ASUS outs business tablet with Core i5, Win 7 Pro

ASUS has just introduced its business-oriented Eee Slate B121 PC. The 12.1-inch, 1280x800 tablet is similar to the original Eee Slate but tuned to workers, with security coming from a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) and Computrace LoJack for remote location and data wipes. It likewise ships with Windows 7 Professional, although it still has the Gorilla Glass display and a 1.33GHz low-voltage Core i5.

Other specs on this trim level bring 4GB of RAM, a 64GB solid-state drive, two USB 2.0 ports, a mini HDMI output, and an SD card slot. There is also a two-megapixel, front-facing camera.

The tablet is two-thirds of an inch thick and weighs 2.56lbs, which is light for Windows PCs but heavy among tablets.

The price tag is high at $1,500, but it includes both a Bluetooth keyboard and a Wacom stylus.
