Any tablets with WiDi? Yes!

Q. Are there any tablets with wireless display (WiDi) capability available out there?

A. Yes! While they are relatively uncommon, the main Windows tablet with WiDi that I know of is the Samsung series 7 tablet: Samsung Series 7 XE700T1A-A02US 11.6-Inch Slate (128GB, Win 7 Home Premium): Computers & Accessories

Samsung Series 7 XE700T1A-A02US 11.6-Inch Slate (128GB SSD) lightweight slate computer with full PC capabilities running, the Samsung Series 7 Slate PC (model XE700T1A-A02US) offers all of the features of a full-sized laptop…

There are plenty of Miracast capable tablets and phones out there running Android (Jelly Bean 4.2 supports Miracast natively or AllShare Cast for Samsung), but WiDi is pretty hard to come by in the current generation of Windows tablets! I believe this is mainly due to Windows 8 tablets utilizing Atom CPUs isntead of ‘Core’ CPUs.

Specifically, here are the system requirements that Intel lists:
