Summary: * A factory design flaw caused thousands of complaints about temperature problems, and an aftermarket custom repair got my used purchase ahead of failure. This model can be looked up on YouTube, for plenty of info. * In addition to adding some thin copper plates inside for better heat distribution, I also chose an SSD, and the little computer does great with Vista. * By no means is this a gaming machine. Buy a newer build for that.
I'VE HAD A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE USING THIS INTRIGUING LABTOP.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I love my Hp Pavilion tx1000 labtop because it is better than a regular computer for various reasons. I like that the laptop is small, compact, I can carry it anywhere and the money I spent on it was very worth it. I had the opportunity to receive a rebate on my Hp labtop and the weight of it is about 10-15 lbs. I like the fact that besides using a password to log onto the labtop, I can have the option of using my fingerreader.
Excerpt: It might not be huge, have a great graphics card or an awesome processor but it's the most stable laptop running windows that I have ever tried, and the touch screen is highly addictive. Also, it is so portable you'll be finding yourself just tucking it in a purse or messenger bag and running off with it. The low battery life isn't really a problem if you bring both batteries, which don't weigh much anyway.
Perfect for travel; great combination between tablet & laptop

Excerpt: I have been looking at this computer for awhile and then my husband decided to get it for me for Christmas. I absolutely love it.It is small, light, does everything, has everything, can hold everything. The screen rotates or lays flat, I can use the stylus, mouse, or touch pad. I can even write on the screen and convert it to text.I also bought a second monitor as I have an HP Power Base.
Excerpt: This laptop is the absolute best. Not only does it have enough power to do everything you may need done, it also it great just for playing games and using the touch screen. It brings a whole new feeling to playing solitare or majong or any card game that comes with it. Great fun.
Excerpt: OK i bought a tx 1000 when i was stationed at fort sam houson tx. words cannot describe the endless hours of enjoyment i got out of this computer a few minor difficultys with the operating system ( i had never used vista before). but overall a great machine voice recognition setup was a cinch plenty of space for whatever you wanted to do with it also the swivel screen was awesome and touchscreen even more convienent.
Excerpt: The HP Pavilion tx1000 tablet is a slick, cool looking tablet. It's also durable. The tablet software on it is great but, the performance is just horrible. First, the processor is extremely slow. I upgraded to the AMD Turion 64x2 Mobile but it's still slow. It takes 3 minutes for mmy computer to boot and be ready (I don't have alot of trash that slows that down). Second, the graphics card is horrible.
Excerpt: I acquired the HP Pavilion tx 1000 a few months ago after much research. I didn't want a 17 inch monitor but something that was relatively small and still readable. My 12 inch HP fits the bill perfectly. I was a bit leary of Vista as an operating system but once getting used to it, everything works fine. Had to add Office program to give me the flexibility that I need for spreadsheets, etc. No problem - everything is up and running perfectly.
Excerpt: My friend bought this computer, and cracked the screen. She gave me this computer cause she doesn't like it as much as her, HP special Edition L2000 (Lance Armstrong Live Strong version).So the touch screen don't work anymore cause of the crack... I thought it was pretty cool that it was a touch screen, and that the screen can rotate. And it had a remote so when you watched DVD's. I would say the picture was good on it, minus the crack.
Excerpt: This hp tx1000 laptop is easily the worst purchase of my life. The first laptop I bought died after about two weeks and took two months (and about 20 phone calls) before I was finally given a replacement by hp. The replacement hp basically stopped working bit by bit: - First I made the mistake of taking out the removable DVD drive. The system never recognized it again.
