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

    Number one plus?

    No.....no lo es estupido....!
    It sort of depends on now you array the numbers. For example, if you array them vertically in ascending order from top to bottom, zero would be the highest number!

    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.

    That's the one thing that Apple does right! IPS displays on everything.

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