Gigabyte has been showing off its S1080 Windows 7 tablet at the Computex show in Taiwan.

It comes with a 14.94mm-thick chassis housing a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen LCD, along with an Intel Atom N570, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. It has a USB 2.0 port, USB 3.0 port, SD card reader, RJ-45 jack, 1.3 megapixel webcam, 4,000mAh battery, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and 3.5G modem. It does not weigh much either at 895g.

One of the more interesting things about the gear is that it comes with a multimedia dock. This has stereo speakers, VGA output, three USB 2.0 ports, and audio line-in to the tablet.

Gigabyte's version differs from others in the market because it has a front-loading optical drive which is not seen on docking gear. It comes with a  4,000mAh battery which can be optionally upgraded with a 2.700mAh battery bar that hooks onto the bottom of the tablet

The beast will be in the shops in June for around $700. The dock be sold separately  in August.
