    I have been reading reviews ab out this tablet, and I am interesting in purchasing it. I have a few questions I would like answered, before I make a purchase.

    Usage: I will be using this for college, would this tablet be good for that use, or what?

    Battery life: I hear that it gets 4-5 hours of battery life, is this actually true? Also will this amount be good for a college student?

    Speed: how fast is this computer, and can it handle games; Warcraft 3, Diablo, etc?

    Errors: What are the errors of this computer, and how bad are there? I've heard mostly about some type of "pointer" error, what is that about

    Thank you, and I hope you can help me out,

    The issues i've heard about w/ this machine are battery drain, and static issues.

    You might start out w/ 4-5 hrs, but that will quickly dimish. Take a look through the Asus forum here and see some of the issues that users are having.

    Hi Zuljian. I have the R1E since Dec. 2007. Since now I never had the problem with the mouse pointer, my battery wear was at 4% when I last looked at it (I must say that I use it mostly for painting and office doings, so it is not running every day and not verry long). Battery life up to 4 or 5 hours would be great, but not with my R1E, I think I will get 3 hours with display dimmed and bluetooth and w-lan of, maybe 3,5 hours, never really tested it. I also have the 2nd battery module, which is good for an other 1,5 hour or so.

    Thanks for your replies. So do you think this would be good for me as a college student? Also do they do on-site anywhere in the USA? How is it for gaming? I heard there isn't a touch screen for the tablet, is this true? Also gateway said that they have a problem to record a lecture and take notes with it, does the R1E have these features?
