    I want to get your opinion for Asus tablet R1F with the following spces, which one will you buy? Suppose they are all Asus factory default specs, with 2 year global warranty, not modified by dealers. Price difference will be very reasonable. Please poll or post your opinion.

    Asus R1F versionA: Core 2 Duo T5500, 1024M X 1, 80G 5400rpm, DVDRW, Wireless, Windows Vista business, 2 year Global warranty...

    Asus R1F version B: Core 2 Duo T7200, 1024M X 2, 160G 5400rpm, DVDRW, Wireless, Windows Vista business, 2 year Global warranty...

    Asus R1F version C: Core 2 Duo T7200, 1024M X 2, 100G 7200rpm, DVDRW, Wireless, Windows Vista business, 2 year Global warranty...

    Version is the current Asus R1F 018E, MSRP US$1700, Let's suppose version B and C are US$1950 - 2000.

    Here's my take on this:
    • For the processor, I definately like T7200 better than T5500, since T7200 has 4MB L2 cache and faster clock speed. This eliminates the first choice.
    • RAM: I'd really prefer 1024Mx1 or 2048x2, but since these are not available with T7200 in the choice, I'd be forced to negotiate with 1024Mx2
    • Hard Disk: I don't think 7200 and 5400 RPM makes much difference.. it's not like this is for a gaming rig where every fps counts. Ideally, I'd go with 100GB 5400RPM if I can get it for cheaper than either 160G 5400/100G 7200. But if I had to choose between the two, I'll pick 160GB 5400 for more capacity.
    My IDEAL config would be T7200, 2048MX2, and 100GB 5400 RPM HD under $2000. Hey, I can wish! :D Only if ASUS would straighten out the battery issue, I'd place my order in a heartbeat :(

    Edit: Oh yeah.. I did pick the option B :)

    None. I've already bought one.

    If I was going to buy another one, I'd probably be most interested in (B), depending on price of course.

    One more thing, Milestone...when are you going to get modular R1 batteries in stock?

    I think, with 160G 5400rpm, it should be still under 2000$US, this will be finalized in couple of days, I just need more opinion of the RPM of the HD.


    IN USA, we do, in Canada, no.

    yes, Milestone, but I doubt you can meet his wish of 2048Mx2 in that package at under $2000 ;)

    I'd go with [C]. My experience with hard drives is that there is (for me, with artwork) enough of a difference between 5400rpm versus 7200rpm to sacrifice 60gbs for speed.

    Ditto what alphaswift said: with a config like that, if Asus could clear up the battery bug (and maybe once and for all the audio issue), I'd be close to hopping on the R1F as a refresh for my M200.

    Milestone, to me all processor, RAM, and HD make enough of a difference to want a faster one. Thus C. Besides, 100 GB shold be (relatively) enough, and 7200 RPM is quite a step-up

    Well, considering that version B is what I just ordered (from milestonepc!!), and I should be getting today, I voted for B!

    I'd like an even larger harddisk, but the 5400 vs. 7200 doesn't matter much to me.
