80% HP tx2000z

As with many other things in life, HP’s tx2000z tablet PC http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tablet_PC isn’t perfect, but it isn’t bad, either. On the plus side, we really like its design and appreciate how well it has been engineered to work as a tablet PC. But its compact form and portability are offset by poor battery life that demands a bigger and heavier battery (if not multiples thereof or a big external battery pack). The touchscreen is convenient, but it also introduces some blur to the images that the tx2000z produces on its 12.1" WXGA+ glossy bright screen. All in all, however, we think the HP tx2000z is a very usable tablet PC, and it makes a nice notebook as well. It is well-suited for a student or a traveling professional who doesn’t need a ton of processing power or graphics capability to handle everyday computing needs.

60% HP Pavilion tx2000z Tablet Review

HP has been bringing some thoughtful design to the laptop market for the past few years. This laptop is especially unique -- it’s a convertible notebook with an entertainment focus. The tx2000 seems much faster than the benchmarks it posted, and we didn’t feel hampered by the AMD processor platform. Unfortunately image quality suffers on the touchscreen, lacking the clarity and vibrance of other displays. Also, we found the digitizer to be inaccurate when registering touches, although the inking was easy to use. Calibrating the pen and the screen helped, although the hand writing recognition software found it difficult to read my handwriting. To be fair, it’s not easy for me either. As a laptop, this device is easy to recommend. However, I wasn’t impressed with the accuracy of the active digitizer. I’d like to see what HP brings to the tablet with their next refresh. With a more consistent method of transcribing penstrokes to electronic letters, HP will have a real hit on their hands. Until then, this laptop is only halfway there.

If this 12-inch convertible tablet laptop looks familiar, that's because almost exactly one year ago, we saw HP's first so-called entertainment tablet, the Pavilion tx1000. That system impressed us with media control buttons, dual headphone jacks, and a finger-sensitive touch screen, making for one of the only tablets we've seen to aim beyond the usual corporate or industrial customer base. HP's Pavilion tx2000 combines a convertible tablet design with an entertainment-focused laptop to create an interesting hybrid, thanks to an improved tablet screen and mini remote control.

HP Pavilion tx2000z Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The tx2000z is going to be a hit with all the mainstream users. HP gave this model just what it needed. The active digitizer and touchscreen make this a true tablet PC now, but it still maintains the entertainment notebook status unlike any other model on the market at this time. The mini remote and multimedia buttons are very convenient when conducting a presentation or watching movies. If you want to do some work the pen is responsive for photo editing and taking notes is great. Not only does Vista help with handwriting recognition, but so does the active digitizer and fact you can calibrate the pen. The tx2000z has that personal feel that you don't find in many tablets especially with its sleek glossy appearance.

The HP Pavilion tx2000z's Wacom capabilities make for a much-improved handwriting experience. For the time being, AMD processors are your only option, which is fine for running basic office applications and tablet software, but they tend to produce more heat than their low-voltage Intel competitors. If an optical drive is not a must, the Fujitsu LifeBook T2010 and the Lenovo ThinkPad 61 Tablet are better choices. The HP Pavilion tx2000z is a good second attempt, adding Wacom technology for a better writing experience, but the 2.4-GHz AMD processor can get hot at times.

HP Pavilion tx2050ea review
Source: CNet English
The HP Pavilion tx2050ea is part of the tx2000 series of laptops. That series follows in the intrepid footsteps of the tx1000 series, which combined all the benefits of a standard laptop with those of a tablet PC. The tx2050ea, available for around £600, uses faster components than its predecessor, the tx1020ea, a new form of touchscreen and a slightly tweaked design. We have to admire the HP Pavilion tx2050ea's flexibility. The fact that its screen can be rotated and flipped into tablet mode means its ideal for use in cramped spaces or while standing up. We also love the relatively low price, but the tx2050ea lets itself down due to its bulk, weight and lack of screen quality.

This consumer-focused Tablet PC will look great in any room in the house. The notion of a Tablet PC for home use is something that is still in its infancy, largely due to tablets being seen as business tools and the fact there are very few consumer applications for the Tablet PC. However, the HP Pavilion tx2050ea (£699 inc. VAT) is billed as an 'Entertainment PC', which means it comes with media buttons for accessing your movies and music instead of simply being used for business.

Despite a disappointing screen and some performance issues, the Pavilion tx2050ea is a solid and very affordable Tablet PC targeted at regular consumers rather than business users. Perfect for working and playing in confined spaces, its convertible screen makes it uniquely flexible, while its design makes it both attractive and easy to use. It won't be for everyone, but those who fall for its charms will appreciate them all the more.

HP reviews


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

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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-66:

In 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a slower clocked Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).

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.).


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. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

2.4 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.4 kg:


70.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
