HP Windows 7 Slate video surfaces

Real? Fake? A video on YouTube shows a purported Windows-based HP tablet in action.

Ah yes, the on-again, off-again HP Slate running Windows 7. Before CES, it was a buzz-worthy expected product, but its brief appearance in Steve Ballmer's CES keynote left some rather disappointed. But a new video making the rounds on YouTube shows what might be the HP Slate in action, running Windows 7.

The video (below) shows both a look at the supposed Slate's hardware, and what it's like running Windows 7. The tablet looks to have something around a 7-inch screen, judging from its size relative to the narrator's hand. It's hard to say for sure if the video is legit, but at first glance it seems convincing.

Keep in mind that, although it looked for a while that HP's Windows-based slate was dead--especially given that HP bought Palm--the company confirmed last month that it's working on both Windows-based and WebOS-based tablets.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
