HP is one of several companies offering Android-based all-in-one systems, with a refreshed Slate21 Pro arriving this week at CES. Building upon the existing Slate21, the new model upgrades most of the hardware specs and adds a few new software features for business users. We stopped by HP's booth at the show to experience the improvements in person.

Like many mobile devices, the Slate21 Pro is powered by Nvidia's Tegra 4 processor. When navigating through the UI and trying out a few apps, the quad-core chip and 2GB of RAM kept the experience smooth. We didn't notice any frustrating lag or software glitches.

We liked the 21.5-inch display, which can also serve as an external monitory for any HDMI source such as a Windows PC. As an added bonus, a USB connection can be used to enable touchscreen functionality from the connected PC.

The Slate21 Pro is currently available for $399.
