|Netbook Navigator Nav 9, 9.0 inch, 900 grams (1.98 lbs)|
With multitouch, a tablet-enable build of Windows 7 (premium,) 2GB RAM, a 900gm weight and good entry level price, the Nav 9 helps to bring true, productive tablet PCs to the masses. Our only concern is the very small battery which we estimate to be worth up to a maximum of only 2.5 hours. An extended battery (about 150% capacity) will bring the capacity up to around 4 hours and at %50, is recommended because it's a custom install. Included carrying case and car charger rounds off a nice package. Note: 3G retro-fit should be possible with a PCI-Express mini module. (Unconfirmed) Question remains about removable battery. (We suspect not.)
Options exist for 32, 64 and 128GB SSD.
|Archos 9, 9.0 inch, 800 grams (1.76 lbs)|
A 9" Tablet-style PC is a rare occurrence. This is a Windows 7-based device that focuses on media. The chipset included is capable of 1080p and Windows 7 can certainly drive H.264 up to extremely high bitrates but the 1.1Ghz CPU with the 4200RPM hard drive seems to slow this device down to 'boring' levels.
|ASUS Eee PC T91, 9.0 inch, 980 grams (2.16 lbs)|
With a weight of under 1kg and a very small size, it's going to be interesting for mobile users.
|3K Razorbook 400, 7.0 inch, 907 grams (2 lbs)|
|Hanbit Pad, 7.0 inch, 1000 grams (2.2 lbs)|
|Above-Net TopExec, 8.4 inch, 1190 grams (2.62 lbs)|
|Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium, 7.0 inch, 800 grams (1.76 lbs)|
1024x600 on a 7" screen is great for handheld use. The mouse is a little dissapointing (its not a synaptics pointer but more of a basic joystick) and the keyboard will take a lot of work to get used to.
With the 1.3Ghz processor and Windows XP tablet edition this should be one of the most powerful UMPCs available.
|Ubiquio 711 (711), 7.0 inch, 850 grams (1.87 lbs)|
This is a good solid performer. 1.2Ghz CPU is fast enough to drive Vista. SD card slot, good build quality with high quality buttons and synaptics mouse pointer. Price is competitive. Slightly poor battery life of 2-2.25 hours must be considered before purchase though.
|Ubiquio 702 (702), 7.0 inch, 910 grams (2.01 lbs)|
We've tested a version of this device and found it to be a solid performer. We didnt find it pretty in white so our recommendation is to go for the black. Screen quality is good and the mouse pointer is very intuitive.
|ASUS R2E, 7.0 inch, 960 grams (2.12 lbs)|
