Reviews for the HP TouchSmart tm2-1010ea

70% HP TouchSmart tm2-1010ea Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
With the recent surge in the popularity of tablets thanks to the Apple iPad, you would expect the variety of tablet-laptops to have increased as well. Unfortunately, this is not yet the case. Here in the UK at least, the only easily available, sub-£1,000 options for a convertible tablet are the Packard Bell Butterfly Touch and Acer Aspire 1825 – and of course HP's TouchSmart tm2, which we're looking at today.

The HP TouchSmart tm2-1010ea tries to be both a tablet and laptop, but it ends up falling between two stools. Unless you're dead set on owning a swivelling, convertible machine, we'd recommend you opt for a more powerful laptop, such as the cheap, 17.3-inch Samsung R730, which will better serve your media needs. On the other hand, if you're sure you want a tablet, the tm2-1010ea probably isn't what you're looking for, because it's fairly heavy and the touchscreen interface is slightly too clunky.

With a strong range of touch software installed as standard, the HP TouchSmart tm2-1010ea has a sharp and well supported touchscreen display. Its solid build, incredible portability and impressive features round off this strong contender, making it a worthy award winner.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550: The HD 4550 is a faster clocked HD 4530 and therefore entry level graphics card. It was substituted by the HD 5430 with the same clock rates.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


SU4100: Entry-level dual core processor for slim and light subnotebooks. Due to the Pentium name, the CPU may have less power saving features than Core 2 Duo processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1":

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.

2.2 kg:

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