Business tablet with an innovative digitizer and security features

Very good alternative tablets would be Sony's Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact or Apple's iPad Mini 3, sometimes for half the price. HP's Pro Slate 8 is actually only worthwhile for users who need security features or a docking port. However, the corresponding docking station is also quite expensive. Too bad that digitizing handwritten notes does not function more reliably and is not explained enough. It would have likely been an important criterion for some buyers otherwise.

We deduct a point from the rating for that.

Buyers who have the wherewithal will get a tablet with a good casing, decent performance, great screen and useful battery runtimes. HP's Pro Slate 8 does not make any severe mistakes. However, anyone who does not really need the business features can save a lot of money with the competition.
