HP Slate 500 and NAV 9 Slate Windows 7 Tablet PCs are on Sale
Buy Tablet from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

The first Windows 7 Tablet got waved around in front of us back at the CES 2010 by Steve Ballmer. HP finally unveiled the pricing of their first Windows 7 Tablet PC last month. Now you can buy the HP Slate 500 Windows 7 Tablet online on for $799.99.

HP positions the Slate 500 as business tool and not targeting consumers to avoid competing with the iPad.

The HP Slate 500 features an 8.9-inch with 1024x600px (some apps can use 1024x768px) screen, 1.86Ghz Intel Atom Z540 CPU at 1.86Ghz, 2GB RAM, 64GB SSD, 3MP camera, Webcam and Wi-Fi. The HP Slate 500 comes with handwriting recognition software and weighs 1.5lb.
The HP Slate 500 can be compared with the 64GB iPad Wi-Fi, which sells for $699. It would have been smarter by HP to match at least the price of a comparable iPad.

There is actually another Windows 7 Tablet on the market. The Nav 9 Slate PC from Netbook Navigator start at $699.99 on Netbook Navigator store.

Features of the Nav 9 Slate PC include 8.9-inch resistive touchscreen with 1024x600px, Atom N280 at 1.66Ghz, 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD (up to 64GB), Wifi, 1.3MP camera and it weighs 2 pounds.

The HP Slate 500 is a better deal compared to the NAV 9. In general I recommend though the iPad over the current Windows 7 tablets. You can also look into the Galaxy Tab Android Tablet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
