HP Business 12.1″ Tablet KS009UT#ABA Review


19.07.2009

One of the most expected devices of the year is the $800 Apple tablet / netbook, however, this is only a rumor and we might never get the change to see it therefore why wouldn’t you prefer a certainty? Here is the HP Business 12.1″ Tablet KS009UT#ABA that is real, and it will help you unlike Apple’s long-expected tablet.

The HP Business Tablet KS009UT#ABA features a 12.1-inch widescreen WXGA, UWVA anti-glare with Digitizer,¬†Illumi-Lite display which makes the tablet lighter, and more energy efficient.

The display is big enough to allow you to drive your business forward, the processor will allow the tablet to perform great, if 2GB of RAM is not enough for you then you can upgrade it to 4GB, the HDD space should be enough, but I would have preferred a SSD to reduce the noise, the graphics card provides everything you need, while the XP can be replaced with the Windows Vista Business OS that comes in the HP Business 12.1″ Tablet KS009UT#ABA package.
