ASUS set to deliver R1F widescreen tablet

One can't fault ASUS for not entering the Tablet PC market earlier. Microsoft's Tablet PC platform hasn’t exactly been lighting up the sales charts with consumers or businesses. Perhaps ASUS knows something that we don't or it’s just tired of sitting on the sidelines, but the company’s new R1F Tablet PC FCC application has just been published.

The FCC filing for ASUS R1F is complete with pictures, instruction manual and specifications. The widescreen tablet features Core Duo processors, 802.11a/b/g wireless, GbE, Bluetooth, biometric security, slot-load DVD burner, ExpressCard slot, 3-in-1 media reader, three USB 2.0 ports, SPDIF out, TV-out and VGA out. The tablet also features a modular bay to accept a second battery pack instead of the optical drive.

The panel of the RF1 rotates around so that the RF1 can be used in a notebook or tablet style. 

It should be interesting at what price point the R1F comes in at. ASUS notebooks have traditionally been a bit on the pricey side (I know from experience), but their build quality is usually beyond reproach. We’ll keep you informed as more information rolls in.

It's an english expression that just means the build quality (of their laptops) is good.


Screen res and chipset?

I'm assuming this is a 14" widescreen. Any word on the resolution (1280x720, 768 or 800), or the graphics chipset? Looked over the docs at the FCC site, but didn't see anything about this.




Hmm reminds me of the A6000 series

No the preceding didn't confirm many defects with Asus motherboards.

I, like millions of others have PC with Asus motherboards, and sure there may be the BIOS updated that needs to be applied but my Asus based machines have worked well, 6 of them in all.

Any piece of hardware will have its problem, and any hardware producer will have process problems from time to time, but there are few companies on the planet that mass produce motherboards and add in cards as well as Asus.

If Asus were as bad as you claim, I'd expect Asus would'nt have been in business as long as it has.
