Surface Pro 3 vs ElitePad 1000 head-to-head review

Which Windows 8 tablet is the best?

Ports and Connectivity

The tablets take a different approach to connectivity. The Surface Pro 3 relies on the ports integrated into its chassis whereas the ElitePad has just one proprietary connection and needs an Expansion Jacket.

Security

HP has loaded up the ElitePad 1000 with enterprise features to attractive business deployments. The tablet ships with HP Credential and Password Manager software, drive encryption, TPM 1.2 and NFC with Secure Elements.

The device is also bundled with Absolute Data Protect software to help IT admins locate, lock and wipe devices.

Meanwhile, the Pro 3 includes a TPM chip but, aside from the basic Windows Defender software, there's no nothing to help IT admins secure or manage devices.

Winner: ElitePad 1000. It's setup for enterprise deployment.
