Reviews for the HP Compaq tc4400

66% HP Compaq tc4400 tablet
Source: CNet English
Common wisdom says that change comes from within, an axiom that HP has taken to heart with the tc4400 tablet PC. Physically identical to its predecessor, the tc4200, the tc4400's updated model number indicates only a refresh of the components inside its case: brand-new Core 2 Duo processors, an updated chipset, room for more RAM, and larger hard drive capacities. Fortunately, the company also dropped the tablet's price to $1,479 (our review unit included a few upgrades that brought the cost to a still-competitive $2,099).

The HP TC4400 convertible Tablet PC is a refresh of the popular TC4200. The TC4400 exterior casing remains essentially the same as the TC4200. The HP TC4400 is a solid, business-class, full-featured Tablet PC convertible. I would recommend this model to consumers and business users looking for a portable, no-nonsense, secure Tablet PC Convertible. The TC4400, with its Core Duo CPU and solid build is powerful and built for the road.

HP's newest convertible, the Compaq tc4400, is out to prove that the age of the sluggish hybrid is over.

The tc4400 has the familiar flat black exterior and the tight, solid response of the Lenovo line.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom core featuring virtualization functions VT-x.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility.
