    Windows 8 and HP

    Posted: 28 Oct 2011 06:34 PM PDT

    Hi there! I’m Meg Whitman. I can do just about everything, like run for public office or be a CEO! I’m just not particularly good at any of them.

    Meg Whitman, the former eBay CEO who recently made headlines with her failed campaign for governor of the Golden State, is now seated as the head of HP. When asked about HP's foundering PC division, of which the rumors about a shutdown have been put to rest, she gave a little information. As the team at Windows8Center predicted previously, HP is committed to Windows 8. "I think we need to be in the tablet business and we're certainly going to be there with Windows 8," Whitman commented. "We're going to make another run at this business." She certainly speaks as if she's been at HP for years!

    Despite the changes that HP has undergone, we are still excited for HP's second foray (or third, if you count the Slate mess) into the tablet business. In my view, HP products are usually loaded with bugs and trialware, but the design of the products is flawless and intuitive. And I have a sneaking suspicion that HP has desperately been trying to erase its reputation for crashing computers; its products have really stepped up in quality as of late. Nothing has been said about webOS, the controversial OS that HP inherited from Palm. WebOS has not exactly been lucrative for HP, but in my opinion it's not the OS itself, which I believe is one of the best, but HP's poor management and promotion skills. Because what was the point of buying out Palm if not to gain webOS?

    In any case, we want to hear what you guys think about HP and another tablet from them loaded with Windows 8? Would you buy? Why or why not?
