    Now they may actually do so using Windows 8 … presuming the manufacturers don’t want to just use ARM, anyways.

    I think they’ve been doing somewhat better. The dm1 is a damn fine machine, and i do love my new touchpad…

    Good riddance HP. May all your old, solid tech find better more loving homes.

    Of course every year is next year. I’m still waiting for their fuel cell powered laptops that were only a “couple years away” 8 years ago.
