Reviews for the MSI WindPad 110W
Having used the MSI WindPad 110W, I can understand why Windows 7 tablets have gotten a bad rap. The operating system is admittedly more clumsy to use with touch controls than Android Honeycomb or iOS, but I believe some of the hostility might be unjustified. I found the device much easier to use after increasing the DPI and icon size. The WindPad does have a few drawbacks, including its limited battery life, plastic housing and bulky design. Despite those shortcomings, I enjoyed using the device -- perhaps more than the Asus Eee Transformer due to the aforementioned productivity reasons. The Eee Pad Transformer remains an attractive budget option at $400 nonetheless.

AMD Radeon HD 6250: Integrated graphics card in the Ontario netbook processors (e.g. C-50 and C-30) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Tablet version of the AMD C-50 netbook dual-core processor that features a lower TDP than the C-50.

The screen diagonal is used for small tablets.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
