Review extract:
Handy, versatile tablet/vehicle-mount computer with fully integrated keyboard 
(by Conrad H. Blickenstorfer, with photography by Carol Cotton)
For well over two decades, Winmate of Taiwan has been specializing in industrial display technologies and solutions, providing a large lineup of Panel PCs, digital signage systems, embedded automation controllers, marine grade displays as well as rugged handheld and tablet PCs. But while most industrial PC providers are fairly conservative, Winmate has never shied away from making available to their customers new technologies, new form factors, and new solutions. A case in point is the company's new M101BK, introduced summer 2018.

With the M101BK, Winmate once again broadens its rugged mobile computing lineup. It is both a competent, lightweight tablet based on Winmate's mature M101 platform, and also a vehicle-mount computer suitable for docking in a wide variety of vehicles and able to handle a wide range of input power. And it is also a tablet integrated with an almost laptop-size keyboard.

Weighing just under three pounds as tested and being under an inch thick, Winmate's new keyboard tablet bridges several gaps. That between a dedicated vehicle-mount computer and one that can quickly be released from its vehicle dock and used like a standard tablet. And that between a laptop and a pure tablet.

Billed by Winmate as a vehicle-mount/tablet hybrid, the M101BK is equally suitable for vehicular use and as a mobile tablet. The integrated keyboard may be a big selling point for customers with high data entry loads, especially under adverse conditions. -- Conrad H. Blickenstorfer, July 2018.
