what, no Itanium processor?
The Atom processor is designed especially for netbooks (and I guess tablet computers) because it's supposed be extremely efficient at using battery life. But then, I don't know how the iPad can still manage to last twice as long.
Sorry, Ronny, I failed to put the little :) smiley after my comment to make clear that it was tongue in cheek. The Itanium is marketed as an enterprise server and high performance chip, and was championed greatly by HP. I mentioned it because it was just in the news that Microsoft and Linux will be dropping their support of the platform, leaving HP out in the cold with it. HP is a great technology company with a great history (including Compaq too), but this HP Slate looks to me like just another good "me too". But, we can't all be Steve Jobs, so no complaint really.
Oh, the Internet. When will it add support for sarcasm tags. You got me.
Ronny, I think my comments settings should apply the sarcasm tag by default.
