HP Elitepad 900

I am the proud owner of an HP ElitePad 900 64GB tablet. Yay! The machine is speedy, responsive to touch and Windows 8 has some innovative features.

Like I am wont to doing, I am going to use this post as a running list of things I like and don't like about Windows 8. I couldn't say enough about the Elitepad device - it's sleek and has heft. Though it looks like another iPad clone, this is a true enterprise tablet - it comes with Windows 8 Pro and features a TPM chip to fully encrypt content. Bravo.

Windows 8 Likes:
1. Share feature
2. IE 10

Windows 8 Dislikes:
1. Could not discover the search feature in the Microsoft App Store
2. The Start Screen does not have a Clock - WTF? Must I lock to tell time?
3. Cannot set the Clock from the Metro UI. My machine thought it was March 7 when it actually is April 11
