Gigabyte S1185 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.
|Microsoft Surface Pro 2, 10.6", 907gm|
|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.
|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.
|Toshiba WT310, 11.6", 825gm|
The Toshiba WT310 is an 11" Windows 8 Pro Tablet with optional HSPA+ / LTE support. No notes on the CPU yet and no info on SSD size. It is likely to be based on the Intel Ivy bridge Y models. The pen can be used for additional stylus-input.
|Gigabyte S1082, 10.1", 790gm|
The Gigabyte S1082 is a 10.1" Windows 8 Tablet with built in 3G. With Wifi B/G/N, Bluetooth 4.0, gigabit LAN, HDMI and VGA out combined with an SDHC Card-Reader plus a two port headphone + microphone jack this tablet has some serious ports to offer for such a small and cheap device. The Intel Celeron 847 with 2x1.1GHz should be more powerful than an atom based device. It comes with an 29.6Wh battery included. There is an optional Keyboard kit and an additional 20.25Wh extended battery available.
