The HP Slate 500? Its got the official badge now, readers. As usual with new product launches, LaptopMemo will cut striaght to the chase and tell you what the HP Slate 500 has to offer: a 1.86GHz Intel Atom Z540 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB SSD and Broadcom’s Crystal HD accelerator for managing heavy 1080p video, an included dock which has an HDMI-out port to hook up to your big screen, and finally an 8.9-inch capacitive touch screen which runs Windows 7 Professional. The Slate 500 also has a bonus Wacom active digitizer (for leisure) and front-facing as well as 3 megapixel camera on the behind.
On one hand, I have to give it to HP for not producing something potentially crappy. But then charging $799 for it doesn’t quite make sense. Even the Galaxy Tab on Verizon is priced cheaper, and that’s saying something.
