Samsung Series 7 Slate PC


All quiet on the Windows 7 tablet front? Well, no, but we haven't exactly seen many shots fired lately. Sure, HP recently refreshed the Slate 500 with the Slate 2, but for the most part, products like this have been eclipsed by excitement around...

Fast performance ; Smooth pen input ; Works well as a laptop replacement

Very short battery life ; Heavy and bulky for a tablet ; No full-sized SD slot

The Series 7 is fast and powerful enough to replace a travel laptop, but with a price this high and battery life this short, it's best suited for businesses with very specific needs.

Samsung Series 7 Slate Review: Laptop Power in a Slim Package


The Samsung Series 7 Slate takes a different path from tht of other recent Windows 7 tablets, packing more-powerful components that include an Intel Core i5 processor and a 128GB solid-state drive. But the fancy ingredients aren't cheap: The Series 7...

Powerful 2G Intel Core i5 processor ; Roomy 128GB hard drive ; Great screen with dual Wacom pen and touch

Heat exhaust vent impedes use in portrait mode ; Fan runs almost all the time

Samsung has packed an entire Intel Core i5 laptop into a slim, light slate tablet. Too bad it had to pack a fan in there, too.

Samsung Series 7 Slate (700T1A)


The Samsung Series 7 Slate fills the gap between wimpy Windows tablets and clunky convertible laptops, providing a powerful processing and portable solution.

Laptop capabilities in a tablet form factor. Core i5 CPU and 4GB of RAM. 128GB SSD.

No tether or storage for stylus. Without the dock and keyboard, the tablet loses some of its functional appeal.

Samsung Slate PC review


With all the hype surrounding the new Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet, and favorites such as the iPad 2 and Asus Transformer, it's easy to forget that there are still new Windows tablets hitting stores. In fact, Windows tablets have been around for years,...

Samsung's Series 7 Slate is a powerful touch-screen Windows 7 PC, with a very Windows-8-like optional interface.

Onscreen typing is finicky and headache-inducing. The sold-separately dock and keyboard are practically required.

The Samsung Series 7 Slate 700T is the fastest Windows 7 tablet we've tested, and paired with its optional accessories, it provides a very laptop-like experience, but one marred by the typical awkward onscreen Windows typing experience.

Samsung Series 7 Slate Review: First Impressions


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.

I’ll have a full review up for you soon. What would you like to know about the Series 7 Slate?

Samsung Series 7 11.6" Slate: Breathing New Life Into Tablet PCs


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.

Samsung Series 7 11.6" Slate


It doesn't take a relationship counselor to see it: In our reviews and others', Windows and touch-screen tablets don't have the best reputation for getting along. As we saw with Fujitsu's admirable attempt—the $849 Stylistic Q550 Slate PC—at massaging...

Big, bright, and gorgeous screen ; Good touch and multi-touch responsiveness for a Windows 7 slate ; Fast processor, RAM and storage

Expensive ; Too big and awkward to hold for long periods ; Poor sound-recording capabilities

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.

The Samsung Series 7 Slate is a sleek and powerful piece of hardware that will serve you well if you can bear its relatively high cost, and you can't wait for the wave of Windows 8 tablets due to arrive later this year. If you need to run Windows...

Consumer review (

Cool idea but ultimately quite impractical


I found the unit to somewhat unusable without the clunky keyboard and mouse. IF you carried those items you have more junk/weight than a laptop to lug around. In all it was just never a pleasant user experience in Win 7 or Win 8.

Nice build quality fast and responsive nice screen Stylus worked well excellent video performance

Very expensive wonky navigation by touch screen registered touches that were never made gets hot frustrating to attempt to type on battery life was much lower than advertised (about4 hrs) a bit too large inmop
