Steve Ballmer’s new PC: A Win7 Asus tablet

Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer showed off his new tablet during Microsoft’s Imagine conference in Redmond this morning.

It’s not an iPad 2 but it looks like one from a distance. It’s a slate PC from Asus, which began selling the Windows 7 EP121 last month.

Ballmer showed it off during a question and answer session following his speech at Imagine, taking notes with its stylus.

He said using the stylus is more polite during meetings than typing on a tablet, and mocked the appearance of someone typing and staring down onto a touchscreen.

Ballmer acknowledged the strong momentum of Apple and promised nice devices coming with Windows.

“There are new form factors coming with Windows 7 on it. There will be new form factors with new versions of Windows,” he said, adding that “we’re driving hard.”
