82% HP ElitePad 1000 G2 (F1Q77EA) Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Smart business idea? HP is not the first manufacturer to bring a slim 10-inch tablet onto the business market - but never before has this concept been realized that consistently: for around 1,000 Euros (~$1319), the buyer not only get Intel's fastest Atom processor, including 4 GB RAM and 64-bit operating system, but also an integrated LTE module as well as different safety features.

The HP ElitePad 1000 gives professionals looking for a Windows 8 tablet an IT-friendly solution with a sharp 8-MP camera. But the competing Lenovo ThinkPad 10 provides a better optional keyboard and longer battery life for less money. If you have more money to spend, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 offers faster performance and a sharper display. Overall, the ElitePad 1000 is a solid contender but falls short of the competition.

80% HP ElitePad 1000 G2 Windows 8.1 Tablet Review: Faster, better, still rugged
Source: PC World English
It doesn’t get much better than the ElitePad 1000 in a Windows 8.1 business tablet, and kudos to HP for improving what needed to be improved without drastically increasing the weight. It’s fast enough, lasts long enough, and has a capable set of accessories.

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is not the sort of tablet you're going to want to get if you want to show off to your friends with fancy new apps and fun, useless features. This is a business machine. HP didn't make a toy here, they made a tool.

If you simply want a usable version of Windows for Internet connectivity, data input and working with Word or Excel, the HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is a solid choice, but for more demanding uses, like editing media, rendering complex visuals, or crunching large data sets, you'll want something more powerful. The Dell Venue 11 Pro (7139) remains our Editors' Choice for business tablets, thanks to its more potent processor and secondary battery, but the HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is still worth considering, due to its many accessory options and solid, all-around performance.

60% HP ElitePad 1000 G2 review: Windows tablet with 8 hours battery life lacks true laptop power
Source: PC Advisor English
If you need to work with Windows programs and need a totable tablet with almost usable battery life, the ElitePad fulfills the job. As a first-choice device that can serve in a laptop role too, it's rather underpowered and will have you yearning for the power of even a budget laptop.

HP’s take on the business tablet is a pretty one, and we’re reminded of a slicker take of Apple’s first generation iPad, albeit with an operating system that will let you get a lot more done if you’re in the mood for more than just content consumption. We also like the screen and the construction, and if you’re after Windows 8 with 4G, you should definitely look this way, but just beware that the price HP charges here isn’t terribly easy on the wallet, fetching $200 more than Lenovo’s own effort which even manages to outdo HP in some ways.

80% Still doesn't come with a full metal jacket, but accessories once again provide the firepower
Source: Techradar English
The ElitePad 1000 G2 is certainly a big upgrade from the ElitePad 900 that went before it, with beefier internals and a superior display, which make it a far more attractive option even before factoring in accessories. However, it's still highly reliant on those expansion jackets, and for every advantage that they bring, more often than not there's an associated disadvantage - whether it's added bulk, cost, the fact that you could lose them and having to carry them around.

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is in many ways an impressive tablet. It has good build quality, a responsive touchscreen and a range of useful accessories, even though some are on the expensive side. We think the 4G ElitePad with the 128GB SSD is the better-value model; this may not have as good a screen or be quite as fast as Microsoft's Surface Pro 3, but it's a useful £60 cheaper and gives you the ability to work away from Wi-Fi thanks to its mobile data connection. The Surface Pro 3 is still our choice for a laptop-replacing tablet thanks to its superb display and svelte looks, but the ElitePad 1000 G2 is the choice for business.

The ElitePad is a solid Windows 8.1 Pro tablet prioritising longevity over performance. The 15 hours of battery life is the stand-out feature, making this the Windows 8 tablet with the longest battery life.

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is a tablet aimed at professionals and business users. It is barely one centimeter thick at only 9.2 millimeters and only 0.7 kg in weight. In addition, it boasts wide viewing angles on the 10.1 inch multi touch screen protected by Corning glass. The 1920 x 1200 screen is sharp and has crisp and vibrant colors. The tablet is brightly lit, proving outdoor use to not be an issue.

The HP houses a Windows 8.1 operating system and comes equipped with Office Home & Student 2013. It features 4 GB of RAM and a quad core Intel Atom with a clock rate up to 2.39 GHz thanks to the Intel Burst Technology.

The aluminium case is solid and sturdy to hold, with no visible flexing when using the digitizer pen. It comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash and a 2.1 megapixel front camera for video chatting. The thin Elitepad G2 does not have much connectivity, housing only a single microSD slot, an audio jack and a "system connector" as a docking port.

The two stereo speakers on the underside are capable of delivering high and intermediate frequencies at surprisingly large volume. The battery can last for up to 7 hours with WiFi surfing.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z3795: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at 1.59 - 2.39 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1067 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.68 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
