    Very interesting. For some reason I don't see the this page when I browse or search through the HP SMB store, but I get to it no problem with your link.

    I'm going to give it some thought at least overnight, but I am seriously tempted by the 128 GB model with LTE (G4T14UT#ABA) for $1,009.

    QuickSpecs for the ProPad 600 were posted today. ProPad has a micro-USB according to the document. It also shows some interesting accessories, including a docking station.

    ElitePad 1000 G2 QuickSpecs still not showing up.

    What about keyboard options for both, and battery life?

    The 1000 uses the 900 productivity sleeve. The 600 has a folio/kb. BTW, a pen is listed for the 600.

    What is this "HP Tablet Active Pen" with a P/N TBD for the ProPad? The Atmel Rev1 and G2 pens have P/N's so this must be something different? A different Atmel pen or a different digitizer altogether? Very, very interesting....

    The Elitepad 900 is stunning in battery life easily achieving the 8 to 10 hours quoted. In my Expansion Sleeve I come home from a long day like today where I used it for work all day and notes at Scouts and I still have 100% tablet battery and 29% sleeve battery left. Absolutely stunning. The battery life for the Elitepad 1000 is stated as 10 hours but one of the Youtube videos from MWC stated 10 to 13 hours.

    Yes, I like this config as well. It is $210 more than the $699 version for 2 years of 200 MB of 4G per month ~ or prepaid $8/month. The 128 GB is then $100 more over the 64 GB so this appears to be the best overall value although it would not have the Win 8.1 Pro which is another $90 over that ($1,099).

    Strange thing: among the 5 preconfigured models shown, there is $400 of difference and no change from cheapest $699 and the costliest $1,099 is move up from a 64 GB eMMC and 128GB eMMC storage and maybe a slightly different version of W8.1. Hard to see these superior to SP2 except a little lighter but with much slower eMMc drives and questionable pen. Am I missing something? (except that we're so news starved and anything new gets us salivating! :rolleyes:

    Bingo! 64 bit atom is pretty cool though.
