    I posted this in the alternatives thread, but due to the feature set I feel this warrants it's own thread.

    Liliputing just posted about the Samsung Series 7 tablet

    Samsung Series 7 tablet features Windows 7 - Liliputing

    11.6" display, Core I5, 4g RAM, 64/128g SSD, up to 7 hours battery life

    Capacitive touch and a Wacom digitizer.

    This is my Slate 500 replacement.

    Post includes a video, at the end of the video is the Wacom reference.

    Looks like something that will compete well with the Asus 121. I am assuming that it will have a fan/sink on the I5. Hopefully, it is a ULV SB I5. That would really boost graphics capability. 7 Hour battery life sounds incredible. I'll have to see that.

    Wacom is nice. And information on the display? The side profile is really slim for something as big as it is, with an I5 and 7 hour battery. Not sure about replacing my Slate just yet, but glad to see some design improvement. Looking forward to a few days of interesting news from the IFA conference.

    This is too good to be true.

    Wacom, Core i5, 7 hour battery life, and a 400 nit display in a Quite small 11.6 inch display,

    I would be very skeptical of the wacom part since Wacom doesn't make 11.6 sensor boards....but that's definitely a wacom pen on the video. Battery life I'm skeptical about, but so long as I can get 3-4 hours I'm good.

    well Ep121....it's been nice knowing you

    Well, I'm impressed! But I'm not sure that I'll be giving up my EP121 just yet...

    Battery life, from what I read, is with the radios switched off. Real life will undoubtedly intervene.

    My only problem is the size and weight. Over two pounds and the size of a binder for letter size paper. Too heavy and too big for me. I'm hoping someone will come out with a tablet where the "7" refers to the screen instead of to the OS.

    Must... have... one (Faints)

    "Battery life is given as 7 hours, which is pretty good for a Windows tab"

    Well.. that's me sold on the idea and I'll be buying the moment it hits the states and importing to the UK. Anyone want to buy a brand new MSI 110w as I'm saving for this instead! Seriously this literally steals any thunder that the EP121 retained with it's 1366x768 Windows 8 ready resolution. Looked damn thin in the video as well (Hope the fan stays off!) I HOPE it takes the Intel 310 as I'm pretty positive that it'll ship with the usual Sandisk slow SSD.

    Can't wait and it's a shame that I'll now not even open the MSI 110w box :(

    :eek: OMG this is ALMOST exactly what I want, except that I want a 1280x800 instead of 1366x768.

    But there are some weird things:
    1. Seems like it has a Wacom digitizer (yeah, that really rocks!!), since it has an eraser, and N-trig doesn't usually. But a wacom digitizer on a screen size lower than 12-inch? Is that possible?
    2. Core i5-2467M can beat Core i5-2557M??
    PassMark - Intel Core i5-2467M @ 1.60GHz - Price performance comparison
    PassMark - Intel Core i5-2557M @ 1.70GHz - Price performance comparison

    I dunno why this is a glossy screen when the other Series 7 have matte displays, but then again this is a 400nit screen vs 300nit on the other two .

    Yes, it has a Core i5 2467M 1.6GHz dual-core quad-thread and can turbo boost to 2.3GHz.

    The weird thing is the wacom digitizer, since wacom never has sensor board lower than 12-inch. But according to the video, it has eraser so it cannot be an N-trig.
