Gigabyte S1082 Alternatives
|Microsoft Surface Pro, 10.6", 907gm|
Microsoft's Surface Pro is likely to give the tablet category a good boost through the marketing and branding and this version of the Surface will be a true desktop-capable device. At 900gm it's one of the lightest Core-based tablets and the 10.1" screen also makes it highly portable. A digitiser layer, FULLHD resolution and keyboard accessories only make it more interesting. We'd have preferred to see a full size SD card slot although the SDXC slot will be useful in expanding storage space.
|Sony Vaio Tap 11, 11.6", 780gm|
The Sony Vaio Tap 11 is, at launch, the lightest 4th-Gen Core-based tablet available although models start with a slightly cut-down Pentium version. Great screen, included keyboard, 3G/LTE options and a good entry-level price.
|Microsoft Surface Pro 2, 10.6", 907gm|
|HP Omni 10, 10.0", 652gm|
The HP Omni 10 offers full-HD resolution on a 10-inch tablet in just 650 grams - a big step forward for Windows tablets. The entry price of 399 Euro is a step forward too.
|HP Elitepad 1000 G2, 10.1", 680gm|
|Samsung XE700, 11.6", 860gm|
The EX700 includes a little bit of everything. Good processing power, a USB2.0 port, digitiser, Wi-Di capability, digitiser (for pen) and capacatice layer (for finger) a docking port and keyboard, fast SSD disk and all in a lightweight shell but it's missing things that laptops offer like full-size SD card slots, a USB 3.0 bus and a VGA port. As a mobile PC or a hot-desking PC, the XE700 looks like it can take on a lot of working scenarios though and with Windows 8 it's going to look even better. An impressive full-range tablet PC.
|Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, 10.1", 599gm|
The Lenovo ThinkPad 10 is a 10.1″ tablet, of just 10mm thickness. It is based on Intel's latest Atom Clovertrail platform and sports up to 10 hours of battery life. There is an optional stylus for use with active digitizer for enhanced accuracy while taking handwritten notes.
