Reviews for the HP Touchsmart tm2 - 1090eg

85% Review HP Touchsmart tm2 Laptop/Tablet PC | Notebookcheck
A Tablet for Everyone? Whether you prefer to type or handwrite your texts, whether you rather navigate your computer per touchscreen or per touchpad, the HP delivers. On top of that HP promises performance on par with full size laptops and a battery life of up to eight hours. The following review will show, if the 12-inch device meets the expectations.
82% HP TouchSmart TM2 Review
Source: Laptop Logic English
A tablet PC is always a compromise – it obviously has to work well as a touch-screen device, but since a fair share of users will use it as a "regular laptop" more often than as a tablet, it has to offer good usability on that side too. HP has done well with the TouchSmart TM2 tablet. It's a good compromise between usability and exceptional battery life, even if its performance could have been better.

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 Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


SU7300: Slow clocked dual core processor with a low TDP of 10 Watt.» 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.

2.05 kg:

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