Compaq HP Compaq 2710p

 

The HP Compaq 2710p is a highly configurable convertible notebook with some ultracool features. It doesn't have a very fast processor or an integrated optical drive, but its battery life is fabulous and its screen is responsive.

Indoor/outdoor screen ; Good docking and battery options

Unorthodox button placement

This tablet could be faster, but input is supereasy, even in full sunlight, and battery life is top-notch.

HP's sleek convertible performs well but doesn't have the best ergonomics.

Excellent Tablet performance ; Spacious and responsive keyboard ; Good LCD viewing outdoors and on angle ; Long battery life

No touchpad or Tablet launch button ; Awkward lid latches ; Mediocre microphone

HP Compaq 2710p Tablet PC Review (Video)

 

The 2710p has a solid design. The chassis is sturdy and shows no signs of flex. Appearance wise, I have no complaints either and the brushed aluminum accents really catch the eye. The design is very minimalistic, but yet very functional

Solid design and sturdy chassis ; Sleek appearance with brushed aluminum accents ; Great wireless options ; Small and lightweight ; Good battery life

Pen falls out of silo sometimes ; Hinge has a little wobble when in notebook mode ; No optical drive, but this saves on weight

Even though the 2710p isn't packed with features it is a lightweight solid tablet. If you are looking for a nice ultraportable with a solid design, sleek appearance, good battery life and great wireless options this may be for you. It is the perfect...

HP 2710P TABLET PC

 

Flaunting a Core 2 Duo Intel processor and 2048MB (2GB) of DDR2 SD RAM (max of 4GB RAM), this tablet isn't one to be taken lightly in the power department. Although it only has an Intel GMA X3100 Dynamic Video graphics processor, it can allocate up to...

Great tablet pc for students and for on-the-go

 

I have never looked back after purchasing the 2710p. The quick and energy efficient processor is great for multi-tasking and even better for battery life--I get an average of 4.5-5 hours, and even longer if I really lower brightness and am just editing...

Great keyboard, visible screen outdoors, keyboard light, sturdy hinge, responsive capacitive controls, sturdy overall(chassis, screen, keyboard), excellent inking accuracy and speed, battery life, light-weight, thin, excellent wireless range, etc

Uneven backlighting, lack of touchpad, few controls when in tablet mode, slower hard drive speed, pen garage, fingerprint reader placement, tablet screen viewing

BEWARE: HP Customer Service is one of the most atrocious, horrendous, and horrific experiences you will ever go through. Be prepared to spend hours on the phone going nowhere and lots of money getting problems fixed. So much so it will want you to go...

I'm sure the computer looks nice

HP Customer Care blows
