The LE1700 will be the first slate Tablet to have a Core 2 Duo processor, which I am sure will be popular with users. It will have a 30GB or 60GB 1.8" hard drive and will only weigh in at 3.3lbs. with the standard battery. This Tablet will be perfect for traveling due to size and good battery life.
