    Hi All I've been desperately looking for the Asus EA800 for a reasonable price. I really want this tablet is it really all gone? If so I would like the closest replacement I can find for it.


    General Questions.

    1. What is your budget?

    Maximum 200USD

    2. Would you consider purchasing used/refurbished?

    I would like to buy it new but I am open to buying used/refurbished

    3. Do you prefer a media/mobile tablet like the iPad, Windows tablet PC, or notebook convertible?

    I don't want a tablet for media/mobile purposes. I need a tablet strictly for note taking and reading (mainly ebooks and PDFs)

    4. What size Tablet PC would you prefer?
    • 5 to7-inches
    • 7.1 to 10-inches
    • 10 to 13-inches
    • Above 13-inches
    6-9 inches is what i'm looking for


    5. Which country do you intent to purchase from [where do you live]?

    I live in the US

    6. Do you have any preferences to brand loyalty or dislikes?

    Nope

    7. How many hours battery life do you require?

    Very long, like at least 13+ hours, I want a kindle like device but one that can take handwritten notes.

    8. What will be the primary usage scenario of this tablet? (Email/Web Surfing/Drawing/Word Processing/Entertainment/Notetaking etc)

    Note taking (handwritten) and reading (ebooks, PDFs, etc)

    9. Do you have an OS preference? For example, do you own an iPhone and a Mac, or are you a Windows fan? Do you own an Android device and use Google services frequently?

    I own a Macbook Pro, but as long as I can upload PDFs onto the tablet I don't care for full compatibility.

    10. What software and tasks do you intend to run? (Microsoft Office or other Word Processing Suite/Photoshop/3D Studio Max/Autocad etc)

    No preference again I just want to take handwritten notes and read ebooks and PDFs

    11. Do you intend on playing Games? If so please list.

    Nope

    12. Would you like to stream content through your home theater system?

    No

    Screen Specifics

    1. Any preference on screen resolution?

    No

    2. Will you be using the tablet outdoors? Do you need to be able to see it through glare from the sun?
    See the above linked FAQ for guidance

    I will mostly use it indoors but sometimes outdoors, but since I want a long battery life I actually want a grayscale tablet almost like the kindle e-readers so the sun glare shouldn't be an issue

    3. Do you require a pen? With or without pressure sensitivity? Do you prefer Wacom or N-trig?
    See the above linked FAQ for guidance

    Yes pressure sensitivity is not required, I just want a reliable stylus that works well.

    Component Specifics

    1. What size Hard Drive and Memory do you require? Would you like expandable memory?

    No real preference but as much as I can get.

    2. What sort of inputs do you require, if any? Would you like full-sized USB and SD card slots? Are microUSB and microSD ok? Do you require HDMI inputs?

    USB would be nice

    Misc
    1. Other non specific items ~ please add other items you require not covered above?
    None that I can think of.
    2. Additional requests ~ anything other you wish to take into consideration?
    None that I can think of.

    Even if you find an Asus EA800, you will have to service it to replace the battery. Just FYI. I kinda regret telling you about this ancient device...

    I still think Dell Venue 8 Pro is your device.
