Excerpt: The HP Compact 2710p Laptop has the function of an ultra-light notebook coupled with an ultra-slim tablet. It has a 30.7 centimetres of diagonal screen with an Illuni-Lite display. It weighs 1678.3 grams and is 28.2 mm thin. Glass top is made for writing with a contrast and less reflections when used outdoors.
Summary: This unit is clearly not built for performance, but manages to do the basics with some serious style. Its cool operating temperature makes it comfortable to use over extended periods and we liked the responsive tablet controls.
Summary: HP's attractive Compaq 2710p convertible tablet suffers from one fatal flaw, choosing a ThinkPad-style pointing stick over a touchpad, effectively ruling it out for a large number of potential users.
Pros: Slick, brushed-aluminium design, Sturdy but lightweight construction
