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.

Samsung XE700 Alternatives

Based on weight, screen-size and form-factor.
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, 12.2 inch, 749 grams (1.65 lbs)
This particular variant of Samsung's Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, an Android tablet with stylus pen, has an Exynos 5 octa core processor (model 5420) at 1.9GHz and a Mali T628 graphics coprocessor (@ 533MHz). To remind you the device has an enhanced Android UI with multi window interface where you can multi task in each. There's a nice looking keyboard/cover as an accessory option.
Apple iPad Pro, 12.9 inch, 713 grams (1.57 lbs)
Apple have launched the iPad Pro a monster 12.9 inch tablet with 2,732x2,048 resolution screen powered by an A9X processor they claim is 80% more powerful than existing laptops - we don't know how they calculated this! Clearly influenced by Microsofts Surface line and pricing starts at $799.
HP Pro Slate 12, 12.3 inch, 850 grams (1.87 lbs)
The HP Pro Slate 12 is a 12.3 inch Android Lollipop tablet with an unusual screen resolution of 1600x1200 and a 4:3 ratio screen, good for full page reading, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad core CPU. An HP Duet Pen is included to work with the HP suite of productivity apps as well as those yo can get from the Google store.
Cube i7 Remix, 11.6 inch, 720 grams (1.59 lbs)
Chinese manufacturer Cube's Remix i7 is a large (for Android) 11.6 inch IPS screen full HD tablet with the modified Android 'Remix OS' that has some windows-like enhancements. This is much cheaper alternative to the Jide Remix tablet but does not come with a keyboard at the price (about US$160 converted).
Jide Remix ( Ultra), 11.6 inch, 860 grams (1.9 lbs)
Jide was founded last year by 3 ex-Google software engineers the Remix Ultra tablet has some similarities to the Sureface 3. It has been supported by a Kickstarter campaign and Foxconn as well as the owners own money. the tablet has a magnetically attached keyboard and a custom ROM based on Android 4.4.4 but with adjustments to operate a touch more like Windows (multipane windows for instance).
Dell Venue 11 Pro 7140 (7140-6150), 10.8 inch, 770 grams (1.7 lbs)
The Dell Venue 11 Pro is a 10.8" Windows 8.1 Tablet running on Intels Core-M 5Y10 SoC platform. The 10.8" display features a Full HD (1920x1080 pixels) resolution and offers good viewing angles due to the IPS screen. It has a 10 finger multitouch screen and comes with an additional digitizer. Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi a/b/g/n and NFC make for some good wireless connectivity. In terms of ports it offers 1x USB 3.0, 1x microUSB 2.0, a microSDHC port and an miniHDMI port. We like the fact that the battery is user replaceable. A frontfacing 1.3MP as well as a backfacing 8MP camera should be enough for all your tablet needs. Note that there are multiple options like LTE available.
Microsoft Surface Pro 3, 12.0 inch, 800 grams (1.76 lbs)
Microsoft have taken the Surface 2, increased the screen size an reduced the weight making it a leading example of tablet engineering. The 12-inch, 800 gram tablet won't be aimed at casual users but with the included digitizer it will appeal to creative types. Pricing matches its pro-level specifications. Starting at $799 it's 'accessible' but if you're looking at 8GB RAM, Core i5 and 128GB of SSD you'll be forced to take the 256GB model at $1299. Great engineering and a perfect device for a lot of creatives but not exactly your mainstream laptop-replacement, especially as similar performance can be had in an Ultrabook for a much lower price.
Sony Vaio Tap 11, 11.6 inch, 780 grams (1.72 lbs)
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 inch, 907 grams (2 lbs)
Toshiba WT310, 11.6 inch, 825 grams (1.82 lbs)
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.
