Price comparison

Design

1.weight

850g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

8mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

221.95mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

300.3mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

533.21cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.resolution

1600 x 1200px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

163ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size

12.3"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
HP Pro Slate 12
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has an IPS screen
HP Pro Slate 12
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
HP Pro Slate 12
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Performance

1.CPU speed
The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

2GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
HP Pro Slate 12
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

32GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.semiconductor size
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
6.Has integrated LTE
HP Pro Slate 12 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

2MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.has touch autofocus
HP Pro Slate 12
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
5.has a front camera
HP Pro Slate 12
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.has a built-in HDR mode
HP Pro Slate 12
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
HP Pro Slate 12
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
HP Pro Slate 12
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.has a battery level indicator
HP Pro Slate 12
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
2.has a rechargeable battery
HP Pro Slate 12
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
HP Pro Slate 12
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
2.Supports widgets
You can add widgets to the home screen. This allows you to have more flexibility and to see information at a glance, without going into the app.
3.has NFC
HP Pro Slate 12
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
4.is a multi-user system
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
5.The browser has word wrap
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
6.Bluetooth version

4

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.

Miscellaneous

1.floating-point performance
Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
2.pixel rate
The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
