HP® tablets are an excellent choice for reading, light gaming, videos, and other tasks that need a larger size screen than your smartphone offers but smaller and more portable than a lightweight laptop. Staples® carries a variety of tablets with different operating systems, amounts of storage, graphics capabilities, display size, weight, types of ports, wireless connectivity, and battery life.
Choose the Right HP Tablet An HP tablet varies by operating system, app options, storage size, memory, and graphics. They run on Microsoft® Windows® or Android™ operating systems. With Windows, you can sync all devices on the same system and run the full version of Microsoft Office® rather than needing to use the app. Android operating systems are Google-based and can sync with all Google products and use the Google Play™ store for apps. Tablets come with a 16, 32, 64, or 128GB internal hard drive. Many models come with a microSD and smart-card reader that support SD, SDHC, and SDXC types of external memory for more space. Models come with 2, 4, or 8GB of memory. For gaming or running multiple programs, consider an 8GB device for faster performance. Most tablets use an Intel graphics card. Other options include AMD and NVIDIA.
Pick an HP Tablet Display Tablets come in different display sizes and screen resolutions. Screens range from 7 inches to 12 inches. The display size measures diagonally across the screen. If you are looking for portability, consider one between 7 and 8 inches. These are easy to travel with and have a longer battery life than larger models. Smaller units are also easier to type on when using the on-screen keyboard. Some of the larger ones come with a travel keyboard that connects wirelessly or plugs into a USB port. The screen resolutions available are 1280 x 800, 1920 x 1200, 1920 x 1280, and 1900 x 1200. Higher resolutions offer crisper screens for reading, watching videos, and playing games. All tablets come with LED touchscreens. Another choice is a backlit screen, which is helpful for reading in low-light conditions or the dark.
How Do HP Tablets Connect Wirelessly? You can connect with Wi-Fi to a router or on a data plan. If you already have a phone with a data plan, it may be possible to use it as a Wi-Fi hotspot to connect your tablet. To save your phone's battery life, consider a mobile hotspot device that works with most Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
Are HP Tablets Portable and Easy to Store? One of the advantages of a tablet over a laptop is weight. They are easier to carry in a handbag, briefcase, or backpack than most laptop computers. HP tablets weigh between 1 and 5 pounds, so they add little bulk to a carry-on bag at the airport.
What Is the Average Battery Life of an HP Tablet? Battery life depends on usage. When you run multiple applications at once, play games that use a lot of memory, or watch high-definition movies and television shows, the battery drains faster than it does while surfing the internet or reading an e-book. Most models have a battery life of 9 hours.
