Windows 7 Tablet Review: A BAD Experience Because of Windows 7

A Windows 7 Tablet Review from Guardian UK.

Unsurprisingly, a BAD experience, all because of Windows 7.

Windows 7 is not meant for tablets or designed as a touch UI. Buttons are too close, Apps (such as email) have confusing controls, Screen blanks out periodically (e.g. while turning the tablet) and the Atom processor used is too slow to keep up.

Although the Novatech nTablet, at 350 GBP, is a great price (compared to the 520 GBP Samsung Galaxy Tab) and has decent hardware, using it with Windows 7 causes an utterly frustrating experience.

Should I Buy

Only if you are willing to tolerate the Windows 7 experience
