ASUS TF300T-DOCK-BL Tablet Docking Station
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Who needs an ultrabook/netbook 07/21/2012

This review is from: ASUS TF300T-DOCK-BL Tablet Docking Station

Pros: Solidly built. USB and SDHC slots. Extra battery life (I've gotten 15 hours of use out of it on one charge). Does a great job of protecting the screen. Essential option for the TF300T tablet.

Cons: Wish it had space for a hard drive, but that's probably too much to ask. 2 USB ports would be nice, but that's what hubs are for :-)

Other Thoughts: I'm planning to set my TF300T up to dual boot Ubuntu as well. If that works out well (and from what I've read on the web, it does), I plan to ditch my netbook.

I've installed "External Keyboard Helper Pro" from the Android market. It cost a couple of bucks, and lets you remap keys to your heart's content. I've used this to make the keyboard work better for my usage (I now have a hardware Escape key, essential for using vi inside of the SSH client)

Le Pan TC 970 Tablet TI OMAP3630 1.00GHz 9.7
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice big screen.
good value.
not an ipad

Cons: First one was defective

Other Thoughts: Knocking off one egg for first one having issues with the touch screen. Newegg handled the replacement well and promptly, but I would have preferred better qc. Otherwise, it's great. And a very good value. Wish it came with ICS but may be upgradeable.

I'm typing this review on it!

ASUS Eee PC 1215T-MU10-BK Black AMD Athlon II Neo K125(1.70 GHz) 12.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good performance for a netbook, much better than the Atom based one it replaced. I swapped in a 4gb memory stick and it got even better. Lots of screen real estate. Asus makes great netbooks that work great under Ubuntu.

Comes with no OS, so no Micro$oft tax, which is important to me because I *hate* MS windows.

Still lightweight and compact, even with the 12" screen

Cons: Drive is somewhat loud and clicky. It works fine, but make more noise than I'd like. Only decent battery life - 4 hours instead of the 6 I was getting from the Atom based 1001HA

Went on sale for $40 less the day after I bought it! Oh well....

Other Thoughts: 12" screen is worth the bit of extra weight over a 10". I had a previous EeePC for about a year, and was feeling a little cramped in that 1024x600 screen, given the amount of use I was giving it.
