HP Elitepad 1000 G2 is First 64-bit Windows Tablet on Baytrail-T. 4GB RAM. (+ video)

Posted on 24 February 2014 by

At a pre-MWC event yesterday evening I got a look at the updated HP Elitepad 1000 G2. It’s now running Baytrail-T (Z3795), comes with a 64-Bit version of Windows and has 4GB of RAM. There’s also, as before, a great selection of sleeves and a dock that now includes USB3.0

Starting at about 650 Euros (I must assume pre-tax as this is a business-focused device) it has the FullHD screen and 4GB of RAM and the Z3795 that turbo boosts to 2.4Ghz under Turbo which is a real advantage over the Z3740 devices that only boost to 1.8Ghz.

Design, weight and comfort on the Elitepad 1000 G2 are good and there’s a 30Wh battery inside but it’s when you get to the additional sleeves that you see where HP are going with this. The rugged keyboard sleeve was my favorite as it really would provide protection as well as a usable keyboard and some additional ports. You’ll see them in the video below.

There’s an Atmel-based digitizer layer and pen but I didn’t get much change to test that. It seems to register only very close to the screen so palm rejection might not be as good as, say, the Wacom solution on the ASUS Vivotab Note 8.

    4GB, love it. Still quite expensive – if that is without VAT (ask!?) and presumably without keyboard too, but a huge step forward from the Fujitsu Stylistic. Looks like no HDMI though.. even worse than that it looks like no USB port at all on the tablet part?! No doubt these things are on the dock and hopefully the keyboard too, but it does really harm portability (have to take the dock with me(!) ) and push up ‘starting’ cost further.

    At 10″, I’d rather have a clamshell or ASUS T100/Fujitsu Q584 hybrid form factors.

    BTW, the Q584 has a 4 GB RAM option for a while now. Although, I’m not sure if there is a 64-bit OS option so usable RAM may be somewhere between 3 – 4 GB.

    I am curious when this will be actually shipped (i.e. can buy real thing).

    Can this boot into any of the major Linux distro?
