Reviews for the HP TouchSmart tm2-2050er
Yes I know it’s been a long time since I have reviewed any HP PC’s but once a company changes agencies it often takes a long time to get involved again. It is a little ‘curates egg’ like and I think you would definitely want to try it before you buy as the back heavy nature of the unit could be a problem for some, it has to back heavy to accommodate the twist screen action of it. The final drawback is the price.

Unfortunately, at this price the HP TouchSmart TM2 is too slow to be a decent laptop, and way too heavy and clumsy to be desirable as a tablet.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450: Entry level DirectX 11 graphics card with a similar clock speed (and performance) as the HD 4570 but at a lower power consumption.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
U5400: Entry level dual core CPU of the Arrandale series. Does not support Turbo Boost (for the CPU), Hyperthreading, Virtualization and AES. Due to the slow clock speed, the performance is only sufficient for non demanding applications.» 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.
