Reviews for the HP Pavilion tx2500z

HP tx2500z Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
I think a decision to buy the tx2500z really comes down to whether you think having Tablet functionality will benefit you much in your school studies. Taking notes electronically in class is definitely a powerful and handy thing to have. You do have to be a bit geeky or willing to learn the ins and outs of the Tablet features of Windows Vista, but once you’re used to using the pen input functionality and put in the time necessary to learn how to use Microsoft OneNote properly (or whichever note taking software you go with) then you’re definitely empowered. Many textbooks come in electronic versions these days, so if you can consolidate taking notes and carrying books to a Tablet PC then you’re golden (just make sure to back everything up at the end of each day to an external drive so you don’t lose a lot of precious information). Are there better Tablet PC and notebook convertibles than the tx2500z? Definitely there are, this is not the most solid feeling Tablet I’ve used and it runs darn hot, but once you look at the price you pay for a better convertible notebook (about twice the price) then you’ll probably be willing to accept some of the drawbacks of the tx2500z.

70% HP Pavilion tx2500z

With configurations starting at $1,049 ($1,703 as tested), the Pavilion tx2500z is certainly much better in the graphics department than its predecessor, and AMD’s new Turion X2 Ultra processor provides plenty of pep. However, while the dual-mode touchscreen adds functionality, it continues to detract from the viewing quality. Moreover, we’d like to see HP do more with this convertible by adding some of the same cool touch applications it now offers on its TouchSmart PC. Despite a few weaknesses, we recommend the tx2500z for those who want multimedia muscle combined with a smooth Tablet experience.

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.

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

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

AMD Turion X2 Ultra: The AMD Turion X2 Ultra is part of the Puma platform and a mixture of the old K9 core (form the Turion 64 X2) and some parts of the K10 architecture (memorycontroller, hypertransport, crossbar switch from the Phenom). Because of the increased L2 cache ("Ultra" CPUs) and the improved memory controller, the performance increased a bit. Still a similar clocked Core 2 Duo is noticably faster.


Mixture out of two K8 based cores and K10 uncores (e.g. memory controller). Offers improved power saving functions compared to older Turion CPUs but still not as good and fast as a Core 2 Duo. The ZM-80 is the slowest CPU of the ZM series and a entry level CPU in 2008.

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 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).

70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
