Obviously, I couldn't miss out on this photographic opportunity, so I grabbed the Medfield tablet out of my room and lined up all of the machines for this one photo. From left to right, we've got the Medfield developer tablet (Android-based), the Samsung Series 7 Slate (running Windows 8 now), a Fujitsu convertible slate (U920p) and lastly an Intel-branded reference Ultrabook. (The latter two also running Windows 8, naturally.)
a chance to poke at a couple of months ago, and the Series 7 Slate before that. The reference Ultrabook was a bit of an oddball, as its accelerometer appeared to be malfunctioning and, as a result, the Windows 8 interface only displayed at a 90-degree angle to right-side. I also noticed what appeared to be a high-powered LED next to the webcam, though I never even attempted to test it. Despite a rather impressive set of specs including a quad-core Core i7 CPU, I found the keyboard throw to be rather shallow and therefore didn't bother playing with that machine very much.
What of the Medfield-based developer tablet and the Series 7 Slate? Well, I hope to bring you a review of the former very soon and am currently toying with the idea of writing one for the latter. As the hardware was actually sold with Windows 7 installed and not Windows 8 (which I loaded onto it), it strikes me as a bit odd to write a review of it as such.
