Reviews for the HP Touchsmart tx2z-1020us

80% HP tx2z 1020US (TouchSmart)
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The HP TouchSmart tx2z is a great deal-- it's got serious processing power and most of the trimmings of a full sized notebook in a 12" tablet chassis. We love the multi-touch technology from N-trig and it really shines in Windows 7. Multi-touch is the way of the future in the Windows world, and the tx2z is ready now. HP's Reaction Imprint finish looks great and build quality is very good. If you're looking for a tablet that is powerful enough to be your primary notebook, the TouchSmart does the job and for much less money than other all-arounders like the Toshiba M750. Drawbacks for the budget sticker? The AMD platform requires more fan action and this bugger can get loud. The viewing angle is limited which means you'll need to angle it just right to get the best brightness and colors when in tablet mode.

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.
ZM-82:
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.

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.

2.1 kg:

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

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

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).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
