|The EX700 includes a little bit of everything. Good processing power, a USB2.0 port, digitiser, Wi-Di capability, digitiser (for pen) and capacatice layer (for finger) a docking port and keyboard, fast SSD disk and all in a lightweight shell but it's missing things that laptops offer like full-size SD card slots, a USB 3.0 bus and a VGA port. As a mobile PC or a hot-desking PC, the XE700 looks like it can take on a lot of working scenarios though and with Windows 8 it's going to look even better. An impressive full-range tablet PC.|

Samsung XE700 Alternatives
|Microsoft Surface Pro, 10.6", 907gm|
Microsoft's Surface Pro is likely to give the tablet category a good boost through the marketing and branding and this version of the Surface will be a true desktop-capable device. At 900gm it's one of the lightest Core-based tablets and the 10.1" screen also makes it highly portable. A digitiser layer, FULLHD resolution and keyboard accessories only make it more interesting. We'd have preferred to see a full size SD card slot although the SDXC slot will be useful in expanding storage space.
|Microsoft Surface Pro 3, 12.0", 800gm|
Microsoft have taken the Surface 2, increased the screen size an reduced the weight making it a leading example of tablet engineering. The 12-inch, 800 gram tablet won't be aimed at casual users but with the included digitizer it will appeal to creative types. Pricing matches its pro-level specifications. Starting at $799 it's 'accessible' but if you're looking at 8GB RAM, Core i5 and 128GB of SSD you'll be forced to take the 256GB model at $1299. Great engineering and a perfect device for a lot of creatives but not exactly your mainstream laptop-replacement, especially as similar performance can be had in an Ultrabook for a much lower price.
|Sony Vaio Tap 11, 11.6", 780gm|
The Sony Vaio Tap 11 is, at launch, the lightest 4th-Gen Core-based tablet available although models start with a slightly cut-down Pentium version. Great screen, included keyboard, 3G/LTE options and a good entry-level price.
|Microsoft Surface Pro 2, 10.6", 907gm|
|HP Elitepad 1000 G2, 10.1", 680gm|
|Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, 10.1", 599gm|
The Lenovo ThinkPad 10 is a 10.1″ tablet, of just 10mm thickness. It is based on Intel's latest Atom Clovertrail platform and sports up to 10 hours of battery life. There is an optional stylus for use with active digitizer for enhanced accuracy while taking handwritten notes.
|Lenovo Thinkpad 10, 10.1", 595gm|
Aimed at professional users and built to be a very lightweight 'tablet-first' 2-in-1 the Lenovo Thinkpad 10 offers a high level of specification for a Baytrail-T tablet. 64-bit OS, 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD along with a range of accessories and optional digitizer layer. The Lenovo Thinkpad 10 isn't a low-cost tablet but it's a flexible and high-quality choice among 10-inch mobile Windows tablets.
