    Hi, I'm thinking of purchasing a Windows 7 Samsung Slate. I am trying to find out if there is a hardware difference between the old one and the new one. Internet searching has not turned up a clear answer. There seems to be little price difference between the older and new ones (by new ones I mean the ones set to come out Nov. 7 2012). Also I would like to know if they have fixed the issue with screens coming off at the corners.

    Here are the main differences, as far as I can tell.

    Samsung Series 7 Slate, Windows 7
    Processor: Intel Core i5 Processor 2467M 1.6GHz
    Screen Resolution: 1336 x 768
    Hard Drive: 64 GB SSD (mSATA) rpm Hard Drive
    Graphics Coprocessor: Intel HD Graphics 3000
    Cameras: 2-megapixel front webcam, 3-megapixel rear webcam
    Additional memory: MicroSD memory card slot
    One USB 2.0 port
    U-HDMI port
    Bluetooth 3.0

    Samsung Series 7 Hybrid, aka ATIV Smart PC Pro, Windows 8
    Processor: Intel Core i5 3317U 1.70 GHz
    Claimed to be more powerful and use less battery than the 2467M.

    Hard Drive: 128 GB SSD
    Graphics Coprocessor: Intel HD Graphics 4000

    Additional memory: Multi-format memory card slot (compatible with SD, SDHC, SDXC, and MMC media)
