Back in May we first heard about the business oriented version of the Eee Slate EP121 – the Eee Slate B121. No details were given back then other than it would ship with Windows 7 Professional over Home Premium. Turns out late last month, it went on sale in Switzerland according to the local Asus Facebook page. Looking at the specs, the only difference seems to be the OS version, as mentioned. Listings show an Intel Core i5-470UM chip, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 12.1″ AFFS 1280 x 800 display with digitizer, 64GB SSD, Bluetooth 3.0, b/g/n Wi-Fi, HDMI, USB x 2 and an SDXC card reader.

In a recent interview with Forbes, ASUS CEO Jonney Shih mentions the Eee Slate is here to stay. Obviously ASUS’ other, cheaper offerings are going to appeal more to general consumers but the CEO points out there’s a healthy market of power users for the Eee Slate – business travelers and what not.
