Samsung Series 7 Slate goes on pre-order at $1099
The Windows 7 Slate from Samsung is now up for pre-order over at Amazon with a starting price of $1,099. It’s half an inch thick with an 11.6″ display, weighs 2lbs and runs an Intel Core i5 processor.
This is probably one of the most powerful tablets out there (the Asus Eee PC Slate EP121 is also priced at $1,099) and also among the most expensive.
Samsung Series 7 Slate
Intel Core i5 2467M 1.6GHz dual-core
4GB DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 3000
Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Windows 7 Home Premium
With a starting price of $1,099, I don’t think any regular consumer would consider getting one of these. Probably for enterprise use or a niche market. That’s just the entry-level model — there’s the $1399 for the 128GB SSD too.
If this is the future of Windows 8 tablets, I don’t think it will be any successful.
