I've been looking for a new table PC. It came down to 2 – the Lenovo X60 and the ASUS R1F. The Lenovo product has received great reviews and its users say good things about it. However, I didn't like the narrow aspect ratio of the screen, lack of a built in DVD/CD, small 60GB hard drive and its anemic 1.66 GHz Core 2 Duo processor. The ASUS R1F, on the other hand, offers a wide aspect ratio screen, built-in DVD RW, and a slightly larger 80GB hard drive. But it offers the same anemic 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo processor as the X60. So, I was stuck. I didn't want to purchase a tablet with a wimpy processor or tiny hard drive. So, I kept searching. I almost purchased a R1f_2 Toshiba M-400. I could upgrade the processor on this machine to a 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo and get a 120 GB hard drive. I've owned Toshiba products before and wasn't too excited about owning one again. Plus, I really wanted the ASUS.
Then, I came across MilestonePC.com. These guys offer ASUS's complete line of laptops, but also offer reasonably priced upgrades. So, I put in an order for an ASUS R1F with a 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM, and a 160GB hard drive – my version of a dream tablet PC. I put the order in around 1pm EST. I promptly got a confirmation email. Two hours later, I received another email telling me that the tablet would be picked up for delivery by UPS that afternoon and it contained my tracking number. I later got a confirmation that the tablet was pickup and on its way. All of my emails, were signed by firstname.lastname@example.org.
I received the tablet on schedule with all upgrades in place and working fine. I've been using the machine for about 3 weeks and I love it. I recently added a second battery to the hot swappable drive bay. I'm a PC tech/installer and I keep all my client records in my tablet. I can now use the tablet all day without plugging in.
I encourage you to check out the ASUS products at MilestonePC.com. To date, my experience with Danny Li and company has been superior. They also sell laptops from LG and Compal. Now you can Consider It Fixed!
