This thing looks like a clunky piece of crap! I think the i-Pad is dumb, but this thing looks like a fat, retarded sibling that everyone gives a nice pat on the head and says "Oh, you are cool, too!" out of sympathy. This is really where UI design falls flat. I'm putting my money on an Android tablet.

If battery life is >6 or 7 hours, seems like a good idea. Otherwise, :(

It lets the F-Bomb through not a good filter.

Guess our comments are really not that important.

Don't know why more people don't mention this as a feature.  The single best thing about the iPad/iPhone is you don't have to boot it up just to show someone something or use the web.  Windows 7 tablet that I have to wait to turn on is no good.

That's why you use the sleep feature.

Finally a PC article.. I would like to see a Tablet PC with an ULV dual core processor. Core2Duo ULV proc would do fine. A thousand percent more powerful than those middling Atom and Arm processors in the Ipad and Slate. I understand the cost would go up but really how much more considering Core 2 Duo is last generation. Should be pretty cheap now. At least close to the cost of an Intel Atom Processor.

The Tablet PC has more than just the Ipad to compete with. It has convertible Laptops and Netbooks to compete with. I don't see why a tablet can't have a dual core processor. The PC tablet will actually be a machine that can run what you run on your pc not just some enlarged Cell Phone like the stinking IPAD.

After reading the click-thru to the original article, it's a pretty poor excuse for a review in the first place. It barely looks like they got their hands on a working prototype. My review of the original review: "Meh."

I'd buy one. Rather give my money to HP than Apple. Plus it's Windows.

I have a Ipad... I also had a netbook, The netbook ran win 7 starter, and win 7 starter sucked the life out of it, even with a 2gb ram upgrade... I sold the netbook, micrsoft really needs to make a light weight os if there going to compete in the tablet market. I like surfing the net on the Ipad, its quick responsive, and has tremendous batery life, even though it is made by a nazi reshime of a company that locks it down more the fort knocks...

The HP Slate doesn't have a specialty. It's not as full-featured as a netbook because it doesn't have a physical keyboard. And it's not a really good tablet because Windows 7 doesn't bode to well for touching with your fingers. That's why it can't compete with iPad. The iPad and its OS is designed to work amazing with your fingers. And it does what it was designed to do well - entertainment at the tips of your fingerprint in an enjoyable experience.

Damn you mother effing Spam filter..

 

 

Why don't the MaximumPC administrators listen to us when we complain about the spam filter? I've had posts deleted by the admins that complained about the spam filter.

Deleting posts that complain about the spam filter isn't going to make the problem go away. It's just going to make us go away.

 I'd be really good and zippy too. I wrote this post on an ASUS 1201n while playing Fallout 2, making wedding invitations for a friend with GIMP and watching Zombieland.You shoulda upgraded your installation of 7 to Premium or even Pro for the price you paid for that iPad
