It doesn’t really make sense to think of the HP ElitePad as a budget tablet. While the base model without any add-ons is competitively priced, the real strength of this device lies in its flexibility. With a cornucopia of accessories available, it is able to adapt to fit a wide variety of needs.

That’s not to say that it is without fault. The tablet does offer performance levels reminiscent of other budget tablets, and regardless of how many add-ons users buy the specs will remain the same. For basic computing functions the Intel Atom processor will hold up, but users looking for more will find the device wanting.

However, with its strong durable build quality and excellent battery life the HP ElitePad shouldn’t be overlooked. Users who want an affordable tablet with the ability to adapt via numerous optional accessories should not overlook it. Just be ready to spend a bit more than most budget tablets to get the most out of this device.
