Pros: Samsung's Series 7 Slate is a powerful touch-screen Windows 7 PC, with a very Windows-8-like optional interface.
Cons: Onscreen typing is finicky and headache-inducing. The sold-separately dock and keyboard are practically required.
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.
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.
