Reviews for the HP Pavilion tx2050ea
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.

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.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
