THE HP SLATE 21 is a stylish AiO running Android Jelly Bean (v4.2). The design is all-white and very compact. The 21-inch Full HD IPS panel is stunningly good and also comes with touch. Just below it, in a strip running all across, is the speaker which gives good sound output. In the box are a white keyboard and mouse that take up two of these ports. HP could have made these wireless.
Running Android, the AiO spring to life in under 10 seconds. The homescreen is in no way different from what you would see on a smartphone or tablet running this OS. While you would have a mental block against using Android for daily computing, I think this will find takers among those who use an Android phone or tablet. Since there is not much learning involved, this AiO can be recommended for children as well as the elderly.
