sometimes.  Compared to the other company (the fruity one) which doesn’t even market their computers anymore just their phones and music players, Microsoft has a created what could be the next anime character to go big.

And So It Begins

You might have heard of a little OS that will be released soon.   If you’re an avid television viewer, you might start seeing all these commercial regarding Windows 7.  I actually enjoy watching them.  I think they are pretty catchy.  Especially with the little kid.  The kid gets your attention and then bam give you some quotes from reviews (and you actually read them) and some really macho music.  Totally different from the cutesy stuff on the screen.  Now that’s some advertisement.

Also as the time gets closer to the release of the OS, you will see they will start to focus on new features on the OS.  If you’re a computer person then these commercials mean nothing to you, but to those that are let’s say less computer savy then these commercials are for you.
