Gigabytes S1080 Windows 7 Tablet Unboxing & Hands-On Video

Gygabyte’s S1080 has now been released in the US for you to snag at your local Sears or ExcaliberPC for $650.

The Gigabyte S1080 is a Windows 7 tablet which is running an Intel Atom N570 dual core processor featuring Windows Home Premium.  Features of the S1080 – a “hot touch” button, scrolling toggles, up and down buttons, power button, volume rocker, SD card slot, right and left mouse click, USB 2.0 & 3.0, Ethernet port, mic jack, two speakers, side fan, SIM card slot, VGA, PSU, docking station port and hinges, 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 320 GB hard drive.

Now, the S1080 requires a built in fan because Atom is not ready to go fanless yet. In terms of the the USB 3.0 port, make sure you turn it off to prevent excess battery drain.  The price is a bit high at around $650, but is well worth it in terms of the specs and processing power.
