    The Samsung's Series 7 Slate PC has some impressive specs and price comparatively speaking:

    "However, Samsung’s claiming to have brought over a lot of its Series 9 features, such as instant-on and sub 30-second boot times"

    I can make most machines boot in under 30 seconds so with the above I may FINALLY beat the 'off to desktop' time of 15 seconds flat.

    Here is a comparison.

    Samsung’s Series 7 tablet PC competes with the Asus Eee Slate EP121|Tablets Planet

    I still like EP121's screen a bit more (bigger and less narrow). However, if the battery life holds up (I highly doubts it), it might be a winner.

    Note that Samsung is boasting the same fancy features as Asus initially (10 fingers touch, long battery life, etc...), none of those came to true, so I am skeptical.

    I would HATE to sell a brand new in box MSI 110w only to find that the battery life doesn't reach 6-7 hours (4 hours being hit hard)

    <<...if the battery life holds up (I highly doubts it)...>>

    ...I doubt it, too. Based on what I know to date, a six or seven hour battery operating life doesn't compute...

    Battery life seems highly unrealistic. Also this thing has no SD card slot, only micro-SD. Also, what does is mean by audio N/A? Are there no speakers? 3G sounds nice but I figure most people who own tablets have smartphones anyway which you could tether if you were bothered.
