The HP Slate 7 HD can’t compete with the iPad or high-end Android tablets, but then again it’s not meant to. It’s built and designed for those light tablet users who want a budget device that allows them to surf the web, send emails, and download apps. And at that the HP Slate 7 HD excels. For £99 it’s the best budget tablet I’ve used – and that’s before even considering the free two-year 3G data plan it includes. If you’re looking for a good budget tablet for yourself, your children, or your parents the HP Slate 7 HD is definitely worth a look.

Unfortunately, that's about where the praise stops for the Slate 7 HD, as it struggles to compete with even some of the cheapest tablets of the market.

If a cheap 3G connection is all-important then you can't go wrong with HP's offering, although for anyone who spends a lot of their time at home or at work connected to a Wi-Fi connection it would be wise to look elsewhere.
