About a year about ago, I wrote a review about Windows 8.1. I  wanted to revisit with hardware built for the OS.

I like the review however I would like to point out something:

 

HP markets the elitepad 900 as a business level/enterprise class tablet.  That's why it is a metal case and heavier.  It also doesn't have a 1080p screen, great camera, full ports on the device, etc.. because it is a business level device and not marketed to the normal person.

 

The elitepad line is not even marketed on the consumer part of their website but rather their business portal: http://shopping1.hp.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/WW-USSMBPublicStore-Site/en_US/-/USD/ViewStandardCatalog-Browse;pgid=jDJwlVlq2W9SR0Yk2kO1Yuen0000VLo8Xrn_;sid=k1yq2g5IHzqr2l2ioxhjTtdHQVKSq94BgUM=?CatalogCategoryID=1kcQ7hacajkAAAFD.F5ylsV7

 

Now, the consumer tablet, the Omni 10, has much better specs and is only $399

Thanks for reading. However, the specs are about the same, expect for the CPU, and the ElitePad is faster..

We actually have two of the 900 units here at work that never were used.  We started a windows 8 tablet project but it was canceled due to a lack of funds.

Good review. I agree the update story is a real major sour point for Windows and Microsoft.

 

Microsoft really needs to embrace a system where they can update Windows to the latest version in one shot. I had to "refresh" my mom's Windows 8 laptop that was running Windows 8.1 and it knocked it back to 8 and you have to do this hours upon hours long update process before you can even start 8.1. Absolutely insane... As if they shipped the OS expecting it would never be updated?

 

Hopefully this is fixed in 9 or Threshold or whatever they are calling it these days.
