Reviews for the CTL 2goPad SL10

CTL 2goPad SL10 Windows 7 Slate PC review
Source: Liliputing English
The CTL 2goPad SL10 is probably the best Windows 7 tablet I’ve used so far, thanks to its sturdy build quality, attractive design, and responsive capacitive touchscreen display as well as helpful buttons on the side of the case. Unfortunately, it’s still hampered by a slow processor, low resolution display, and the fact that Windows 7 simply wasn’t designed from the ground up for touch input on this type of device.

For $499, the 2goPad is a more compelling Windows slate than the Netbook Navigator Nav 9 or the Archos 9PCTablet, but that's not saying a lot. Sure, its capacitive touchscreen provides better accuracy than those slates' resistive panels, and it video conferences quite well. However, this tablet's short battery life and heavy weight make this a poor device for media consumption. And the pre-loaded EasyBits Quick skin can't hide Windows 7's inherent touch flaws. If you need to run full-fledge Windows apps, and you can live with only a few hours of endurance, the 2goPad is worth a look. But overall, we're still waiting for a Windows slate we'd recommend.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N450:

Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.9 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


CTL: US-American company, founded in 1989, which focusses computers and markets its own laptop brand with low market share.


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
