August 2011 Update
1.Great news Microsoft appears to be hearing the cry's of the people to create an amazing tablet user interface. Check out the youtube titled "Building "Windows 8" - Video #1." The rumor is that Microsoft will try to make windows 8 compatible with machines running windows 7. The key issue with this HP Tablet is the screen resolution. From Wikipedia "The new interface is primarily designed for 16:9 screen resolutions, with 1366×768 and larger screens able to display two Windows 8 applications. 1024×768 screens can display one Windows 8 application in full-screen, and 1024×600 screens can only use the traditional Windows desktop." The HP slate runs 1024 x 600 as its native resolution but it can run 1024 x768. So the hope is that the HP Slate will be able to run windows 8 and the future software that will be written for windows 8.
2. Increase the scroll bars (making them fatter) can help improve the windows 7 user interface. Sometimes the scroll bar is covered by the leather case but by making the scroll bar fatter you can move up and down web pages a little easier.
Right-click on desktop, select Personalize.Click on "Window Color" and then "Advanced appearance settings." In he drop-down list choose scrollbar (or click on the scrollbar in the picture) and finally change the size. Check the entire drop-down list for the items you wish customize by size and fonts.
3. Swiftpoint SM300 Laptop Mouse works well with the tablet. It is small, comfortable and portable. The rollerball allows for better scrolling with large documents and more intense work. Again, just plug and play usb device.
4.Rotating your screen 180: You can switch horizontal sides so that the AC Plug is on the top of the device instead of the bottom when charging.

We originally wanted to get an iPad -- we wanted portable internet browsing and an e-book reader (ie, Kindle), the kids wanted to play touch screen games, and we wanted to be able to stream YouTube videos. However, we also wanted to be able to video chat (using Skype). My wife also wanted to be able to manage her photos (from camera's SD memory card). We also wanted to be able to access web sites with Flash content. And I wanted to be able to print to any printer (not just the very few iPad AirPrint-enabled printers, which we don't own). And it would be nice to be able to install the full Office suite.

This is the only device that meets all of our needs! It's also nice to have the USB connectivity (for DVD drive, direct printers, 3g/4g card, etc.). And we have the "power" button set to put the computer to "sleep" (as opposed to turning off the device), which gives us the "instant on" capability. And we love the included dock's HDMI port, for streaming any video content to our TV!

We did note that the iPad has a smoother pinch-zoom effect than the Slate, and the iPad has a cool flip-animation when turning from portrait to landscape (the Slate just switches the view without any nifty animation). But these are mainly cosmetic and totally worth giving up for all the extra capabilities of the Slate!

One thing that would be nice is if the Slate had a longer battery life. Seems like it's about half the life of the iPad, but it's not bad -- over twice as long as any laptop that we've ever owned. Based on our casual use profile, it gets us through the day (possibly 2) - no problem as long as one is accustomed to popping it in the dock to charge (before bedtime).

Again, it's the best tablet on the market if you need to do more!

Verified Purchase
If you like games, ipads and androids, don't buy this. If you are a professional who uses windows and microsoft office solutions, this is incredible. A full fledged PC. Earlier models had poor battery life, however now that the harddrive is solid state flash drive and not one with moving parts, the battery lasts for considerable use. My primary desire was to have a slate that would do great with handwriting recognition. This is amazing, my handwriting is so bad that I can not even read it some days - this slate figures it out extemely well. I could not be more satisfied. PLEASE READ ON FOR UPDATE

1/6/13 Update - I have been using this for some time. I still love it. However, there has been one major frustration and it has to do with the internal digitizer and the pen. The digitizer is inside and it is made by N-trig. The only pen I have and only one I have found to be compatible is the manufacturer supplied pen. I have replaced my original pen with another factory pen, I have been certain to keep all drivers updated, and I have optimized all settings and still the problem continues. I will try to describe it but it is a little difficult to describe. Quite often the slate and pen think you are trying to input when you are not. Say you are hovering over the screen with the tip of the pen 2-3 inches away, the slate starts receiving signals from the pen and you can easily click an icon, drag and drop something, highlight something, etc when you do not want to. It is so bad that I don't even use the pen anymore which means I do not have the handwriting capability that I bought it for. I have yet to find any other pen that works because it has to be a capacitive pen compatible with the N-trig digitizer. It is still an awesome full powered PC and I use it all day 5 days a week for work. I still recommend it, but on the basis of overall and not for the pen or for handwriting recognition. Changing rating from 5 stars to 3.
