Asustek’s Windows 7-based Eee Slate EP121, which went up for pre-order in early January, briefly became available on
earlier today before going out of stock. According to Liliputing’s Brad Linder, his Amazon Affiliate records confirm that the EP121 tablets ordered by some of his readers have
already been shipped
. Prices are $999 and $1099 for the 32GB and 64GB SKUs, respectively.
Asus is marketing the Eee Slate EP121 as the “world’s most powerful tablet device.” Indeed, the 12.1-inch Windows7 tablet does pack a serious punch with its laptop-esque specs: a dual-core Core i5-470UM processor clocked at 1.33GHz, up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 32GB or 64GB solid-state storage. Its four-cell battery is said to last 4.5 hours on a single charge, with continuous 1080p video payback reducing that number to 2.4 hours.
