The word tablet is extraordinarily hot tablet sales worldwide up 98% year -- here.
Where's your apple iPad killer.
Well I think we're approaching a couple different ways one is we still believe the PCs strong and we believe that we can do something that is a mix between both tablet and PC.
Our research over the past years we've been looking at this categories really it resonates quite bit.
Where we have this product that can transform show me your favorite product in that realm right now come over here let me show you it's this is the MBX two in the -- -- It is a remarkable machine the what's uptrend by the way -- hatteras that I have.

Just quickly I can.
Slide the latch in disengage.
We've spent a number of hours this year weeks and months if you will.
Engineering the the tablet portion of this and how it docks with the system.
If you look closely we actually re engineered the view the complete hinge on this.
And who were using news special magnets and -- locking mechanism that all you need to do well let me -- a unit -- -- -- The -- -- doesn't know how to -- this stuff -- to just get it lined up pushed down in an immediate and long kind of sit what does it take enough to just collect Barack.
Incident hadn't docket if I could do that anybody can do -- rank I think that's pretty ignorant of health and it's simply is that once you precedent it's now in place.
And what's really nice about this is it close it up just like a beautiful notebook but I -- country attention.
Look how tiny that hinges are we spent a number of hours engineering that whole keys to make sure it's it's is fine tuned as a a jeweler would do let's look at the -- -- that of course is an ultra book and it's over here.
And it's a bigger PC here and obviously this is where the brains and I don't wanna just turn it to the -- you can see.
This is where all of the components are within.
Correct but then you've got this and then if you wanna you just -- out on her cause without right.
In what's nice about this is -- put all the technology in that arm so that we can basically whole -- -- weigh in really exude -- healthy and and clean this display is.
But which really has about this is.
That in this base we actually incorporated in FC which is near field communications I can take my cellphone and I can put it there.
I can also rest -- were there but this is all -- also buy it.
A large touch -- as I finish up yes cat UB apple on some of these products I think so we have some compelling things for should be in -- to.
It's a product that.
When you talk to students it really resonate it gives -- best of both.
World Stacy wolf is chief of design here at Hewlett-Packard very much were wishing you good luck after -- made it made all over the place is just a fascinating picture here and by the way we've got some breaking news -- before -- coming up in the 1 PM hour Elon -- of Tesla Motors.
