What's a mobile OS doing on a desktop PC? Good question.

Highly versatile ; 21.5-inch, 1920x1080 ISP ; HDMI and upstream USB inputs

Boring design ; Cheap mouse and keyboard

HP Slate 21


The HP Slate 21 is a promise that Android will work for desktop PC users as well as it does for tablet users, with a nice price. The system fails on both counts.

Good range of tilt angles. Speedy boot and wake times. Don't have to worry about Windows malware. Wide viewing angles and bright screen

8GB is too little local storage space. 1GB isn't enough RAM. Browser is optimized for mobile sites. Kludgy SD card slot. Fonts are huge. No accelerometer for games. Laggy touch screen

The HP Slate 21 ($399) is a product in search of a certain user. That user pines for the kludgy early days of mobile operating systems when only certain things worked right, and only if you were patient. It's an all-in-one desktop PC that runs Android...

Neat good looks, convenient all-in-one design, decent screen,slim build, low price

Screen can be laggy, Android not optimised for big screen,processor could be more powerful, no FM radio

In theory, the Slate 21 is the logical next step as Androidbecomes the default interface for more and more users -- why notextend it from the mobile to the desktop? Based on this evidencethough, it's not quite ready yet. Not enough apps are optimised...

HP Slate 21 AIO

Blazing fast performance ; Excellent display - crisp, bright and IPS means colours look natural ; Full HD display makes this relevant for most use cases - work and entertainment ; Sleek & calm design tone

Android on a desktop may be uncomfortable for some ; Limited internal storage ; Some games aren’t updated for this device category, yet
