Asus Eee Pad Slider Review
Power users will be especially fond of the tablet, well, that’s because its battery life is deliciously ample for even the most hardened users out there. In fact, it easily satisfies our needs as it accomplishes 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.


Conclusion:

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.

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