HP Touchsmart TX2-1015ea tablet PC

 

HP's Touchsmart TX2 is unusual among Tablet PCs in that it's intended for home use rather than corporate use. You'll find glossy patterned plastics more in-keeping with the company's Palivion range than its Compaq machines. The only question is, is...

Nice looking, excellent keyboard, well made, well-specified

Too heavy for comfortable tablet use, bulky, hazy screen

Anybody in the market for a ultra mobile laptop could do a lot worse than the Touchsmart TX2. It’s a comfortable and stylish machine, and it’s crammed with features.

The trackpad trembles in fear for its future as HP brings the magic of multitouch to its latest notebook

The multi-touch still needs work, but the TX2 is a fine laptop regardless

HP TouchSmart tx2-1020ea review

 

Stylish, comfortable and well-equipped, but not the fastest machine

Touchscreen ; Good build quality

Hazy screen ; Small mouse buttons

A comfortable machine with some nice features to use but is a bit on the heavy side for one handed use

HP TouchSmart tx2-1020ea review

 

The tx2-1020ea is similar in design to the tx2130ea, with both being tablet touchscreen laptops. The case is sturdily built, with rounded edges and a smart, glossy metallic finish. The keyboard and touchpad are both of a good standard.

HP Touchsmart TX2 review

 

This hybrid notebook lifts HP's desktop experience from its TouchSmart IQ506 and drops it into a smallish package - small in that the HP Touchsmart TX2 has a 12.1in screen; but it's a little on the big-boned side, and too heavy to be truly portable, as...

As far as Tablet PCs go, the HP TouchSmart tx2 gets enough right to warrant a look. This media-friendly tablet tries to take the TouchSmart desktop experience on the road, but at this point the size of the device and the software's limitations mean its...

HP Touchsmart TX2

 

In the laptop world, touchscreens have mostly been limited to business minded Tablet PCs. But the HP TouchSmart tx2 gets props for bringing touch to the masses.

HP TouchSmart TX2-1200

 

HP's TouchSmart TX2 is a Tablet PC - a format launched by Microsoft a couple of years ago, which never really caught the public's imagination. Unlike slate-style tablets, there's also a full keyboard, letting you use the TX2 as a regular laptop.

Looks good, well made, comfortable keyboard

Hazy screen, not that light considering size, unexceptional performance

HP TouchSmart tx2

 

The HP TouchSmart tx2 is the world\'s first multi-touch notebook/ tablet PC. It offers a decent spec set and the build quality excellent.

World\'s first consumer multi-touch notebook/ tablet PC. Solid build and decent specs.

Quite pricey and there is only limited multi-touch functionality.
