HP Slate 7
Attractive, sturdy design.
Near stock Android, with unobtrusive customizations.
Durable 7-inch tablet.
Expandable storage option.
Has good gaming performance.
Beats Audio effectively enhances bass-heavy music through headphones or earbuds.

Mediocre battery life.
Large apps take a long time to load.

Android 4.1.1 can feel a bit archaic compared with newer versions of the OS.

HP seems to have gotten the memo, as it's now offering a $30 instant rebate on both the 8GB and 16GB models (bringing the former down to $140 and the latter to $170).
