Summary: HP’s attempt at an over-sized Android device that acts as a PC is full of faults. The bottom line is it just doesn’t work that well, but at least it's fairly inexpensive at £329. The 1080p display looks great, but to actually use, it’s just frustrating.
Conclusion: Would we like to see a refreshed Slate 21 with the hardware quibbles addressed? Sure. But we're not sure that it's worth HP's time and resources to produce that—at least until there's some hope of a solution to the twin problems of Android-app display and usability on a big, non-rotating desktop...
Pros: Big, high-resolution screen, Good sound system, Strong performance, 25GB of online storage, Not susceptible to Windows security threats
Cons: Inherent limitations of Android outside tablets and smartphones, Some apps won't render properly, Bezel inhibits touch input near screen edges, Just 8GB onboard storage, Wired keyboard & mouse
Excerpt: The All-in-One desktop category has been fairly bland all this while, to be honest. Which is why we didn’t have much hope from the Slate 21 when it landed at our test centre. We presumed that it would just be another run of the mill machine of its category.
Summary: The basics Meet the HP Slate 21, a massive 21-inch, all-in-one desktop that brings Android to the big screen. We took the huge touchscreen hybrid for a spin to see if it can really replace your computer, or find a place on your kitchen counter.
Pros: At first glance, you probably wouldn’t notice this is powered by Android. The HP Slate 21 looks just like a desktop, with its 21-inch, 1080p IPS panel touchscreen, but it runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The screen is brilliantly bright, with superb viewing angles, plus you can tilt it at variou...
Cons: Unfortunately, the negatives seriously outweigh the positives. The HP Slate 21 only packs 8GB of storage, which isn’t much for a desktop, though HP has softened the blow with 25GB of free cloud storage from Box. You can add more storage with an SD card or an external hard drive, but you really sh...
Conclusion: In theory, the Slate 21 is the logical next step as Android becomes the default interface for more and more users -- why not extend it from the mobile to the desktop? Based on this evidence though, it's not quite ready yet.
Excerpt: Review Hewlett-Packard’s first attempt at an Android tablet, the Slate 7, was a cheap, wretched and irredeemably awful device. So when I heard that the Palm killer’s follow-up fondleslab was to be a 21-inch affair, my reaction was one of incredulity mixed with foreboding.
Excerpt: HP har bygget højttaleren ind i bunden af skærmen, hvilket alt andet lige giver bedre lyd end bagudrettede højttalere. Vi noterer også en detalje, som at tilslutningerne bagpå er gemt bag et lille låg. Både denne HP og AOC-modellen er typer, der kræver strømforsyning.
Conclusion: Bir süre önce Windows tabanlı Hepsi –Bir-Arada PC 'leri çokça görüyorduk. Hala da kullanımdalar elbette, ancak bu tip ürünlerde artık yeni trend Android işletim sistemine doğru kaymış durumda.
