Reviews for the HP Pavilion tx1150ea
Source: IT Reviews
When you first look at the HP Pavilion TX1150ea you imagine there can't be that much to it. It only weighs 1.92kg, it's a comparatively slimline 22.4 cm x 30.6 cm x 3.13cm and it only has a 12.1-inch screen. A media centre laptop, after all, should be packed full of features, probably a good 3kg in weight and boasting at least a 15-inch screen. But the surprises begin the moment you open the sleek black lid. The screen turns out to be a WXGA, BrightView, widescreen display with integrated touch-screen. In other words you've got a Tablet PC with a pen discreetly concealed at the front of the base, which you can then use in place of a touch-pad or mouse to interact with the data on the screen. In practice, you do have to press quite firmly to get the best results but it could be a handy addition for people on the move who don't want the inconvenience of a mouse. The built-in touch-pad is thoughtfully constructed in a centrally positioned ‘ditch', so you won't accidentally stray across it when you're typing.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150: Integrated graphic card (shared memory) for AMD based laptops (nForce Go 430 MCP). The performance is slightly better than GMA 950.
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-60: First in 90nm, later in 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 1.8 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
