How Green Is The HP TouchPad?
Just recently, I noticed this tablet that HP is promoting as a green option to ultra portable computing. It is called the HP TouchPad.
Now, be reminded that the rise of netbooks and tablets started on the premise that most activities users do on a computer do not require the processing power of regular laptops and desktops. By doing away with these “excess” resources we are able to build lower-cost devices without sacrificing user requirements. That is an improved approach and I agree that it is rather green. The ultra-portable market is generally marketed as green but HP’s TouchPad is the first specific device to bill itself with the label. What did HP do to a device that is already in a supposedly green industry greener? I’m curious.
It appears it is due to HP’s claim that not only does it do what you expect a tablet to usually do but that it can also serve business-related tasks. Also, that you can read Kindle books with it. Three devices in one would really be something. Now if I can just get my hands on one of these for testing.
