Samsung’s newest non-Galaxy Tab tablet is now available for pre-order online.

Called the Slate 7, the tablet will be part of the handful of tablets that run Windows 7 Home Premium or even Professional, depending on user configuration. Thus, the “7” in the name is in reference to the supported operating systems and not to its 11.6-inch screen.

As was announced early last month, the Slate 7 uses an Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5-2467M CPU, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD and front-and-rear cameras. According to laptoping, the system scores a 4.5 in the Win7 Experience Index, earning 5.8, 5.9, 4.5, 5.4 and 7.5 in CPU, RAM, Aero, 3D and storage, respectively. These specs alone put the Slate 7 in an entirely different league compared to all the other ARM-based tablets currently in the market.

Connectivity options are also plentiful as users will be able to utilize wireless-n, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 3.0, mini-HDMI, microSD and a full-size USB 2.0 port. Overall, the 1.89 pound (860g) tablet is 12.9mm (0.508 inches) thick and will supposedly last up to 7 hours before hitting low battery.

With specs this impressive, the tablet will of course not come very cheap. Amazon is currently accepting pre-orders for $1349, easily pushing the tablet into its own pricing category. As for as release dates go, Samsung has yet to officially announce when the Slate 7 will begin shipment in the U.S.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
