Would You Buy a Windows Tablet?

Remember the demos earlier this year of the Windows-based HP "Slate" that may have been nixed because of HP's acquisition of Palm? Yeah, HP's slate was pretty sick, and I would have waited for it if it was coming, but the iPad now looks like a sound choice. Forrester Research makes a convincing case, in a report, that Microsoft needs to come out with a Windows tablet to maintain consumer relevance. If you're reading this post, chances are good you're a Windows consumer. That being the case, if a Microsoft partner produced something like the HP Slate, would it sway you from an iPad?
