70% Samsung Series 7 Slate 700T review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
With its sleek lines and alluring finish, the Samsung Series 7 Slate 700T is the most attractive Windows 7 tablet going. It’s also the most powerful, and the one with the best accessories thanks to its included Wacom stylus, media dock and wireless keyboard. Unfortunately, it suffers from some build quality issues, its otherwise gorgeous PLS screen doesn’t have the ideal aspect ratio for a tablet, and despite Samsung’s enhancements, Windows still isn’t a finger-friendly OS. However, if you need the productivity only Microsoft’s system can provide, or if you’re a designer/artist looking for a mobile digital solution, it’s the best option currently available.

Windows 8 Tablet: Hands On
Source: PC World English
While Windows 8 has a lot of work to do in power management, so too does Intel. Hopefully, we'll hear more news about forthcoming low-power chips from Intel's Developers Forum this week, and Intel will be able to ramp up its game to make fast, computer-like tablets like the 700T viable when Windows 8 is ready to launch. And of course, the past three complaints may be solved outright by the use of ARM chips inside a Windows 8 tablet. But as it stands today in the Samsung 700T preview unit, Windows 8 is a severe disappointment compared with the quiet, 10 hours (roughly) you can get with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 or an Apple iPad 2.

The Samsung Series 7 Slate is a sleek and powerful piece of hardware that will serve you well if you can bear its relatively high cost, and you can't wait for the wave of Windows 8 tablets due to arrive later this year. If you need to run Windows programs without compromise, this is the tablet for you. If you need a Wacom digitizer, this is the thinnest and lightest package you can get it in. Just keep in mind that to get that power, you must put up with some fan noise and heat--and a high sticker price.

80% Samsung Slate PC Series 7 Review
Source: T Break English
Priced at AED 4999, the Samsung Slate PC Series 7 is certainly not cheap and more than twice of what you could get an iPad or an Android based tablet for. But then again, the Slate is a full blown PC and not a cut-down version of an OS. However, the OS is not the most tablet-friendly OS that exists which is the real dilemma here. Samsung has done a pretty good job with the hardware but until Windows 8 comes out, you’re better off with an Ultrabook that has a keyboard and Mouse attached with it making it much more Windows friendly. Those willing to be a bit daring can certainly try out Windows 8 Consumer Preview which increased the usability of the Slate tremendously but brings itself the issues that any beta would.

This is one of the nicest Windows touch machines we've seen, and it's ideal for anyone who needs a tablet PC for entertainment or work and is prepared to pay for it. It's light, fast, easy to use, and with a sensitive touch screen - and it's a full desktop class PC wrapped up in a tablet shell. It's no wonder Microsoft choose this as the basis of its Windows 8 demonstration hardware, as it's ideal for both today's and the next generation of Windows - with support for all of Windows 8's key hardware specifications.

It’s likely that more tablet computers have hit the streets in the past two years than in the previous decade. But tablets have been around for years — they just didn’t always look like the iPad.

80% Samsung Series 7 Slate (700T1A)
Source: PC Mag English
The Samsung Series 7 Slate fills the nebulous gap between small under-powered Windows tablets and the fully-featured convertible tablet PCs that were popular in years past. When packaged with Samsung's superb dock and keyboard bundle, the Series 7 Slate provides an effective Windows system with the freedom and convenience of the newest breed of tablets. And unlike convertible PCs, like the Editors' Choice Lenovo ThinkPad X220, the Series 7 Slate does it all while being lighter and slimmer. If you need the productivity of a Windows laptop and the ease and convenience of a grab-and-go tablet, the Samsung Series 7 Slate PC may be exactly what you're looking for.

100% Samsung Series 7 Slate
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The Samsung Series 7 Slate is definitely one of the best slate form factor Windows 7 tablets to hit the market. It packs plenty of power thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU and Intel HD Graphics 3000 that trounce Atom-based tablets from HP and Fujitsu. The display is pleasing despite the extreme gloss, and colors are better than life (which might not be a plus for graphic artists). The touch experience is the best we've experienced from a Windows 7 tablet, and we weren't stymied when accessing menus and smaller control elements like the "x" close box at the upper corner of windows. Samsung's launcher makes the tablet friendly for those who are used to iOS and Android tablets. The Series 7 Slate should be Windows 8 ready since Microsoft supplied this tablet to Windows 8 developers a few months back. If you need a Windows tablet, we can easily recommend the Samsung Series 7 Slate. Just watch out for the display lifting issue in early production runs.

60% Samsung Series 7 Slate PC (XE700T1a-A03US) Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Android and iOS tablets get most of the attention these days, but there's still a market for Windows-based slates. The $1,349 Samsung Series 7 Slate PC is certainly worth a look for business users. Its Core i5 processor has more than enough power to take care of your productivity needs, and Samsung's touch-friendly interface and responsive capacitive screen making using Windows 7 less of a pain than other Windows tablets we've tested. We also like that Samsung includes a keyboard, dock, and digital pen at this price. However, this costly slate has a large and heavy design, the fan is noisy, and lag still creeps in here and there (such as when rotating the display and opening touch apps). Most users will want to wait for the debut of Windows 8, which was designed for tablets. In the meantime, the Series 7 Slate PC is a good, but not great, choice for mobile professionals.

Tablet + Notebook = Slate PC? Samsung aims to unite the best of the notebook and tablet worlds with its new Series 7 tablet. To this end the Windows Tablet gets a docking station and keyboard and runs some touchscreen-optimised programs. Is this enough to convince professional users to part with 1300 Euro?
