HP Elitepad 900 review: average tablet, crazy price
8 March 2014
Excerpt: It’s difficult to make sense of HP’s Elitepad 900. This 10.1” tablet runs Windows 8 and offers the portability that makes any tablet a smart buy, yet it carries an asking price that puts it in competition with laptops that offer far more operating power. Hewlett Packard has taken a form factor that started as an affordable consumer device, and has turned it into an expensive business machine. When you consider the history of computing generally, it’s going backwards.
Conclusion: The HP ElitePad 900 is a business-worthy Windows 8 tablet that a consumer could love. The jackets remind us of the grand days of the HP iPAQ and its sleeves: they make the device useful in a variety of scenarios while maintaining portability and augmenting battery life. Build quality is top notch, the design is extremely attractive and the tablet is one of the lightest 10" tablets on the market, regardless of OS.
Pros: Lovely design with aluminum casing, sharp IPS display, a variety of useful expansion jackets and docks make this very versatile.
Cons: Expensive, not lighter than an Ultrabook when paired with the keyboard jacket. The Intel Atom Z2760 isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. Few ports on tablet itself.
