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 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 is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny 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 very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.69 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.
