"A well-designed, and great-performing tablet."4.5 starson by ojleblanc
Pros: small size, ultimate in flexibility due to included detacheable keyboard, problem free
Cons: Short battery life, rubber round included pen wears over time
Summary: I've used the HP TC1100 for almost a year. I have very few complaints. The tablet works great. Members of my social science research team all chose different tablets. (We're using them to collect data in the field). Some chose the Fujitsu slate and others the Motion 1300. I opted for the HP b/c its the ultimate in flexibility given that its a hybrid. I can use it like a traditional laptop, flip the screen around like a convertible, and go keyboard free like a pure slate. I'm someone who likes to have her cake and eat it too and the TC1100 lets me do that! I've given up nothing.
Moreover, I've had absolutely no performance issues. Everything about it (hardware wise) works. Microsoft could use some help, but I can't hold HP responsible for that!
The one thing HP does need to improve is the battery life (2 hrs with wireless usage) and the rubber grip around the bottom of the pen. Over time, as you insert the pen into the tablet's silo, the rubber begins to wear away. For that reason, I bought a Cross pen so I wouldn't have to remove and re-insert the original pen so much. The rubber has a nice feel to it, but HP needs to secure it better to the pen.
Great tablet. Highly recommended from someone who uses a lot of tech and is very demanding of it.
