Summary: From opening the box there was trouble. The battery it came with would not hold a charge, then the CD drive would pop out whenever it felt like, the second week the keys started falling off, the touch screen would not function right even with an upgraded touch-pen.
Summary: I love this laptop. I bought it used on Amazon many months ago and I've gone through no problems at all. The battery doesn't last too long, so I just take the battery out and keep the computer plugged in.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in 2009 because I needed the ability to draw and have the capacity to store large documents. Unfortunately, this laptop only works for 6 months than it fails. Since I have own this laptop I have replaced the hard drive every 6-months.
Summary: Loaded with bloatware. Constanly crashes; touch screen was lost for a year and eventually came back by itself! Customer service sucks. After three years of moderate use it went to sleep mode and never recovered. I had not even used DVD drive or sd card readers.
Summary: I've had this laptop for nearly a year and I've had no problems with it. It runs fine although the fan is quite loud (in Windows, the fan runs all the time because the processor is constantly at 30%. Thanks Vista and HP's bloatware. In Linux the fans rarely come on when I'm taking notes).
Summary: I bought my tx2500 back in mid 2008 and is still with me here in Dec 2011... It has endured years of transit travel rattle, long study sessions and calculations. Music, video, programming, photoshop, gaming you name it== which works fine for the most part, if not noisily and particularly always...
Summary: I bought this laptop before and was very very disappointed! It has blackscreen problem. I searched on internet and found other people also had such issue. It has hardware design bug which causing overheating. I threw away the laptop and bought a new one. I will not buy any hp laptop in the future.
Summary: HP's quality are being probed and many laptops recalled in Asia now. Quite a few models are being reported with display problems. The US models are not much better. My own $1000 laptop broke down right after warranty period and the customer service manager said "we can't do any thing for you.
Summary: I think most everything's been said here about this seductively designed tablet PC. Its style, features and pricing lure you into buying it but when you get it home, you find that its beauty is skin deep. - It runs slowly - It runs HOT - Ouch!
