Originally founded in a garage in Palo Alto, California, Hewlett-Packard was once the world's largest computer manufacturer, though it has been in decline for some time. Although slow to enter the tablet market, HP's devices range from attractive, high-quality devices to ho-hum tablets that don't quite hit the spot. The varied product line includes offerings ranging from budget to business-class tablets.

HP Envy Note 8

A fascinating hybrid with a keyboard disproportionately bigger than the tablet. 

HP Spectre x2

A Surface Pro 3 competitor with an interesting converting keyboard. 

HP Pro Tablet 608

"A great mid-sized tablet that can practically double as a laptop with the right peripherals. In many ways, it's actually superior to the popular Nexus 9." Check out our full review

HP Pro Slate 8 and Pro Slate 12

The 8 was basically an Android-powered iPad Mini with an ultrasonic pen. Loud speakers, 4:3 screen at 324 ppi, loud speakers, and running Android 5.0.2 - this was a device with a lot going for it. The pen was not universally well received and added to the unit price, which was a tad steep.

HP Pro Tablet 10 EE

Aimed at the education sector, this was a decent tablet for teachers and students. It was durable enough to survive rough terrain (i.e. the modern classroom) but suffered from a woeful screen. 

HP Pro Tablet 408

It did everything you expect from a tablet, and it looked and felt great. It didn't have the most vibrant screen, and it wasn't the lightest and thinnest tablet PC, but it was light enough and thin enough to make some friends. 

HP Elitepad 1000 (Healthcare and Rugged)

Versatile, rugged tablets with great build quality, display and performance. There was nothing much wrong with the 1000s, just that the Surface Pro 3 was available for more of less the same price. 

HP Stream 7 and 8

These cheap tablets were quite popular - perhaps because they ran Windows and came with a 1-year Office 365 subscription worth at least half the price of the tablet itself! 

HP Slate 7 Plus, Extreme, HD

Three 7-inch tablets launched in early 2014. We compared them on this page.

HP Omni 10

The release of this HP tablet was met with virtual silence. It was a puzzling decision for a tablet that, despite some potential flaws, was a thoroughly solid device. Our full review.

HP SlateBook x2

The HP SlateBook x2 is just the second Android tablet from the manufacturer, succeeding the poorly received HP Slate 7. Unfortunately, the SlateBook x2 is an inconsistent blend of good quality and cheap design. The chassis is cheap and plasticky, and even the 1,920-by-1,080 pixel high-definition display is plagued by poor color balance and mediocre brightness. The 1.8-gigahertz Tegra 4 processor is a nice inclusion at this price point, but it's already been surpassed by several competitors.

HP Slate 7

The first HP tablet to be powered by Android 4.1, the HP Slate 7 is the smallest of the manufacturer's line of tablets. The seven-inch form factor and Android operating system and are geared toward consumers who demand high portability. The Slate 7 is the first device produced by the Mobility Global Business Unit division of the company, which is dedicated to improving the quality of HP's mobile device offerings. The Slate 7, like the Envy x2, also features integrated Beats Audio.

HP ElitePad 900

With an impressive range of standard security features and a rugged machined aluminum frame, HP's ElitePad 900 marks the manufacturer's most successful entrance into the world of business tablets. Like the Envy x2, the Windows 8-based ElitePad is powered by a 1.8-gigahertz Atom processor. The ElitePad 900 is the first of HP's tablets to make use of the Smart Jacket line of optional accessories, which provide a variety of connectivity options.

HP Envy x2

The HP Envy x2 represents the mid-sized option among HP's x2 family of hybrid tablets. The Windows 8-based device features an 11.6-inch display and Beats Audio sound, and employs a 1.8-gigahertz Intel Atom processor. When paired with the keyboard dock, the Envy x2 is intended to provide a more mobile alternative to traditional ultrabooks. The keyboard dock also features a second battery, which greatly extends the battery life of the device.

HP TouchPad

The HP TouchPad was based around the webOS platform, which excelled at handling multitasking. However, mixed reviews and unexpectedly poor sales led to massive price cuts and eventually the outright discontinuation of the line and the operating system soon after its release. Independent efforts to bring Android and Linux functionality to the device have created renewed interest in the TouchPad.

HP Slate 500

With the HP Slate 500, HP made full use of the touch-friendly Windows 7 operating system. The Slate 500 featured a 1.86-gigahertz Atom processor rather than the 1.5-gigahertz Slate and Slate 2 models. Additionally, the Slate 500 was among the first tablets to include an active digitizer. Also notable was the support for fully hardware-accelerated Adobe Flash and AIR internet content.
