HP Touchsmart TX2

Techworld
18 November 2009
  • Summary: 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 touch capabilities are more a gimmick than a useful addition.

  • Conclusion: The TouchSmart tx2 screen is a backlit 12.1-inch LED affair with a resolution of 1200 x 800 pixels. The multitouch feature can read up to two fingers or a stylus. That doesn’t seem to compare too well with Dell’s Latitude XT notebooks which can track up to five digits but bare in mind that there is virtually no mainstream software out there capable of using this feature.

HP TouchSmart tx2

1 July 2009
  • Summary: We made many allowances for the performance of HP’s touch-screen desktops, with the caveat that they shouldn’t be a Maximum PC reader’s only computer. We can’t do the same for a notebook. And while we can ignore the TouchSmart tx2’s crappy gaming performance—no one buys an ultra portable to play games—we can’t ignore this machine’s other shortcomings and high price tag.
  • Pros: Outstanding touch screen; excellent handwriting recognition.
  • Cons: Heavy for an ultra portable; loud under load; poor performance; expensive.

HP TouchSmart tx2z

MobileTechReview.com
28 May 2009
  • Conclusion: The HP TouchSmart tx2z is a great deal-- it's got serious processing power and most of the trimmings of a full sized notebook in a 12" tablet chassis. We love the multi-touch technology from N-trig and it really shines in Windows 7. Multi-touch is the way of the future in the Windows world, and the tx2z is ready now. HP's Reaction Imprint finish looks great and build quality is very good.
  • Pros: Great price for the features, N-trig active digitizer with capacitive multi-touch is great., Great value for the price. The TouchSmart tx2z has the power and features of a standard notebook packed into a 12" tablet PC. The dual purpose N-trig digitizer brings us the best of both worlds: an active pen and capacitive multi-touch. Ready for Windows 7 touch. Fast CPU, large hard drive, dual layer DVD burner, WiFi, Bluetooth and ATI graphics make this an all-around machine...
  • Cons: noisy fan, courtesy of AMD CPU, battery life is so-so., Fan is loud when the notebook is plugged in and working moderately hard. Limited display viewing angle and some graininess.

  • Summary: You can buy a TouchSmart tx2 for as little as $1,000; tricking this one out with nearly every available option (faster CPU, more memory, bigger hard drive, Bluetooth, 802.11n, larger battery, etc.) pushed the price tag to $1,675. And while we can ignore the TouchSmart tx2’s crappy gaming performance—no one buys an ultra portable to play games—we can’t ignore this machine’s other shortcomings and high price tag.
  • Pros: Outstanding touch-screen; excellent handwriting recognition.

HP TouchSmart tx2z

LAPTOP Magazine
19 December 2008
  • Summary: The HP TouchSmart tx2z is certainly innovative, and its brighter, more-accurate display is an improvement over the tx2500z. Plus, it offers a cool design and very good speakers. However, the multi-touch experience—which adds a $300 premium over the tx2500z—proved somewhat of a letdown; it just wasn’t fast or responsive enough. Nevertheless, the TouchSmart tx2z is a solid Tablet PC that offers a good balance of performance and battery life.
  • Pros: Specially designed touch interface for multimedia, Several gestures work on any application and Web page, Attractive design, Good battery life,
  • Cons: Finicky touch performance, Slow boot time and hard drive, No multimedia buttons,
