ExoPC Slate had been one of the most anticipated tablets in 2010. The specs looked pretty much similar to the other tablets in the same price category, but it seems that the company had put a bit too much focus on making it Windows 7 optimized. The tab boasts of some good specs including 2GB RAM, a fast Atom processor, accelerometer, and capacitive touch screen. The app has a high-quality cam that can shoot full HD videos. The company has its own store for apps besides the Microsoft Store. For many, it could be a bit expensive. But, let’s see if it is value for money.
There are some good budget tablets under 10000. You can go through our list of best tablets and choose the correct one for your needs.

Hardware & Performance:
We will not say that Exo PC is different from the other tablets because it looks the same. However, it has made some efforts to make it look visually a little more appealing. They have used high quality, soft plastic for the smooth finish of the outer body. The glass screen looks pretty shiny too and is framed in an impressive bezel. The good thing about this tab is that it has a large screen. With an 11.6 inches screen and HD display, it could be pretty great. But, with a bigger screen, you also get a heavier tablet. It weighs around 2.10 pounds, a little less than 1 Kg, which is definitely not very convenient at all times. You would rather put it on your lap than hold it in the hands while using it.
Thankfully, the tablet is sleek and thus does not add more weight to an already heavy pack. In fact, it is sleeker than many other tablets with Atom processor. In spite of the thickness, there is space for SD card slot, USB ports and the jack for headphone, and a SIM slot.
The tablet packs a powerful, 1.6 GHz Atom N450 Processor by Intel. It is backed by a 2 GB RAM and offers a storage of 32 GB. All of this put together can make for decent performance and experience. Exo PC tablet has been around for more than half a decade and comparing it with the high-end tabs of the recent times would be unfair. But, this configuration can still give many tablets the run for their money. If you are not an extensive multi-tasker, you will find the performance pretty acceptable. You could open a few apps at one time. However, using too much of Flash could slow the tablet down a little.
ExoPC also comes packed with the accelerator called Broadcom Crystal HD. This plays a significant role in streaming or playing the HD content (720p as well as 1080p). You could also send the output to the HD TV and you will not find any performance hiccups.
As aforementioned, ExoPC has a pretty big display of 11.6 inches. The screen is pretty glossy and it’s made better with the bright display. The most amazing thing is that it has the resolution of 1366 x 768, which is significantly better than the 1024 x 600 pixels resolution offered by the other tablets in the same price category. So, if you love to watch HD movies on the go, ExoPC could be a perfect pick for you. But, with such a good display, almost the entire tablet experience becomes better. Even browsing internet feels delightful. Though, there is a bit of problem with the orientation of the screen. The accelerometer isn’t as fast as you might expect and you will experience a noticeable lag while changing orientation. You will also see a flicker but that is common with all the tablets.
ExoPC has made some enhancements to the viewing angle and thus is better than its predecessors. But, if you would compare it with the other tablets in the same category, you may not find it satisfactory. The colors seem to fade very quickly when the screen is tilted. But, this does not mean you will lose the visibility even at a large angle. Two people sitting next to each other can see the screen easily without any quality loss.
Touch Screen of the display is quite good we would say. The capacitive screen offers a good touchscreen response. Navigating within the app or swiping left or right is pretty smooth. You don’t need to press the screen very hard to make it respond; light touches will do. So, in this department ExoPC does a pretty good job and can easily stand in comparison with iPad and other high-end tablets.
The battery is a bit of a problem here. Running HD videos or playing games could deplete the battery pretty fast. Same is the case with multitasking and running heavy apps. You wouldn’t get more than 4 hours of battery life on continuous use. So, you may have to plug it into the power source every now and then.
