Machines that Go Bing!
2 October 2009
  • 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...

1 July 2009
  • Excerpt: We’re unabashed fans of HP’s Touch-Smart desktop machines, so we were really looking forward to getting our digits on the new technology in a convertible touch-screen notebook PC. But our eager anticipation only made the reality of the TouchSmart tx2 all that more disappointing.
  • 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.
  • 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.

HP TouchSmart tx2-1020ea

CNET
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.
  • Cons: Only supports two-fingered multitouch gestures; expensive.

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...
