    not a great deal other than the eq stuff and noise/interference cleanup at a guess, read the hype advertising, its all buzzwords and coolness, not so much tekkie info.

    the HP spiel tho never ever states "beats speakers or beats hardware" only beats audio(tm). their bog standard (pretty good quality) sterio speakers, nothing fancy or beats related.

    Unfortunately it wouldn't be genuine. I mean, the touchpad only weighs a pound and a half and it's -half- an inch thick.

    Not exactly a bruiser . How thin do you want it? 3 sheets of A4 paper? How much lighter can this thing really get? You can save a couple grams going with an ipad 2, but for gods sake, complaining about a device like this weighing 1.5 pounds? Has it really come to this?

    My laptop in 2005 and all it's accessories necessary for use (the GIANT power plug, a cooling pad, etc) weighed just shy of 20 pounds. Now -that- was worth complaining about. This touchpad is an engineering marvel. If it was much thinner or lighter we'd be folding the thing into paper airplanes.

    It's mostly an EQ thing, but it's tuned to the speakers they use. (think Bose, ordinary speakers, crazy housings and software to tune the magic).

    The speakers in the Touchpad are actually quite good compared to other tablets. They have fairly large housings inside for better resonance. Sound coming out of here sounds better then my laptop (XPSM1210) or wife's iPad2. (and even better since applying the audio boost patch).

    I have only picked up an iPad 2 once, and none of the other tablets, so I don't really have much of a basis of comparison. In that light, given the capabilities of the TP and what to me feels like a pretty solid and quality package, I don't find either the weight or the thickness to be an issue. In fact, considering I'm carrying around a touchscreen computer with a wireless Internet connection, one with a pretty decent built-in sound system, and I can fit both it and the wireless keyboard into a standard legal binder and zip it up, I think it's pretty damned petite!

    one of my old laptops, an old Rock Direct XTreme64 weighed a fair old amount as well and the PSU could sink a ship.

    as for the touchpad, who cares if it weighs more than say an ipad, as long as you can hold it with 1 hand and it doesnt snap your wrist its all good.

    Crazy thing: Touchpad is actually thicker than the iPad 1.

    OP, I noticed that too, as soon as I picked up that Galaxy Tab, I was like- I never knew this was possible! It's like paper. ;/

    And I'll tell you another thing, some of those other tablets out there have got the backing material down pat. It actually stops your hand from sweating, while the Touchpad makes your hands sweat. Complete and total fingerprint generator.

    If ever there was a Touchpad2, that plastic backing will be the first thing to go. It's like soap. Only the complete opposite because it generates germs.

    lol, is this real life?

    It's thick and heavy because it's a generation behind the curve, don't take my word for it - listen to the HP CTO

    "We were deploying WebOS on Palm smart phones and on a new tablet that was half a generation or a generation behind the iPad,"

    They're doing it for a reason;

    Touchstone = put it down on the Touchstone
    Wall charger = find cable, push end into port, push end properly into port, put down

    See, 75% easier with the Touchstone. And before you say it, no I don't have a life

    It's the same material used on the exteriors of HP monitors and PCs, so they're making it look like the rest of their products. Material like what was used for the Pre touchstone back cover would have been much better.

    if anyone thinks the touchpad is thick and heavy.............. then you obviously have never had to hold a textbook

    or an xbox. or a tv. or a air conditioner. or a box of shoes. or a guitar. or a home theater speaker. or a tire. or a shovel. or (insert practically everything that isn't a touchpad here)

    wow. really.. thick and heavy? please

    If you've ever felt the Galaxy Tab 10.2, that would silence you. I think something everyone needs to do is just go to Best Buy and get friendly with all the tablets. Spend about 30 minutes with it a day, see what you're getting yourself into.

    The Touchpad is just as good as an experience that I thought it would be.

    Did they do it for the look? The price? It's really slippery..But it looks nice.

    I know it may be "heavy" compared to other tablets, but really if this bothers you, you need to start hitting the gym...
