Onkyo TW317 Windows 7 Tablet Hands-On Video

December 17, 2010, By Leo Xavier

A hands-on video of the Onkyo TW317 Windows 7 tablet has been spotted online. The device comes with a lot of features, but the first hands-on experience of the device has also brought out some minor problems.

It appears that a guy over at Akihabaranews got the chance to play with the device for a while. According to the reviewer, the TW317 tablet has an excellent build quality, and the device does look and feel great.

The device is huge with its 11.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1366×768, but yet is amazingly thin measuring at 295x195x14mm.

The screen is bright and clear, but it appears that the plastic that is covering it is not made from the best plastic around. When the screen is viewed from certain angles, you will be able to see some “dark spots”.

The tablet comes equipped with a 1.66GHz ATOM N450 CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 32GB Sandisk SSD. And we do agree that these specs might be a bit too light for running Windows 7.

In the video, you will be able to see the slow response time when tilting the screen in order to change the tablet screen rotation. However the Touch panel seems to be doing fine, although it’s not amazingly responsive.

We think that the new device is quite OK. But the company should have thought about equipping the device with at least 2GB of RAM and a better CPU. But unfortunately, the device is only available with the N450 ATOM and will not come with better RAM or battery.

Here’s the video.
