Review: Asus Eee Pad Slider

By Dave Bailey 12 Dec 2011
Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101 Verdict: An impressive system from Asus, although perhaps not as easy to use as the Transformer, which has a better keyboard. The Windows netbooks and tablets we have reviewed in the past year have felt underpowered in use, the prime example being Fujitsu's Stylistic Q550. We had no such issues with the Slider, and it didn’t seem to lack performance whatever we did. It also came up with a creditable nine hours of battery life when used lightly, although this would drop with more intensive use, such as video streaming.
Overall Rating: five star
Price: £ 429.99 inc VAT Manufacturer: Asus
Pros: Attached slide-out keyboard offering flexibility as a tablet and netbook; good performance combined with good battery life. Cons: Glossy screen does distractingly reflect ambient light sources; USB 2.0 rather than USB 3.0; flimsy tablet to base unit connection.
