Of all the Atom-powered, Windows 7 tablets we’ve seen over the last year and a half (and boy have there been a lot!), the 11.6-inch ExoPC has been the one we’ve been waiting on. Sure, its specs are similar to the recently reviewed Tega v2 and CTL 2goPad — it’s also got a capacitive touchscreen, accelerometer, Atom Pinetrail processor and 2GB of RAM — but unlike the others the company has put some serious love into its Windows 7 software layer, which we’ve dubbed the Connect Four UI. ExoPC’s also preloaded the tablet with touch apps, built out its own app store and included a Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator to handle full 1080p video. You can clearly see why we’ve had high hopes for the ExoPC ever since we got to check it out at Computex, but does it live up to the promise and provide the more enhanced and finger-friendly Windows experience we’ve been looking for? And is the software stable and robust enough for the average consumer? We’ve spent the last week with the $599 tablet so read on to find out in our full review.
