Which Windows 7 Tablet? HP Slate or Asus EEE Slate

I am planning to buy a new tablet and I have seen HP Slate but lack of CPU power is a big problem for me. Therefore, I started to wait for the CES 2011 since 2011 will be the year of tablets right?

Here are links if you want to see the specifications by yourself;
For HP Slate: http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13658_na/13658_na.html
For Asus EEE Slate: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Slate-EP121-1A011M-12-1-Inch-Tablet/dp/B004HKIIF8

Anyway as far as I see Asus EEE Slate seems the best solution for me, why?

- Costs $200 more from HP Slate but has very powerful CPU in which I can even write my code.
- It comes with a Bluetooth keyboard in the box.
- Has two USB ports.
- 12.1'' screen in which you can see many things with 1280x800 resolution.
- 32 GB of storage is enough for me although 64GB version is available for $100.

Here are the cons for me;

- Does not have a 3G or 4G sim card slot.
- It is heavier(~2.5pounds) than HP Slate(~1.5pounds)
- 3 hours of battery life is not very promising(it is 5hrs in HP Slate) but I can buy an extra battery.

As a result I am waiting for the end of CES whether there will be another great tablet(which includes 3G/4G) announcement if not Asus EEE Slate seems good for me now.
