Reviews for the HP Slate 2 Wi-Fi + 3G

80% Review HP Slate 2 Wi-Fi + 3G Tablet | Notebookcheck
A test of patience. With the Slate 2, the manufacture HP targets business customers who even in the realm of tablets are forced to stick with Windows. These people have to reach deep in their pockets and still be content with a slow Atom Processor. Can the extensive list of features compensate for that?

The HP Slate 2 is a solidly built 8.9in Windows tablet responsive to both touch and stylus input. Business customers may be drawn by its small size and portability, plus support for full Windows applications. Modest specifications mean it won't suit everybody. Pros: Small and portable, runs fullWindows applications, dock offers additional ports including HDMI, solid build Cons: Short on internal memory, no Ethernet connectivity, Atom processor is a little sluggish.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 600: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip in the Atom Z600 series CPUs with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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).


Z670: Slow single core processor for tablet pcs that includes the GMA 600 graphics card (with video decoding features) and a DDR2-800 memory controller (max 2 GB).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


8.9":

This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
