First Look: HP Releases ElitePad 1000, ProPad 600

600 Vs. 1000

Aside from have-it-your-way configurability, the ProPad 600 has key features missing from its higher-end cousin. These include connected standby, micro-USB (2.0) and micro-HDMI ports, and a microSD card slot that supports up to 2 TB of storage expansion. But the ProPad lacks an aluminum case and, more importantly, the ability to be serviced by the reseller. There's also no cellular option and it works only with HP's docking station; it doesn't support the company's expansion jackets for vertical customization. But it does support a new HP device that's informally targeted at "line busting." That's covered next.
