Engadget Review

HP is dipping its toe back into the tablet market with the budget-friendly Slate 7, but the tablet's underperforming processor and lackluster display leave much to be desired.

Pros
  • Sturdy design
  • Inexpensive
Cons
  • Washed-out, low-res display
  • Latency and stuttering during routine tasks
  • Disappointing battery life
