I have installed the 32-bit version of Windows 10 Enterprise on my HP ElitePad 900 G1 yesterday evening. I installed the drivers which are intended for the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1. All hardware is recognized now. I have not encountered any hardware issue, for example the touch screen is working fine.
The HP ElitePad 900 G1 comes with an Intel Atom Z2760 CPU. That’s a dual-core model with 1MB L2 cache and clocked at 1.8GHz with a PowerVR SGX545 GPU. The tablet also comes with 32GB SSD, Windows 8 Professional (32bit), a rear 8-megapixel camera, a front-facing 2-megapixe one, a 2-cell battery, Trusted Platform Module chip, a card reader, a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 pixel display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 2, NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The HP tablet that people probably remember most is the spectacularly unsuccessful webOS based TouchPad. However, HP has offered business grade tablets running Windows for a number of years, starting with the HP Slate. This tablet, and its successor, the Slate 2, ran Windows 7 on Atom processors, an OS and processor combination that led to underperforming products. With the release of Windows 8, an OS much better suited to tablet, HP finally has the ingredients to make a business grade tablet worth using. The HP ElitePad 900 G1 Tablet () was announced last fall, and is now finally available to buy, and we have been testing one out. You can check out our hands-on first impressions in the video below.
