I won’t be buying an iPad but I will be buying a Slate/Tablet machine this year


Engagdget has their hands on a HP presentation showing the differences between the ipad and the HP slate. Like we needed a leaked ppt.

There’s talk about it being a chopped up netbook; duh, so do we say any tablet PC’s in the last 10 years have been chopped up laptops? It’s a silly argument.

Performance wise I’ve been turned around by Windows 7 on both my convertible tablet and my low spec’d Pentium M ultra portable. Win 7 is a game changer on these machines and stops me from longing for a useable Linux tablet. So Win 7 should be more than enough for the HP slate, to send emails, browse the web, consume your social media of choice. I have used the Pentium M machine for photoshop – but it doesn’t mean I like it. Seriously, leave the heavy lifting for the home PC, desktop, whatever and use the UMPC’s, slates, <1kg machines for what they’re meant to be used for.

    Your site is really cool to me and your topics are very relevant. I was browsing around and came across something you might find interesting. I was guilty of 3 of them with my sites. “99% of site owners are guilty of these five mistakes”. http://bit.ly/sNpfy8 You will be suprised how fast they are to fix.
