PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Engadget has managed to get hold of a very interesting internal presentation slide from Hewlett-Packard which compares Apple's iPad to HP's very own Slate. Since we didn't yet know anything about the Slate's specifications, this one is pretty revealing. While that's interesting in and of itself, the slide is also interesting in that it illustrates so well what sets Apple apart from companies like HP.

SSD and Windows 7

I has a Toshiba NB205 with almost same specs.

Windows 7 was a dog on this system, I wiped the hard drive and installed Haiku-OS, and the system runs fine.

Wait, there`s more. I later installed an Intel 80GB-25M SSD, Haiku-OS maybe at most doubled in access speed. Windows 7, a whole new ball game. It must be at-least 5-8 time faster in boots, programs load in a snap, and general file access is not longer a waiting game.

NEAR ZERO LATENCY MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE FOR WINDOWS 7.

Since this tablet also includes a flash drive I expect this tablets to run fine.
