Reviews for the HP TouchSmart tm2-2050us

HP TouchSmart tm2-2050us 12.1-inch Touchscreen Ultraportable Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English

With a price of roughly $900, the HP TouchSmart tm2-2050us is a very affordable option for those looking at an ultraportable laptop that can also double as a tablet PC. Performance is solid thanks to the new Core i3 ultra-low voltage processor and it has a surprisingly larger hard drive. It isn't without its faults though including a touchscreen that is very glossy that can be difficult to see in certain light and a battery pack that adds a bit too much bulk.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

330UM: The Core i3-330UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops without Turbo Boost and AES functions. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
