HP may be working on an all-in-one desktop/tablet with a 17 inch display. The company already offers 21 inch HP Slate 21 and Slate 21 Pro models. Now an unannounced HP Slate 17 has shown up at online benchmarking site GFXBench.
The HP Slate 17 reportedly features a 17.2 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, an Intel Celeron N2807 dual-core Bay Trail processor, 2GB Of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage. It runs nNdroid 4.4 KitKat. It has WiFi and a front-facing camera, but no rear camera, Bluetooth, or GPS.
If the details are correct, you can probably think of the Slate 17 as a desktop monitor… which you can also use as a standalone device that runs Android apps including a web browser, video players, or games even when there’s no PC plugged in.
HP’s Slate series all-in-one systems also have built-in batteries, which mean that you can pick up the systems and carry them around the house without lugging around an extension cord. That means you can look up a recipe in the office and carry the system to the kitchen while you’re cooking, play a game on a Slate system as it lays flat on a coffee table, or watch videos anywhere in the house.
HP’s Slate 21 has an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and 8GB of 16GB of storage, so the new model, if it’s real, will have a different CPU architecture and more storage.
