HP Compaq 2710p review

 

An eye-catching tablet PC that continues to impress

Stylish and well built ; Great usability ; 3 year warranty ; Good battery life

No optical drive ; Low performance

A fantastic ultraportable Tablet PC with just as much style as substance

HP Compaq 2710p review

 

The 2710p is the best-looking laptop in this month's Labs, and even gives the flashy MacBook Air a run for its money.

The screen doesn't click into position, but the 2710p has all the best tablet ingredients otherwise

Hewlett-Packard Compaq 2710p GP143PA

 

Responsive electronic pen, keyboard light, A4 size, cool operating temperature

Few shortcuts available in tablet mode, poor performance

This unit is clearly not built for performance, but manages to do the basics with some serious style. Its cool operating temperature makes it comfortable to use over extended periods and we liked the responsive tablet controls.

HP Compaq 2710p

 

The HP Compaq 2710p's battery rivals the Energizer bunny for lasting-power, but you'll have to put up with a dim screen and low-powered components.

All-day battery life. Trendy design. Webcam with mainstream digital camera features.

Washed-out screen. ULV processor combined with the 4,200-rpm hard drive is a bottleneck for Vista. Pricey extended battery and dock. Pricey system.

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.
