Windows 7 Slate! Samsung Series 7 Hands-On at CES 2012

Are you craving some Windows 7 goodness in a slate? Samsung is going to answer your cravings with its new Series 7 Slate.

Sporting either an Intel Core i3 or i5 processors with 32, 64 or 128 GB SSD, it's closer to a pretty powerful laptop than just some old tablet. Weighing in just at 1.9 lbs, you're getting a lot of power in a pretty convenient package. It does feel a tad odd, however, that Samsung would be focusing on a Windows 7-based slate when Windows 8 is closing in on release and is built with mobile devices in mind as well as desktops. It's still a nifty looking device, but it may be coming out at an odd time in the OS lifecycle.
