Simple but you will need more

Summary: Although liking the very small footprint and simplicity of the dock, you will need to add: USB port and separate power line. I am surprised, like other reviewers, that these features were not included.
Summary: I was excited to get the Samsung Series 7 slate because I was getting tired of walking around airports and to the classes I lecture, with a lap top. The fact that this device can do the same job as my lap top is what brought my attention to it. I can do presentations with ease by using the Bluetooth capability on my multimedia projector and the slate!
Summary: I recommend that this product may further be enhanced with 256 GB or 512 GB SSD, Intel HASWELL processor, and SIM card installation facility for mobile internet. However, this is an excellent product for persons like me who require mobile computing as an additional facility wherever we go.
Summary: Pound for pound a great tablet and laptop in a tight form factor. My unit is a reconditioned piece and the only complaint I have is the occasionally inconsistent pressure sensitivity creating multiple clicks or dropping dragged objects in odd spots.
Summary: Its been 3 months now that ive owned this tablet and ill have to say, it is absolutely amazing. Its fast, has an amazing screen, powerful, and most importantly for me, is fully Wacom compatible. Even though, it does have its falts, but some of them were so minor, I was easily able to forgive them. Pros: Samsung did a great job with this one. there aren't too many companies that will make a tablet PC that is Wacom compatible.
Summary: After many months of use, it is a great slate. I now use Windows 8 & Office 2013 on it. I needed something powerful that can run all of my Windows applications. Windows 8 runs perfectly on it. Office 2010/2013 are no problem. This has a full powered processor unlike the Acer w500 (Which is what I used previously) It allows 10 finger touch. It also has a stylus that comes with it that works incredibly well. Great handwriting recognition also.
Summary: For a tablet it's heavy and battery life isn't great (my Series 9 laptop with similar specs have almost double the battery life). Overall it's a good product if you're not a heavy user (which is odd because it ships with a powerfull processor and runs Windows 7). if you're looking for a really light weight and ultra portable device this shouldn't be your first choice.
Summary: Review Note: Formatted the drive and installed Windows 8. Pros: -Screen is bigger than the Surface Pro, which helps when multitasking. -SSD is blazing fast (boots in less than 10 seconds). Not really unique to this tablet, but worth noting. -While it does heat up occasionally when I'm doing something processor intensive, it never gets "hot" -Windows 8 works great, I can run all Windows 7 applications and full Office Suite (get Office 2013 as it is intended for a touch...

Summary: If you are looking for a tablet but don't want to make the switch to Android or iOS, the Series 7 is an excellent alternative. I purchased this tablet because I already had a library of Windows-compatible software that I did not want to replace with different products designed for other operating systems. However, when using Windows software on a tablet, some occasional hiccups to arise because they were never designed for a touch interface.
Summary: First off, I'm using the stylus to write this review. It's pretty amazing. Windows8 is perfect for this machine. Once I figured out the in's & out's it's pretty easy to manage. Windows8 is all about the touch screen. I just wish there is more options for cases, like Otter. With all that being said, I know this model isn't out with Windows8 yet. So either wait for it, or suffice for the Surface.... Or know an IT guy.
