Making a Windows 8 Slate

Back when Windows 8 was shown off at the Developers conference someone I work with mentioned it in a meeting, I went into depth about what I knew about it which somehow lead me into being the person spearheading a project of trying to get Apparatus to buy a Slate device we can install Windows 8 on. I went back and forth in some emails with our CTO a couple times about getting a device and keeping cost low. This ended up with us looking at the HP Slate 500 mostly. I noticed that the requirements document for Windows 8 was released and found out that the minimum resolution for a Windows 8 Slate would be 1366 x 768 looking at the technical details of the HP Slate 500 mentioned it’s max resolution of 1024×768.
