Reviews for the HP Pro Slate 12

The HP Pro Slate 12 is a wonderful device for a niche audience. Employees who are focused on data entry, and note-taking and illustrators who need digital copies of their doodles will love the Slate and its accompanying Duet Pen. However, if your job is a bit more labor intensive, and you need more power to help get you through the day, the HP Pro Slate 12 is not the right device for you.

While the key feature of the HP Pro Slate 12 is initially very impressive, we can’t help but feel that very few people will bother to use it once the novelty wears off. However, if you’re an old school note taker who vastly prefers writing on paper with a pen, instead of writing directly onto the screen with a stylus, then this could be just the device you’re looking for.

The Pro Slate 12 is a worthy productivity tool for most businesses, with great apps and reliable digitisation tech, even if the Duet Pen can't quite handle the ruled lines of certain design work and it's running a slightly outdated processor and operating system. Nonetheless, there's much more to this device than the latest innovation in note-writing and minute-taking. It's a powerful, versatile and reasonably priced tablet for its screen size. Just make sure it stays out of the sun.

Qualcomm Adreno 330: Integrated graphics card in some Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs, supports OpenGL ES 3.0

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

800 MSM8974:

High-end ARM SoC with 4 CPU cores up to 2.3 GHz and an Adreno 330 GPU up to 450 MHz. Based on Qualcomm's Krait 400 architecture and is manufactured in a 28nm HPM process.

12.30":

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.

The same applies to tablets in this size range.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.


70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
