    This model is not a tablet per se, in the sense that it doesn’t compete with what is known as a tablet (apparently what you are calling a “slate”). Its price, size, and battery life can only qualify it as a “notebook” or “ultrabook”. It’s just too big, heavy, and power-hungry to be practical in a mobile tablet function.
