Reviews for the HP Pavilion tx1138ea

80% Is the tablet making a comeback?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The HP Pavilion tx1138ea is an interesting idea and one we enjoyed playing with. If you like to carry your notebook around with you and can see the logical use of having a touchscreen, this is a pleasingly affordable and powerful device. The only fault we had with it was the choice of screen, as it simply isn’t up to the job of watching movies on.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 / 6150 is an integrated graphics card of the NVIDIA nForce Go 430 MCP for AMD Turion notebooks. It doesn't have any integrated memory, but uses a part of the mainmemory (up to 128 MB) like the direct competitor Intel GMA 950. Therefore, the gaming performance is quite moderate and can only be used for elder games.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-56:

In 90nm (33W TDP) and 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.8 GHz. The TL-56 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.
