HP EliteBook Revolve 11.6" convertible comes with a swivel, but Windows 8 gobbled the stylus

First off, there is no stylus input, due to the fingertip-friendly nature of Microsoft's newest OS version, but you still keep the swiveling design that slaps the 11.6" screen part onto the keyboard to turn the convertible into a tablet of sorts.
Screen resolution is run-of-the-mill 1366x768 pixels, which is still decent at this size, and there is rubberized finish instead of the usual brushed alloy surfaces we are used to. the EliteBook Revolve is compliant with MIL-STD 810G military standards, and weighs less than three pounds.
It can be outfitted with Core i3, i5 or even i7 processors, and SSD up to 256 GB, plus there is an empty slot if you want to expand the standard 4 GB of memory. HP throws in a SIM card slot, too, for your carrier's LTE or HSPA+ network, and is yet to disclose the price and retail date for the Revolve.

Waiting for "Low-resolution" haters to bash this thing... :P

The resolution isn't as big of a deal to me as the display type is. It's about to be 2013 and I don't want to still be wrestling with the screen to get it at a good enough angle so I can actually see anything. IPS or nothing.

I have Bought 6 HP laptops, 3 of one kind, 2 of another, and one other type. I must say, they are the biggest pieces of SH*#! I have ever owned. 4 died and had to go back to HP to be fixed within 6 months. The other two did not even make a year. got all back, they are all dead again except for one within another year. We are talking about laptops that where taken care of on desks. Sold the one piece of CRAP on eBay. Will never give HP another dime.

I bought XPS 12, It is amazing. I was puzzled among this, Asus Vivo Tab, HP Envy X2 and Sony Vaio Duo.. Both Asus and HP have low specs related to Atom processor, eventhough they both are light in weight and the tablet part could be de-attached from the docking keyboard. Vaio Duo is really nice but the typing on it, is really tough issue. The best one is XPS-12 with high resolution screen and Intel Core i5.
