My Gestalt

Understand the chaotic world by developing meaningful perception through the acquisition of seemingly disparate knowledge.

Collect information in large quantity with precise detail and connect the dots of meaning to form your own picture of the universe.

Act upon it

Knowledge and understanding without action is waste.

Be Grateful

Never underestimate the power of gratitude.

Charity

Forgiveness will make your heart happy. Forgiveness is not about someone deserving it, it's about healing your heart.

ExoPC looking really nice

I continue to search for a viable Win7 Slate. I am really annoyed that I won't have one for a few more months.


Lately I have been carrying around my ANCIENT Toshiba M7 tablet to meetings all day; the weight and battery life are really starting to irritate me.


What I WILL NOT give up...



  • OneNote

  • Pen


Since these are my two very basic requirements, I have a narrower focus than most people when it comes to a Slate.


What I want:



  • ~2 pounds in weight

  • All Day Battery

  • HDMI Out

  • SDHC Slot


Since the previous two I was looking at have been officially cancelled (HP Slate and MS Courier) I think I have settled on the ExoPC.  It appears from the specs that this is my machine.


Sure, I'd love to have a ton of consumer crapware on this (not) from an AppStore, but really I only want to use it for OneNote and watching occassional movies.


I need a pen because I just can't type in a meeting, it's never been practical for me. While it's not speced here, It is supposed to ship with a stylus and since it's windows I can install some palm-rejection software if its not already there.



This thing looks pretty awesome, see the link for Specs. I hope it ships on time in September.
