CES 2011 Windows 7 Booth Tour



ms CES 2011 Windows 7 Booth Tour



At the Windows 7 booth, Microsoft showed one of some of the new Windows 7 laptops, tablets, and everything else in between. Below are a few of the nicest products we saw. There’s the Acer Iconia laptop, which substitutes the keyboard for a full sized multi-touch display, Samsung’s ultra thin 9 Series Notebook, Asus’ Eee Slate EP121 tablet, and the Dell Inspiron Duo 10″ Tablet/Notebook combo.

Asus Eee Slate EP121 Tablet

The Eee Slate is a 12.1 inch tablet that runs Windows 7 Premium and features Core i5 processor. The screen supports capacitive multitouch finger gestures, but also comes with a built in stylus. It features a 1280×800 resolution, 32GB to 64GB of storage, 2GB to 4GB of RAM, and a 2 megapixel front facing camera with flash. All the features on the device seemed pretty zippy during the quick demo. The device felt pretty heavy, way heavier than an iPad, but considering it’s really a computer with an identity crises, it is not too bad. It will be available first quarter of this year for a price starting between $999 and $1,099.

Acer Iconia Laptop

It was going to happen eventually, and Acer is one of the first to do so. Their new Iconia laptop is a true touchbook and has dual 14″ touch screen displays and no keyboard. The screens are covered in gorilla glass, a durable scratch-resistant glass. Iconia is running Windows 7 Premium with proprietary Acer software to offer support for the second screen and on-screen keyboard. It weighs 6.1lbs and features 8GB of RAM, a Core-i5 processor, a 750GB hard drive, and HDMI out.  A 10 finger tap on the bottom screen will bring up the on-screen keyboard. We should be seeing the Iconia soon, maybe as early as this month.
