    Default Slate Spec's leaked - iPad comparison


    HP Slate to cost $549, have 1.6GHz Atom Z530, 5 hour battery? -- Engadget

    Battery life - sucks
    Processor - sucks
    Size - smaller, thicker, sucks
    Wifi - no 8.2.11n capability, sucks
    RAM - 1GB to run a full version of W7? PSH! slooooow

    Positives:
    Expandable memory slot
    Front facing camera
    HD Video out

    Edit: I would have posted this up in the News section but my write up is kind of crass and bias lol.

    All three of the positives are things I've got little to no use for. I've had laptops with some kind of webcam for the better part of a decade and have never once fired it up. In HD video terms, I hooked up my laptop once for an HD video feed (Satellite was out and I missed Lost). While expandable memory is nice, 64GB is more than enough than I could imagine needing for a purely portable device.

    Not mention the fact that being made by HP automatically makes it a pile of crap.
