And who is using the HP Slate 500?
I've been using an HP Slate 500 for over a month for work related to academic and business projects. It runs Window 7 pro and out spec the iPad2 by far. The unit I have gives rock solid performance an par better than most netbooks but with touch and pen interface. I run full MS Office 2010 suite using Outlook as one mail client and Thunderbird as a second. Database applications with locally residing Access files as front end to data tables residing on server work well via mapped drives. When seated in the included docking station that has a HDMI prot, one can connect to projectors for giving PowerPoint presentation. For internet access where WIFI not available I connect the Slate via its bluetooth signal to my smartphone which serves as modem. Given this mobility of an desktop environment, why isn't the product getting the attention of the IT world?
