If the Samsung Series 7 is any indication, Windows 8-based tablets are going to be a big hit with the business set. Soon, we will have a Windows OS that is built for such a device. There will no doubt be a rush of Windows 8 tablets this fall after...

Calling Samsung’s 11.6-inch Series 7 device a ‘tablet’ feels inaccurate. Yes, it uses the same form factor as devices like the Apple iPad and Samsung’s own Galaxy Tab, but it’s really not comparable. For now, we’re just going to use Samsung’s term:...

These days whenever someone mentions the word “Tablet” visions of the iPad or something similar dance in their heads. Not that long ago a tablet was something quite different: a Windows-based slate computer.Since the rise of the new idea of the tablet...

Tablet PCs are a dying breed, and Windows 8 is still at least a year away. Until we see what Microsoft's next operating system has to offer, one tablet PC shows us why this form factor is still a winner. Samsung's Series 7 11.6" Slate breaks the mold....

The jury is still out on Windows 7 tablets — and, at this point, it looks like it may never come in — but with the Series 7 Slate, Samsung at least gives this difficult niche the old college try.Our last encounter with a Windows tablet dates back to...

There's nothing quite like the Series 7 Slate. Windows 7 tablets, yes, but they're mostly still chugging along on weaker Atom processors. Serious Android ones that accept pen input? Point, Lenovo. Tablets that easily morph into a dumbed-down laptop...

The Series 7 Slate PC is a tablet computer that’s powerful enough to be used as a laptop or desktop. It may be the only computer you need, which is something that sets it apart from most Android and iOS tablets which are best seen as items that you...

The Samsung Series 7 Slate is definitely one of the best slate form factor Windows 7 tablets to hit the market. It packs plenty of power thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU and Intel HD Graphics 3000 that trounce Atom-based tablets from HP and Fujitsu....

This powerful tablet has a beautiful, large 11.6-inch screen and runs Windows 7 respectably well. Consider it if you need the power of Windows in a tablet that can convert into a laptop via accessories, but mind the hefty weight and price....

We have the power of a laptop stuffed into a slim, light, magnesium-alloy case – along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, optional 3G and twin HD cameras. It's fronted by a responsive 11.6in 1,366 x 768 capacitive PLS screen with superb viewing angles and...

Samsungs Serie 7 Slate zeigt gut, dass man zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt mit dem Kauf eines Tablets mit Windows noch warten sollte. Abgesehen vom Slot für die SIM-Karte, macht die Verarbeitung einen guten Eindruck. Durch das hohe Gewicht ist das Tablet auf...
