    *click* *click* .. aaand .. *click* .. purchased.
    Now I am an owner of both an ExoPC and an HP Slate. Great. Best one I'll keep, the other .. well, too bad eBay takes so much $$ in fees but then maybe I'll find a local buyer on a mailing list or on craigslist.

    I'll probably get one of these. The combination of multitouch and wacom digitizer is a potent combination.

    I love the form factor and HDMI docking station but for that price you can get a HP TM2t on HP's site for only $30 more.  The biggest downside is that this hardware won't support IE9 accelleration.  Doesn't matter much because I buy consumer devices for all my needs.  Its a real shame that HP won't be releasing a consumer slate based on Windows 7.

    Is the windows 7 version installed in the slate the same as the desktop version? Does this allow installation of wpf 4 and silverlight 4 OOB apps in it??

    @USArcher: Yea because, you know, you can't buy a product becuase its labelled as a 'business' device rather than a consumer device.  Are you retarded?  If you want one buy one, who cares if its consumer or business...

    Furthermore the definition of consumer is anyone who buys a product, therefor your non-sensical distinction between consumer and business products is just that.  If someone buys the product, business or person that entity is a consumer.
