HP TouchSmart tx2-1020ea

30 March 2009
  • Summary: The HP TouchSmart tx2-1020ea is attractive, robust and offers decent performance, but its multitouch capability is disappointing. The majority of multitouch gestures will only work within HP's MediaSmart suite of applications, and the tx2-1020ea can't recognise those made using three or more...
  • Pros: Robust and stylish design; makes full use of Vista's tablet PC features.

HP TouchSmart tx2-1020ea review

25 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The tx2-1020ea is similar in design to the tx2130ea, with both being tablet touchscreen laptops. The case is sturdily built, with rounded edges and a smart, glossy metallic finish. The keyboard and touchpad are both of a good standard.

HP TouchSmart tx2

26 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Since their inception tablet PCs have been given a bit of a bad wrap. Can HP change their fortune with the multi-touch capable tx2? The concept behind tablet PCs is very noble. Take a regular notebook and enable the screen to turn and fold onto the keyboard.
  • Pros: World\'s first consumer multi-touch notebook/ tablet PC. Solid build and decent specs.
  • Cons: Quite pricey and there is only limited multi-touch functionality.
