Asus Eee Slate
show user profile  9krausec
Looking for a small, portable solution to work on 3ds max as well as photoshop stuff.. This took the cake, absolutely amazing.

For a notebook I am running a HP HDX 18t series notebook, but I am going to sell it for this I think..

What do you guys think? I know the touch bit isn't as sensitive as a wacom, but it will work for me and beginning texture/photoshop work. For a mobile solution while I'm at work, or running around like a chicken with it's head cut off (which happens more than naught), I think this would be a good option.

I tried several times to work in max with the tablet. I just can't.
Looks sweet though.

yeah, it's expensive, but if I can sell my notebook for 550 and get okay tax returns, I should be fine. I'm excited, I didn't know they were sticking i5s into tablets.

These have been around for a while, they are pretty impressive, though I'd love to see a more powerful version. On the other hand, they actually do have a wacom in them, but yea I think it only has 1024 or 512 pressure levels

I'd love to see this running with windows 8, to make it a bit nicer to use, I guess a more touch sensitive photoshop layout would be nice too, or programmable hot keys around the edges like my cintiq has.

Still pretty awesome though :D

How long has this specific model been on the market? If it's been around 6 months, I might just want til next quarter when a new/better one comes out (get that one or get this one at a cheaper rate).

I can't say for sure but I think it is the same as the one I checked out over 6 months ago, of course I could be very wrong... just do a bit of googling, I would but I'm on my phone

looked a lot into it, cause the idea is awesome. my conclusion was that it was too pricey for a first gen i5 ultra low power. (1.3Ghz AFAIK)
Which also means the Intel HD GPU (not HD 2000 or 3000).

Samsung is on the way with an even pricier Win7 tablet with a second gen ultra low power i5, 1.6GHz with a HD 3000 GPU..

Both tablets only have up to 64GB SSD, which is very little for a win7 machine. Not sure what interface the SSDs are using, but Upgrading to a 120GB would be a nice change.

edit- and I think I started looking at the Asus Slate over a year ago.. But it was never available.
Still haven't found a danish site that actually sells the thing.

Terribly boring signature.

@Timon- good to know. I guess the plan has changed, wait til Asus comes out with an updated Slate, the wait ti the price levels off..

I'm in no rush at all for this (just think it would be pretty bad ass and then I wouldn't have to hull my notebook around everywhere). Pretty soon they will be sticking i7 processors into slates..!

Following that logic, pretty soon smartphones will have touch-projectors and hex-cores in them :p

It's always a tossup by how much you want/need something, and how much you are willing to wait for prices to drop, or cooler shit to come out

captain obvious says a regular desktop is the best bang for buck if you need a high end system.

Okay, I have a high end DT I built. Want something mobile that I can do work on.

Attention Everyone! I need to go to work in 20 minutes, so I don't have time to post the specs, but I need some advice on the sales price of my notebook. I put it up for 600 dollars on craigslist last night and already have a flood of people that want to buy it, so I don't know if I'm missing something or undercutting my price.. Selling the HDX 18t for 600 dollars with a core duo extreme in it (I'll post the specific specifications up in half hour or so).

I just don't want to get screwed, haha, but I figured 600 dollars was a good asking price.

Hey Hey! Okay, here are the specs for the HDX 18t notebook. Just making sure 600 dollars is a fair asking price (for me more than anything, don't want to undercut myself too much).

4 gigs of ddr3 ram (up-gradable to 8)

video car: NVIDIA GeForce GT 130M

and cpu below-

When I bought it a few years back it cost me about 2200 (before all i series were even out)

Please let me know if 600 dollars is too little or too much or what you personally would value the hardware at (in mint working condition, battery never been used or charged and it comes with a Tagrus case).

edit: Oh, and the keyboard lights the hell up, haha

These look cool. Would be awesome if you can use with your desktop pc as a kinda wacom / extra screen type of setup. I guess you could set up synergy with it. But would be cool if you could drag and drop files from one to the other.

yeah, that would be pretty bomb diggity. What do you think of my pricing on the notebook? Doing some more research I've seen the prices on these vary considerably on the webz.
