Number 0? -1? This is as stupid as "I'll give 110% effort".

Number one plus?

One plus anything is more than one, so you're no longer #1, you're somewhere between 1 and 2.

That's quite a claim HP...

Could you please start by putting nice displays in your tablets? I'm sick of these poor viewing angle TN panels with dim CCFL backlighting. Not to mention whatever digitizer your using on the Slate 500 doesn't work in natural sunlight, it packs up and because almost completely unresponsive.

Except they're glossy displays which work better as mirrors than as monitors.
