The HP Slate 2 is a tablet computer designed and manufactured by Hewlett Packard. The tablet was released in November 2011 to North America and a Worldwide release followed later.
The HP Slate 2 features an Intel Atom processor running at 1.5GHz with 2GB on-board memory running Window 7.
Pricing for the HP Slate 2 was around £450 upon release but you could now pick one up for around £350 depending on where you purchase it.
The HP Slate 2 comes out thicker and heavier than it's predecessor and comes packed with the new generation Z670 Intel Atom processor running at 1.5GHz expected to deliver faster boot time and an increase on battery life by one full hour.
You can expect a 64GB solid state storage drive, depending on the model purchased which is expected to be faster than that of it's predecessor. The display remains the same size as with the HP Slate 500 measuring in at 8.9 Inch but will deliver the higher resolution of 1024 x 768.
Other features of the HP Slate 2 show 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, Wireless keyboard, Intel Media Accelerator 600 Graphics and a 3 mega pixel camera.
A standard USB Ethernet adapter for your shiny new HP Slate 2. The adapter comes in at a mild $39 so a reasonably cheap buy with your left over cash.
HP are currently offering two docking stations for the new HP Slate 2, the first model, AY052UT, comes at a price of $99, the second, QQ676UT, will set you back $10 less at $89. The AY version of the docking station comes with 4 x USB, DVI and Ethernet. The QQ model carries just 2 USB and a HDMI port.
If you don't fancy splashing the cash on an ethernet adapter or docking station, get over to the HP store and grab yourself a case for your brand new HP Slate 2.
Prices for a case range from $19 for a basic notebook case, to $119.00 for the HP Elite Series Designer Tote specially designed for women.
