Tablet Packs Windows 7, Core i7, and Hefty Price

Still, for some people, money is no object, and for them, we have the Motion Computing J3500, which packs Intel's Core i7 processor, an ultra durable exterior (with the same Gorilla Glass as the iPhone 4) and Windows 7.

Full specs include a 12.1-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass and dual pen and touch input; the choice of either Core i5 or Core i7; a 160GB HDD or a 64GB or 128GB SSD; up to 4GB of RAM; a 3-megapixel camera and Windows 7 Professional. Geared towards industries like construction and health care, the J3500 also meets all MIL-STD-810G and IP-52 ratings to ensure protection against bumps, drops, rain, and other nasty conditions you wouldn't dream of subjecting your precious iPad to.

Ready for the price? It starts at $2,299. If you can afford it, it's available through Motion Computing's Channel Resources page.

    ... iPad is way better and functional... why you need a i5 or i7? To do what? Play Crysis? For that amount you can by 4,5 iPad's, write an app that is useful in given situation... on the other hand... if the brand exists, that means they have a customer base... by the way, i use PC...

    I have a feeling most of the cost of the device has to do with it meeting MIL-SPEC. Usually that is not a cheap feat and require that this thing take a beating, almost quite literally and keep on functioning. There will be no dropped tablets with broken screens (more than likely) and you can use it in the rain, the desert and probably in arctic conditions, though I wonder if it has a screen heater to keep the LCD functioning at cold temps....

    Sounds like one tough tablet that will last a long time...

    Steve Jobs is kicking himself that he didn't set the iPad at that price point

    I think you missed the point... I don't think this was meant to compete with the i-pad or be your normal tablet computer. This is to be on a level WELL above an ipad. Thats where you missed the MIL-SPEC rating... Go take your ipad out into the pouring rain and use it with out an umbrella or hell make it a Hurricane.... then lets take it to the desert where there is sand....

    Then lets connect some external devices as I need to load on some major applications that I can't download at less than 3G speed because it would take 4 days....

    This is meant to be kicked around, abused, dropped, used in open weather, and probably has USB ports or maybe even sealed SD card ports to make things easy.

    This isn't meant to be compared to the iPad...

    Just another apple lover showing his love for the device which is nice, but when it comes down too it, in this household the first month everyone wanted to play with it and use it... and now it sits more on the coffee table than in use....

    Our iPhones get more use than our iPad, and I have to say in my haste to have the iPad, I wasted 599 dollars....

    i could do with one of these, would be much easier to use when i'm up and about compared to a laptop and i could use it while i'm walking.

    With the Ipad, your forced to use your finger(s) for everything, and the screen wont work with a stylus (SORRY FOR COMPARING THE TWO!) but with this thing, it's all guud.

    (Don't even get started about battery life :o) Ipad kicks this thing's a** when it comes to battery.
