Series 7 Slate gets another Preview

Posted on 03 October 2011 by


I had time with the Series 7 Slate at IFA last month and was very impressed. Its simply the best Windows tablet I’ve ever used. When windows 8 comes along it will get even better. Light, powerful and thankfully, delivered with a dock and keyboard making it a true multi-scenario device.  Those of you thinking about an Ultrabook for ultra-mobile activities might want to take a look at this because it uses the same Core i5 platform. It will especially appeal to photographers due to the high-brightness screen and hot-deskers because of the dock. Everyone will appreciate the Core i5 CPU!

The Series 7 ‘Ultraslate’ has been in Ritchies Room recently and gets a similar thumbs up. You’ll see photos of the dock and keyboard and hear some positive thoughts about design. Check it out at the link below.

    From what I can see Asus and Samsung has a chance to be the Top 5 US PC manufacturer, even Top 5 World PC manufacturer in the next few years. I’m really impressed with this device.

    For Asus I like the UX21/31 they are going to get. I’m hoping they can get to Apple’s prices on the Air though.

    • I’ve been so impressed with Samsung this year. Everything from phones through tablets to the high end laptops have just been class-leading.

      P.s. Welcome to Ultrabooknews!

        I’ve been hanging around Ultrabooknews site for few months now. :)

        By the way I was pretty underwhelmed with their Series 9 Sandy Bridge based ultraportable. Ultimate comparison was always the Macbook Air 2011. However, Series 7 Slate is in a class of its own. This is something that screams something in the right direction for high performance slate PC.
