Summary: HP's Pavilion tx2000 combines a convertible tablet design with an entertainment-focused laptop to create an interesting hybrid, thanks to an improved tablet screen and mini remote control.
Pros: Dual-mode active pen and touch screen makes tablet use easier and more accurate than last year's model; includes credit-card remote control; excellent battery life; handy controls built into lid.
Cons: Slightly bigger and heavier than a 12-inch laptop should be; limited configuration options; battery is large and makes for slightly awkward setup; missing a FireWire jack.
Excerpt: HP’s tx2000z is something that we don’t actually see a whole lot of: a tablet designed for home users. Despite having been around for a few years now, tablet PCs have grown a more secure foothold in the business segment than the home one. We still see tablets aimed at students and creative home users, but the primary focus in the tablet world has been in very light models designed for business users, like the ThinkPad tablet or the HP 2710p.
Summary: The tx2000 is going to be a hit with all the mainstream users. HP gave this model just what it needed. The active digitizer and touchscreen make this a true Tablet PC now, but it still maintains the entertainment notebook status unlike any other model on the market at this time. The mini remote and multimedia buttons are very convenient when editing photos or watching movies. If you want to do some work the pen is responsive and taking notes is great.
