ASUS Eee tablet range: First look video

ASUS Eee Slate EP121

The educational technology trade fair, BETT, is not where you might expect the newest of the tablets to come out on show.

However, we managed to track down the latests ASUS tablets, fresh from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and at their first showing in the UK.

ASUS Eee Slate EP121

The Eee Slate EP121 was described by the chairman of ASUS as "the most powerful tablet in the world" at its launch at CES in Las Vegas last week.

The device does boast pretty impressive specifications for a slate, running Microsoft's Windows 7 rather than a mobile OS and an Intel Core i5-470UM processor, and has an optional wireless keyboard and stand.

But does its power make up for its expected $999 (637) price tag? Take a look and see what you think.
