Asus Slate EP121 A Tablet For Artists
Hey guys! I saw this a week ago and it got me really excited. It's the Asus Slate EP121. It's a tablet with a Wacom digitizer! The specs seem pretty decent for such a slim form factor: Intel i5, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 64GB solid state drive. Well, I guess the drive is the weak spot, but then I thought I wouldn't be storing gigantic PSD files in there anyway so maybe it'll work out just fine. The only thing that would take getting used to is working with Photoshop and Painter without keyboard shortcuts, I guess. Is it the perfect tablet that we artists have been waiting for? Probably not (based on some reviews), but it's definitely a huge step in the right direction. Maybe the next iteration will see an i7, 6GB ddr3, and at least 128 SSD.
