Jackets? Hmm...now we have to dress this machine up like a dancing ******! I wonder how many layers ? Then to have to carry it around? There is just no more common sense in the design of machines. In the old days machines were desiged to make work easier . Nowadays, even with sophisticated technology we make extra effort to make work less important if not more difficult. Is that what gadgets are all about? I would fire the design engineer for this brainless design especially if it is being targeted towards business' and enterprise markets.. Who wants to carrry a bunch of jackets to figure out which one to use for a particular job assignment? They had the slate in their hands only to mess it all up instead of making it a beast in the 10" size with a 16:10 form factor. Why HP? Are you really listening to us all? Well, Dell Latitude 10 just went up my ladder of choices. I think they got the idea/concept correct and they'll do really well. I might even preorder one with the special pricing they are offering now on the base model.
