Default Samsung Windows 8 Slates: Series 5 and Series 7

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.theverge.com/2012/8/29/3276599/samsung-series-5-series-7-slate-windows-8' target='_blank'>http://www.theverge.com/2012/8/29/3...slate-windows-8</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"We're still a couple of months away from Windows 8 being available, but we're starting to get a pretty good picture of what the first round of devices will look like running the new operating system. Samsung just showed off the upcoming Series 5 and Series 7 Slates - both are tablet and dock combinations that let each device act as a light, thin tablet, and a full-fledged laptop all at once."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1346261524.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" title=" " /></p><p>Looks like the ASUS Transformer concept (tablet + keyboard SECURELY connected) is going to be a feature in upcoming Windows 8 Slates (Tabtop or Laplet?), at least from Samsung with their Series 5 and Series 7 offerings. The 1366x768 resolution Series 5 will be offered as a tablet-only at $649, or a tablet+keyboard combo at $749, with 2GB RAM and a 64GB SSD. The more robust Series 7 offers full 1080p resolution, 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD, and will start at $1199. Each device will also ship with Samsung's "S Pen" for onscreen activity. Arrival date is expected to be October 26, 2012, to coincide with Windows 8's arrival. Anyone besides me think that this keyboard looks an awful lot like a MacBookAir? Not a bad thing, in my opinion.</p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1346262334.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" title=" " /></p><p>&nbsp;</p>
