I'm sure many are thinking about crap like this, and I hope people aren't too annoyed by this thread, but here goes: These are some ideas on how to improve the next tx series tablet from HP: -Include a GPU that definitely-for-sure has its own dedicated memory. No specific models with that sideport nonsense. Just give us at least 256MB of honest to goodness GDDR3 ram or something, jeez. -Passive digitizer to feature multi-touch. This should be a given, as it seems to be all the rage, and has many practical uses, as well as being very good for longevity of the system come windows 7. Keep the active digitizer. We need it for pressure sensitivity and better inking. -Move the volume control rocker to the screen. This way we can change our volume levels even in slate mode without fumbling at the bottom right hand corner of the screen. -Possibly make the volume control analogue like the toshiba laptops. In my opinion this is very convenient, as you can adjust exactly how fast or slow your volume level increases/decreases. -Make it an option that the passive digitizer turns off as soon as the pen is 'clicked' out of it's dock, to completely avoid the dreaded writing with your palm. -Include some GOOD proprietary software that makes sense to use with our laptops. I'm looking at something like the touchsmart pc. -Make the keyboard sturdier. It's not that it's bad, but the keys can get a little wobbly. -Make the swivel go 180 degrees either way. Not just clockwise. I know this would be harder to make, but it not only adds convenience, but if you want to partially swivel the screen either way to show a colleague something, it facilitates it. -Make a backlit keyboard. Please? I dunno, it would be kinda cool. -Make a dedicated switch for all the LEDs. -Get rid of Quickplay. It sucks if there's no quickplay direct. -Option for Blu-Ray Drive. -Add a 4-pin firewire port. -For CTOs, and some pre-built models, include a higher end webcam. The current one is crap. To be fair, most built in webcams are crap though. -Include better microphones (more sensitive) -Possibly have DVI-I (both digital or analogue signals) out instead of VGA, or HDMI instead. -For chrissakes, please re-think the chassis design. The current one has like a million different little grooves that BEG to have crud get into them. SMOOTH THE CASE OUT. I'd love it if the lcd were flush or almost flush with the bezel. -Same goes for the fingerprint reader. Try to level it with the bezel. For the same reason. -Okay, this next one is more of a dream feature, but I'd love to have an integrated ATSC tuner. Coupled with a GPS receiver and some nity proprietary software, not only can the tablet be used as a GPS device, the signal would triangulate your position in the world, and if internet is also available it would interface with Vista Media Center and tell it the proper location, automatically syncing local Digital TV listings and giving you proper channel layouts. Shuddup, I think it would be nifty. -Oh, also, give us a good On screen keyboard for slate mode. The windows one sucks. Okay, and that just about ends this post. If you read it, comment on it if you like. Heck, add your own. Why not?
