Other Options/Competitors:

Other Tablet PC’s out there that competes with the tablet pc in terms of price and performance is the Apple’s iPad tablet pc. It costs around $400. Another tablet to take into account is the Blackberry’s Playbook tablet PC which would cost around $599.

The two tablet pc competitors has only a slight difference in the price range as compared to the HP Slate 500 Tablet PC. Though, Apple’s iPad would cost much cheaper and more affordable than the HP slate 500, it doesnt compare with the HP Slate 500 Tablet PCs power. The software it can install and a memory capacity of 1 GB is tremendous. In the case of the Blackberry’s Playbook tablet pc, it has a slight difference of the price as compared to the HP Slate 500, but the Playbook has smaller screen display of 7.6 and also has little to offer on the software installs because of the operating system it uses.

Pros

  • Price per Gigabyte
  • Additional Storage
  • Front facing camera
  • Bundled with useful accessories including a carrying case and a dock/stand with additional USB ports and HDMI out.
  • Install most of the PC Software

Cons

  • Poor Battery Life
  • Lacks touch-screen customization.
  • Windows elements arent always finger-friendly, so the bundled digital pen or a connected keyboard/mouse are a must for heavy-duty productivity.

General Reception/Customers Review

The HP Slate 500 tablet pc has not much to offer when it comes to entertainment. However, it is a powerful best tablet for reading pc for business users because of the software installs it can handle. The Windows 7 operating system gives a big deal about the worth of the tablet pc. In terms of practical and business usage, the HP Slate 500 tablet pc wins them all.
