And the iPad doesn't seem to be an HP Slate killer either. I've been chatting with a number of HP Slate buyers out there and apparently the damn thing is already a smash hit. HP COMPLETELY underestimated demand and apparently they are only able to make a fraction of what what they can sell. HP's site shows a ship date of early next month but a lot of people are saying they are getting emails saying that there orders are delayed indefinitely. I know a lot of you think the Slate is expensive but $800 for an active digitizer slate with 5 hours of battery life at only 1.5 lbs.is actually remarkable. Fortunately I ordered on launch day and hope to have mine next week (that's what my online invoice is still saying and I've not gotten a sorry-gram from HP) and I'll be posting a review. Can't wait for the iPad folks to rip it a new one while it sells like cheap crack.
