Reviews for the Xploretech iX104C5 DMSR-M2
Source: Laptop Mag
The $5,299 Xplore iX104C5 DMSR-M2 certainly isn't cheap. However, it combines extreme durability with solid overall performance and a super bright display -- exactly what demanding rugged tablet users are looking for. While the battery life could be better, the iX104C5 is tailor-made for those who need a tablet that can shoulder the harshest abuse.

Intel HD Graphics 2000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The 2000 is the slower, internally GT1 called, version with 6 Execution Units (EUs).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
The Core i7-640UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.

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 representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
