    I'll wait to see reviews when the device is actually available to consumers.

    Courier is the runner up. Even though its still a "concept", I like the idea of a microsoft vs Apple showdown

    if ASUS were to make an x86 tablet running windows/linux, they could use SHE (super hybrid engine) software to make the battery last (newer ASUS netbooks have 10+hr battery life). i think they are going ARM though (which is the better route). tablets dont need full blown OS's like windows on them. id much prefer 10hr life vs 4-5hrs in terms of this HP Slate.

    And neither am I. HP fails, I have said that for years ever since my first product from them failed.

    I actually like HP's products; I've only bought desktops from them and Dell. Dell's fail like clockwork every 2-3 years. My HP desktop still works (it's retired, but it works). I even bought a gaming desktop from them. I own two of their netbooks (mini 1000 and 311). Both are awesome.

    But this looks like a fail. Windows 7 (which I love, I really do) should not be on a touchscreen device. Edit Linux (they have their own Linux OS, it shipped with the Mini 1000 if you ordered it that way). Put that on there; it was good looking, fast, and made the battery life awesome.

    And people wonder why everyone was so excited about Apple's iPad. This proves why Windows-based tablets failed to catch on.

    agreed.
    windows 7 should not be on a touchscreen device. its just not going to work. touchscreen devices need something simple and effective and that is the iPad.
    the courier is great feature wise, but i think it will fail simply because it runs windows 7.
    IMO, tablets with windows 7 dont work because windows 7 is such a powerful OS and it needs a PC or a laptop and not a tablet.
