Samsung Series 7 Slate PC

Windows 7 is the current operating system that Microsoft is promoting, though the talk of Windows 8 being released in the very near future means that all of the tablets and devices that run Windows 7 are yesterday’s news. The Samsung Series 7 Slate PC is one of the devices with Windows 7, and it’s considered one of the best Windows 7 Tablets. You will find that it will be a bit expensive – the retail price is $1,100 – but it will be a solid choice for those who want to use Samsung tablets with amazing Windows capabilities.

Details

The tablet comes with a display that is 11.6 inches in diameter, which is about 1.5 inches larger than the large tablets on the market. You will find that it runs an excellent CPU – the Intel Core i5 rather than the Atom – and you will find that it works at a great speed. It is a responsive tablet that will make working on the go a lot easier and more compact!

The tablet comes with a special dock, which is where you can connect the Bluetooth keyboard to it for handy working. It’s a solid device that feels like a regular laptop – but without the keyboard—and it will feel nice and solid in your hands. It has regular USB ports, vents that show just how powerful the CPU can be, and a tough brushed aluminum lid that looks very nice.

The device is dignified, but it’s also very heavy. It weighs just over 2 pounds, which makes it one of the heaviest of the tablets on the market. It seems a bit too large when you hold it, but it has excellent resolution and makes watching any movies or playing any games on the tablet a whole lot of fun. It’s best to use the tablet in landscape rather than portrait, as it makes it easier for you to manage the weight. The surface is made to be scratch and slip resistant, and you will find that it will fit nicely into pretty much any shoulder bag.

Pros

  • The tablet is a very solid one, and it will work very well if you need a work device. It runs Windows 7 nicely, and it is a simple tablet that runs like a workhorse.
  • The user interface is made to be easy to use even by those with large fingers, and the keyboard that comes with the tablet will ensure that you can type without having to use the touch keyboard.
  • The tablet comes with a digital pen that is easy to use for controlling the device, and you will find that Windows 7 Tablet is made for easy management.

Cons

The main downside to this device is its price, which is a lot higher than most of the other tablets on the market. Sure, the device may be made for work, but that’s still a pretty hefty price to pay. Also the fact that it weighs over 2 pounds means that it’s going to be quite heavy, and it can tire you out if you end up lugging it around with all of its accessories – not to mention a computer as well.

Final Thoughts

The truth is that this tablet is a bit costly, and it may not be worth it if you don’t want one that will weigh more than average. It is a solid device that runs very nicely thanks to the Intel Core i5 processor, and it will make using Windows programs a lot easier. Price and weight notwithstanding, it’s a great choice!
