Reactions to my Asus Eee Pad (and a chance to win one)

It seems that people can’t help but react to my Asus EeePad. It’s so unusual I suppose.

From techy friends who know how special it is I have had this:

Oh that is wasted on you, you only blog and tweet!  – charming

How on earth did you get one of them you can’t get them for love or money? (I do feel exclusive but they are  now expected back in the UK from June)


OMG, you have an Eee Pad you are so, so lucky  (I agree!)

Non techie friends have said the following

That. Is .So. Cool. (when I do my party trick and turn it into a net book by placing the tablet in the docking station)

It looks gorgeous, very sleek.

Oh , now that’s brilliant (when I do the portrait/ landscape turn around jig).

 My son’s reaction (remember I have never had an iphone or pad)  

Mum this is amazing can I keep it? You already have a pc and a net book. I love it. It will really help with my homework  (He is 6, he doesn’t have homework but he has become totally obsessed with apps. I didn’t even know what apps really were prior to getting the Eee Pad. Now I know they are sort of gadgets /games/pages I can download – some for free. I also know angry birds is addictiive. He is heavily monitored but I palyed it for 3 hours the other night!)

 My daughter’s reaction  (she is 3)

eee pad

A: Mummy  can I play on your thingy

Me: What thingy?

A: Mummy your thingy with the slidy letters.You know mummy the one I can do with my finger.

M: Do you mean the Eee pad

A: No, I mean the magic thingy mummy.

 My hubby’s reaction (IT consultant)

Lovely piece of kit. Very useful. Solves the problem for those who prefer traditional keyboards but need a tablet when out and about.

My reaction

I love it! I love that I can film with it and photograph with it,  read with it, play games on it, blog on it, tweet on it, carry it around, entertain my kids, etc etc etc.  I think it’s fab!

Do you want one?

    I’m trying to think of ways in which I could bribe the Asus people to give me one of these fabulous better-than-the-Ipads. I’m guessing they wouldn’t take a child in part-payment?

    Hi Becky, it looks like a cool gadget and ASUS is well-known for the quality of graphics.
    I own an ipad and I am curious to compare them. Perhaps we should meet up lol!
    My daughter is a big fan of the ipad so not surprise by your daughter’s reaction!
    Lots of love, C.

    They sound fab! My son loves his dad’s touch screen phone, he would sit and play with it all day if he could!

    OOooooh. I would absolutely love one of these. As would our 4 year old.

    This looks and sounds absolutely fantastic! Kieran is 4yrs old and would think it ever so “awesome”, which pretty much sums up what I think 🙂
    Great write up.

    Ohh- a tablet that isn’t an iPad. Can you play Moshi Monsters on it?

  13. May 10, 2011 / 7:42 pm

    I have fallen in love! I have the original Asus EEE PC and I still use it regularly. Lovely little machine. Seems only natural to move onto one of these!
