HP ElitePad 1000 vs Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10 vs HP ElitePad 900:Which is better?
HP ElitePad 1000 The ElitePad is a solid Windows 8.1 Pro tablet prioritising longevity over performance. The ElitePad is Crisp, clear, bright colors and high brightness display; aluminum design; decent cameras; good speakers Helpful HP IT software preloaded; Good rear camera; Versatile optional dock. The ElitePad has a 10.1-inch IPS display featuring a native pixel-resolution of 1920 x 1200, up from the Elitepad 900's 1280 x 800. It's a great resolution for the size of the device.Its touchscreen panel is very bright and easily viewable outdoors when set to full brightness. It offers excellent, near-180-degree viewing angles and is scratch resistant, with an anti-smudge coating that makes it easy to clean. Corning's Gorilla Glass 3's presence means it's also tough to boot. Touch input works flawlessly, allowing you to pick out icons, text and cursor points with good accuracy. Driven by a quad-core 64 bit Intel Bay Trail class processor, the HP ElitePad 1000 G2 isn’t intended to compete with top-of-the-line specs. But it’s also no slouch, boasting a normal speed of 1.6 GHz, and a “burst” speed of 2.4 GHz. We’ve already seen what Intel’s speed bursts can do in Acer’s Android tablets, and it’s quite impressive. Although this ElitePad may not measure up to higher end devices like theMicrosoft Surface Pro 3, it’s definitely nothing to be trifled with. And it’s certainly adequate for day-to-day corporate usage, as long as you’re not trying to play high end 3D games on your breaks. Not that the Intel HD4000 display subsystem would be good for that anyway. All this is rounded out by 4 GB of RAM and a 64 GB internal SSD. The battery life on the tablet is fairly good, lasting 7 hours 35 minutes on rundown test. The HP ElitePad 900 lasted a bit longer (8:23), while the Microsoft Surface 3 Pro (8:55) had the longest-lasting solo battery among the devices compared. The longest-living device, however, was the Dell Venue 11 Pro, which only lasted 6:29 as a tablet alone, but extended this to 9:18, thanks to a secondary battery in the docking keyboard. Specs

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10 The design is great, the screen pops and the keyboard is good and I like the battery hump because it’s a great way to hold the device.The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 bundles a useful kickstand, an attractive high-resolution display, long battery life and a great keyboard into a package that's light and inexpensive. Lenovo packs its slate with a detachable Bluetooth keyboard you can use to get work done, along with a bright screen and superb battery life. You'll have access to all the same apps as you would on any PC but with the portability to easily slip this slate into a backpack or purse. Aside from a few design flaws, the Yoga Tablet 2 10 is a compelling multi-purpose performer. Performance
The Yoga is powerful, but not quite a match for some of the other top tablets on the market. It runs on a quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 processor clocked at 1.86GHz, along with 2GB of RAM.
This combination helps the Yoga score 2,383 in the Geekbench 3 multi-core speed test, placing it just behind some of the most expensive tablets available. The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro (2,517) and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (2,669) are slightly speedier, but the iPad Air 2 (4,509) stands well ahead of the pack.
It’s a similar story in the graphics department, with the Yoga hitting an impressive 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited count of 15,739. This leaves the Tab S (13,500) in the dust, though the 2 Pro (16,674) and Air 2 (21,797) again come out on top.
The result is a tablet that can blitz through everyday tasks such as browsing the web, composing emails and watching movies. It’s powerful enough to handle complex 3D games too. Favourites such as Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2 and Real Racing 3 play beautifully smoothly. There are no overheating issues either. The rear warms up a touch during particularly intensive use, but it never affects performance.
The Yoga 2 lasted through eight hours of screen time, which is impressive considering that I had maxed out the brightness and had attached Bluetooth speakers. The Yoga's battery life makes it the perfect tablet for long plane or car trips.
The downside of the impressive battery length is that it requires a great deal of time to recharge. This means you'll need to leave it plugged in for a few hours. If you aren't using the powerful wall-plug that comes with the Yoga 2, you might even need to wait overnight.
BUT,Weak magnets make the connection between tablet and keyboard dock a tenuous one.
THE BOTTOM LINE If you're willing to overlook the flawed keyboard dock, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows offers the full Windows 8 experience in an inexpensive package. Key Features: 10.1-inch, 1,920 x 1,200 IPS screen; Android 4.4 KitKat; Aluminium and plastic build; Quad-core Intel Atom Z3745 processor; 2GB RAM; Built-in stand; 619g; Dolby stereo speakers; 8-megapixel main camera; microSD card slot
Manufacturer: Lenovo Price: $369.99 VS HP ElitePad 900 ElitePad 900 offers similar functionality to the Surface Pro in a much smaller and more stylish shell and - probably - at a cheaper price.The ElitePad 900’s display measures 10 inches diagonally and fits a 16:10 aspect ratio, which is better suited for productivity than the 16:9 “widescreen” format most Windows tablets and laptops use. HP has wisely placed the volume and power buttons along a single corner so they’re easy to access in both landscape and portrait orientation.Intel Atom Z2760 chip clocked at 1.5GHz-1.8GHz combined with 2GB RAM. Often tablets that run full-blown Windows sacrifce performance and battery life in order to offer full PC capabilities.
HP ElitePad 900 Windows tablet for a spin to see how it stacks up in a world of thin-and-light, high performance tablets.The HP ElitePad 900 is a well-built business tablet with an impressive array of add-ons and accessories.
But, The base tablet starts out expensive, and those docks and jacket accessories add even more to the cost. Intel's Atom performance continues to underwhelm.
The bottom line: If someone else is footing the bill, HP's expensive ElitePad 900 and its accessory ecosystem cover a lot of bases, but this isn't going to be a consumer crossover product. Specifications
