So I took the plunge. I jumped right in.
I wanted to inform you of a red hot deal that I myself just took advantage of at the Microsoft store.
Microsoft are selling the EXOPC Windows 7 Slate at the Microsoft Store at a …wait for it…300 dollar discount!
It’s down from $699 to $399.
I just bought one myself and will be upgrading it to Windows 8 when the Windows 8 Beta comes out in February.
This model has:
- An multi-touch display
- 2 GB of RAM allows for smooth multitasking
- 1.3-megapixel webcam
- Wireless 802.11b/g/n connectivity
- A Mini-HDMI port which will let you project high-def content onto your big-screen TV
- An energy-efficient Intel Atom Pineview processor designed for longer battery life
- 1080P video resolution
More importantly for me, it has the 1366 x 768 resolution that the Samsung Slates have.
Those were the ones that Microsoft gave out at the BUILD conference.
Those tablets are between $1000 to $1500!
I have an Ipad 2 but I am getting this because it’s a cheap way to try out Windows 8 this February.
I’ll be using it to review the features of Windows 8 Beta on the site in February.
I’m told the price is going to go back up very soon so I would buy it as soon as you can.
