Reviews for the Xploretech XSlate R12

82% Xplore XSLATE R12 review: A high-quality rugged Windows tablet, but beware battery life
Source: English
The Xplore XSLATE R12 is properly rugged, and the method of carrying the Companion Keyboard is well thought-out. The keyboard is also a well-made piece of kit in its own right, and the trio of configurable soft buttons will prove useful in the field. However, battery life was disappointing on our Core i7-powered review unit with the 800-nit screen set to 100 percent brightness.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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.

1.34 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

82%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
