Conclusion: Priced at AED 4999, the Samsung Slate PC Series 7 is certainly not cheap and more than twice of what you could get an iPad or an Android based tablet for. But then again, the Slate is a full blown PC and not a cut-down version of an OS. However, the OS is not the most tablet-friendly OS that exists which is the real dilemma here.
Conclusion: The Samsung Series 7 Slate is definitely the best slate form factor Windows 7 tablets to hit the market, and it's earned our Editor's Choice award. It packs plenty of power thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU and Intel HD 3000 graphics that trounce Atom-based tablets from HP, Acer and Fujitsu. The display is superb though glossy and colors are almost better than life.
Pros: Relatively light, excellent touch experience by Windows standards, active digitizer with pen, fast, decent battery life.
Excerpt: Samsung is no stranger to the tablet world, but this model is its first attempt at a Windows-based slate. The Samsung Series 7 Slate benefits from Samsung's overall design experience; at 1.29cm thick, the Series 7 Slate is particularly thin for a Windows 7 tablet. Nevertheless, a number of recent Android tablets are thinner, as is the third-generation Apple iPad .
Summary: Der Samsung Serie 7 Slate PC gibt einen Vorgeschmack auf die kommenden Windows-8-Tablets auf x86-Basis. Denn der Samsung 700T1A H01 ist leichter, flacher, schneller und schicker als das Gros der bisherigen Windows-Tablets.
