The ExoPC is an 11.6 inch slate computer with a high resolution 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 32GB SSD. It runs Windows 7, but includes a unique user interface that runs on top of the OS making it easier to launch and close applications, as well as flip between then when you’re using your fingers instead of a mouse. You can click a button to get to the default Windows 7 user interface though, and the ExoPC can run virtually any Windows app.
The company has promised to send me a review unit eventually, but it looks like Engadget’s Joanna Stern got her hands on an early model. How early? The ExoPC’s custom on-screen keyboard doesn’t actually work yet, although you can use the default software keyboard that comes with Windows 7.
On the bright side, she seems pretty impressed with the ExoPC software. The tablet also has a Broadcom Crystal HD video accelerator, which allows it to play 1080p HD video without a problem, as well as 720p streaming Flash video.
On the down side, like most other sub-$1000 Windows slates on the market today, it looks like you’ll be lucky to get 4 hours of battery life out of this machine. Visit Engadget for more details.
