Reviews for the ExoPC Slate

ExoPc tablet gets reviewed
Source: Netbooklive English
Thanks to the HD video accelerator, videos run smooth, including 1080p from Youtube. The overall performance is good, supported by the 2 GB of RAM, and you’ll see pages and apps load up fast. On the downside, the battery drained after 3 hours and 20 minutes and if you’ll run games or videos intensively expect much less. The ExoPC tablet is available for $699.

ExoPC Slate Windows 7 tablet review
Source: Liliputing English
The ExoPC may be the best Intel Atom-powered Windows tablet I’ve tested to date, thanks to its large, high resolution display, accurate touch panel, HD video accelerator, and custom software layer. But text entry is still a bit of a chore, the custom web browser is a bit too basic for my tastes, and the 2-4 second delay when rotating the display is just too long. For $699, I’d kind of hoped for a better experience. Unfortunately, I think it takes a faster processor and possibly an active digitizer to truly get the most out of Windows 7 on a tablet. Both of those things will be available soon from the Asus Eee Slate EP121, but you’ll have to pony up $999 or more for that model. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from testing the ExoPC, Netbook Navigator Nav9, and CTL 2GoPad SL10, it’s that good Windows tablets still don’t come cheap.

Comment

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.

11.6": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1 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.


ExoPC: Canadian manufacturer with low global market share, which focusses on tablet pcs.
