Reviews for the Viewsonic ViewPad 10pro
Source: PC Mag
Though it does introduce a few improvements to the ViewPad line, like the use of Swype and BlueStacks, and a revamped physical control set, the ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro is still a bit of a disappointment. For the business user, the difficulties of an unresponsive touch screen and limited storage space will not only cause frustration, they may hurt the bottom line. A smarter buy would be the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550, which offers similar performance, but a better user experience, along with a swappable longer-lasting battery.

Even those few users who might benefit from having Windows 7 and Android on the same device will find some serious problems with the ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro. Android runs too slowly to be useful and apps didn't install. The screen is also too dark. Overall, this is a tablet we can't recommend.

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).
Z670: Slow single core processor for tablet pcs that includes the GMA 600 graphics card (with video decoding features) and a DDR2-800 memory controller (max 2 GB).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
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.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
