    the iPad looks nicer, but the slate looks like it can handle more things.
    any ideas?

    I would go for the slate between the 2

    OSes make up my decision. I have more confidence in Apple.

    Slate is another tablet that just runs a laptop OS...and those have traditionally failed for everyone except people who need a Cintiq basically.

    So my money is on the iPad.

    If I can plug a USB keyboard into the HP Slate when needed, then I go for HP. Even though a lot of the specs aren't known. It has to be at least 1GHz (unless it's Windows 7 Starter) to run Windows 7.

    The problem just comparing tech specs is...it is just that, tech specs. If you did that with the iPod when it launched, it was a horrible purchase too. But the interface/design/ease of use all made up for that.

    Besides that, basically everything in the slate column is an unknown. How could you possibly decide based on that?

    Looking at the pictures that Nburnes posted in the link it looks like the HP Slate is a watered down version of windows seven which sorta reminds me that the iPhone OS is a watered down version of Mac OS X...

    Nice comparison, the Slate is really tempting to me. I'm pretty sure I read it runs Home Premium somewhere, but correct me if i’m wrong .
