Asus Eee Pad Slider Review
one solid day of normal usage on a full charge. By the end of the night, it’s left at the 40% mark, which is good enough to get us through most of our second day of usage.
Here’s the deal. If you yearn to minimize what you carry along on a daily basis, the Asus Eee Pad Slider is the perfect solution as it already incorporates a physical keyboard – even if it’s on the cramped side. Not to mention, it’s also the only Android tablet on the market to sport this form factor.
Initially, its $479.99 cost seems mightily appealing considering there’s no additional spending required for a keyboard, but eventually its compromises are blatantly sticking out like a sore thumb to justify things. However, we simply ache in knowing that an extra $200 will nab you the killer spec’d Asus Transformer Prime – with its add-on keyboard dock. A slightly more affordable option (than the Prime) is also found with the original Transformer. If purchased with the keyboard dock, it will be just a tad pricier than the Slider.

Hmmm nice try. Maybe the next gen will be slimmer

If i want a keyboard tablet i would rather use a laptop, the hole point of tablet is it slimness.

Drop the price 150 dollars and maybe but just spend the extra to get the prime.
