- A slate - to write on and use - that also has a keyboard if I need it - keyboard is full size
- This part's new: a fully native "reading" mode that softens the glare and the light so that when I download eBooks and other things I can read without eyestrain
- This is new as well - extremely lightweight - maybe 2 lbs or less - but with native USB ports - 3 of them - for my printer, external backup, camera, etc.
- Built in standard VGA port - no adapter
- Takes phone calls natively without 3rd party product in that when my phone rings it goes to my phone AND to this device and I can press a button and go into automatic speaker mode (if I want to) or ignore the call
- Operating system fully integrates with built-in native antivirus antispyware antimaleware tight firewall and automatically updates - for no additional cost
- 8 gigs RAM native that the operating system fully accesses all the time
- 500 gig hard drive
- Runs all the apps I have right now plus lots of things built just for the slate
- Mac/PC immaterial - it all runs, even including Office - AND MS Office keeps up with updates and doesn't do the Mac on one version PC on another thing
Oh and it costs $500 fully loaded.
Maybe it's ... on the way?
