    I loved Amipro, I used it to type my first sermons after moving from a Commodore 64 with a dot matrix printer.

    Nice to see you back Rev. Where have you been hiding?

    I've been here all along, talk has been sometimes out of my knowledge range so I've just been listening. But it's always good to see you and Bronky chime in. It takes me back to the HP Slate 500 days.

    Well the ideal tablet is still not here yet....I think it's a deliberate ploy by the ODMs given the fact we have the means and technology to make such a product.
    I wish HP had kept the Slate 500 design and upgraded it with new hardware...we would have had a super mini windows tablet with Wacom of course.

    You are spot on ships - had they kept evolving the Slate 500 with modern hardware, we WOULD be right where we SHOULD be by now...

    Good to see you writing again @revmike...

    I'm glad that they didn't. Ultimately, the Slate 500 design didn't have the chops to evolve into a more optimized form factor. It was an OK step in its time, but that was about all...

    Steve - that's the whole point - Atom was not the solution at that time, but an eveolution of that form factor (as it slimmed down; screen improves; storage improved) would have given HP a game changing 8" device just as it now pioneers the PC Air of ultrabooks...

    Exactly....it's about evolution these days ...I don't see anything revolutionary in the pipeline at the moment.
    We would have moved from the Stone Age to the Iron Age while we patiently wait for the gold stage ...haha...lol.

    I would still be using my Slate 500 if the battery had not given up the ghost by being unable to be charged, that is the reason why I bought the Surface Pro 2, that went to my wife, which ultimately led to the Surface 3 that I'm using now.

    That's very evolutionary..lol.
    Somewhat similar to my route...but LTE is very important to me so had to wait for a Verizon S3 model to purchase.
    I'm happy with it but a little more power is all it needs and a nice Wacom pen would be the icing.
