As demonstrated in the video below, the really awesome thing about a Windows tablet (Windows 7 or Windows 8) is having a full operating system that can run full Windows programs with all of their power and complexity in a mobile form factor.
Whether you want to run CAD, BIM, GIS or any other software that comes with it’s own TLA (three letter acronym) you’ll find that it is just so much quicker and easier on a full OS tablet than a dumbed down touch only version. Of course with Windows 8 now in the fold you can have both the dumbed down touch version and the complex full OS version with you at all times.
The Motion F5t is perfect for the BIM (Building Information Modelling) job. It is a rugged field tablet with an generation 3 (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16Gb of DDR 3 RAM and 256Gb SSD. In other words, there is not a more powerful mobile slate tablet available.
And, like the buildings that the Motion F5t is used to manage, it’s built to last for years. There’s a lot to be said for that!
If you only use the best tools for the job, then the Motion F5t is where you start.
