Reviews for the HP TouchSmart tm2t

50% HP TouchSmart tm2t
Source: Laptop Mag English
Even if the iPad didn’t exist, we wouldn’t recommend the HP TouchSmart tm2. Its touchpad is one of the worst we’ve used. But the fact that Apple’s slate is now available to the masses makes this convertible an even tougher sell. Consumers who know better will no longer tolerate a tablet that doesn’t change screen orientation automatically based on how you’re holding the device, and they’ll scratch their heads wondering why it takes so long for TouchSmart’s apps to load when there’s a Core i3 processor under the hood. And although we give HP credit for trying to build on top of Windows 7, the OS simply can’t compete with the iPad when it comes to touch-enabled apps. We still like the idea of a tablet with a full-size keyboard--and see the merit of stylus-based input for some--but this product disappoints.

Thanks to the Apple iPad, tablet computers are a concept recently discovered by countless consumers, but a contingent of die-hard road warriors and business-laptop users have been using them for years. Unlike most ultraportable convertible tablets, the tm2t includes switchable graphics, features strong battery life, and doesn't cost too much.

HP TouchSmart tm2t Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
The HP TouchSmart tm2t has a lot to offer and is solidly built. It is a great student laptop in many ways: it offers an easy way to take class notes via the pen input, battery life is very good, the design is attractive and the aluminum construction makes it durable yet not too heavy to be portable. The main drawbacks to the tm2t is that it uses a low voltage processor, so it’s not the fastest PC out there, and some of the software drivers such as the touchpad and touchscreen are buggy and could do with some tweaking out of the box.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs. 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.
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.

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.

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