Summary: I built this into a bar counter in my living room with my DJ kit to function as a touch pad to bring saved music files into the Mixer. Swivels back to the other side of the bar (customer side) to function as a PC.
Summary: I've had my TM2 for over 2 years now - it's still going strong and I've absolutely no desire to upgrade. A new laptop would be nice, sure, but my TM2 is chugging along and it does everything I need it to do. It's small, sweet, functional and practical. As an artist, I love being able to open Photoshop, take out the pen and do some work wherever I am. I love not being tied to my desk! The touchscreen is so handy.
Summary: I bought this in April of 2010 and it just now finally gave out on me. That doesn't sound like a long life, but let's look at what my poor baby went through before dying. It has taken long treks around my college campus, been pushed off desks, dropped, and fell off the seat of my van more times than I can count. It lasted through the daily wear of being a total nerd's primary computer for three years. I literally did not use a desktop that entire time.
Excerpt: I saw the HP TouchSmart Tx2 Notebook PC on a late night infomercial and decided to buy it. I was very excited when I initially got it. It was small, sleek just what I needed for travel. After a few months several keys fell off which I had to send to HP to get replaced. The power strip also stopped working after a about three months. The battery life is very short so you better have a power source for travel. If you play on-line games this is not the laptop to play on.
Excerpt: When I first received this product, I was unbelievably enthusiastic and overwhelmingly excited not just because it was new and it was the original computer that I wanted when I first started checking out computers, but I was overwhelmed because my other HP Laptop, the dv5210 had just been stolen unfortunately 2 weeks before my birthday,so imagine my surprise when this one, the HP TouchSmart Laptop arrived 5 days before my birthday.
The touchsmart laptop is alright for making art, so i'm content.

Excerpt: I bought this computer because I wanted a touchscreen so that I could make better digital art, since I can see what I'm drawing underneath my pen. I managed to get a version of Photoshop along with the computer, which was nice, but it turned out not to have some of the capabilities I wanted.
The HP Touchsmart tm2 is a great tablet...with only a few issues

Excerpt: The HP touchsmart tm2 is a great tablet. The build quality, as compared to most HP computers, is exceptional, at least as far as the case goes. The metal case looks great, and the swivel mechanism is very solidly built. The speakers are excellent, and the screen is pretty high quality. The chiclet keyboard is very easy to use and feels great, and the touchscreen is very responsive. My biggest complaint with the computer so far has been with the operating system.
