    Agree with all your points there. Especially wacom + matte display.

    Agreed. I like the Elitepad form factor. Put Wacom or Ntrig in it, matte screen, etc. And it would be very interesting. Who knows? Though I have to say, given HP's history on tablets, I'm less then sure.

    I'd like to see HP release an awesome Tablet PC....but I find it unlikely to happen. :(

    I would agree with what you said, and would also like to add a full size SD port on the tablet itself.

    Sadly, that would only solve 1/9 of the problems....

    Well HP has finally showed off their fanless haswell tablet the Spectre 13 X2. There is limited info on it.

    HP has also revealed a 13-inch tablet, the Spectre 13 x2, that uses Intel's new ultra-low-power Y-series 'Haswell' processors for fanless designs. Although the system is large and heavier than a typical 13-inch Ultrabook, it operates as either a tablet or as a laptop when docked into its keyboard accessory.

    Like the Envy 17, the Spectre 13 x2 is encased in aluminium, and has a choice of specs that includes various Haswell CPUs, 4 to 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of storage. HP claims that, despite the 13-inch display, the system will deliver around 7.5 hours of battery life, but declined to mention how hot the system would run without a fan. The dockable tablet will be available on October 16th, with prices starting at $1099.99.

    HP outed a lot of new gear today, and among the touchscreen devices it introduced, the new Spectre 13 x2 is billed as the first Haswell-powered tablet that doesn't need a fan for cooling. That probably means that the elegant Sony Vaio Tap 11 still has a tiny fan behind its vents.

    It's a bit of a stretch from HP to call the the HP Spectre 13 x2 a tablet, as it sports a huge detachable 13.3" Full HD display part, and an aluminum keyboard dock to go along with it. The processor and storage are in the tablet half, though, so you can just grab it and go, using the full power of Windows 8.

    When you need long typing sessions or extra ports, you just plug it back into the keyboard dock, which sports extra battery juice, two USB 3.0 ports, a full HDMI one, and an SD card slot, while the screen part only has a microSD slot, and 64 Gb or 128 GB of internal memory.

    HP cites long 7.5 hours of battery life, which can be expected from a Haswell machine, but the most important part here is that Windows 8 will run cool and silent on a fanless Full HD tablet, albeit a giant 13" one. Expect it to ship October 16th from $1099.99 and up.

    HP Spectre 13 x2 is the first fanless tablet with Haswell, runs Win 8 on the hush
