  • 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...

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.
  • 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...
  • 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.

Review: HP TouchSmart tx2z

Wired
26 January 2009
  • Excerpt: HP has been tinkering with touch tech for a couple of years. But they have yet to nail the bull’s eye with a machine that mixes mature hardware with a haptic interface that feels like more than just a half-assed effort. So, we were cautiously optimistic with the TouchSmart tx2z. The good news?
  • Pros: Fully baked as both a touch and tablet device. Travels well with its compact and stylish chassis. Includes quick keys for rotating screen orientation. Mini media remote and pen conveniently hide away in chassis. Altec Lansing speakers strike decent balance between volume and clarity. Extra goodie...
  • Cons: Bloated OS hinders performance of otherwise decent specs. Occasionally laggy switches between notebook and tablet mode. No multitouch love for the trackpad. Terrible viewing angles and weak visibility in direct sunlight. Fan sounds like a leaf-blower at a My Bloody Valentine show.

HP TouchSmart tx2z Review

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...
