Unveiled earlier this year, Intel’s new line of Bay Trail chips promise to deliver longer battery life and low-cost performance that’s fit for gaming, 4K video playback and graphics editing. This efficiency was evident in our hands-on with the HP Omni 10, as the slate was able to switch between the desktop and Modern UI almost instantly. We also noticed that the Omni was able to snap back to life after being asleep within just one second.

The HP Omni 10 joins the likes of the $329 Toshiba Encore, $499 Dell Venue 11 Pro and the $349 ASUS Transformer Book T100 in being in the first wave of Bay Trail-powered slates. However, the ASUS comes with a keyboard for its lower price. Stay tuned for a full review.

    How are you sure that it will come with office. A MS store employee told me it didn't but that might be just there version of the tablet. Strangely it is for sale by MS but not HP, though I was not able to get one from MS and I preordered from MS the date it opened for pre order. I was told they were out of stock when the actual order date was open. So much for getting first in line.

    This seems like a better deal than the HP Omni 10. The only thing I'm concerned with is the screen resolution. Can you do a test anytime soon?
