Probably not a good idea. I put HP dead-last on my list because HP makes tihs. Where as Toshiba finds a way to tweak their computers (Windows or Android) to maximum efficiency and ease of use compared to 'as-is' makers like Dell, Acer, etc - HP somehow manages to make everything worse. Windows has always been a headache OS and HP's running it are clogged disasters.
HP's tablet runs webOS, purchased with Palm last year, but I'd imagine they only messed it up too. Might explain, as well as the top-dollar they were charging for their crap, why the HP tablet has only hit around 10% expected sales and BestBuy is trying to get HP to buy back the excess stock.
So it came as no surprise today that HP is closing it's personal, business and mobile division. They'll do what they can to sell that crap off, but the only thing worth a dime is some patents and maybe webOS to a company that knows what they're doing. HP business systems (servers, software, etc) and HP image systems (printers, scanners, etc) will remain.
