More on the HP TX2000

Finally, there's some more information on the web about HP's new TX2000 tablet PC (i.e. not just specs). Again, it's thanks to the crew at CES 2008 and, as with the Toshiba M700 (which I wrote about earlier), they've done a quick hands-on video review of it.

Stuff learnt from this video: (1) it's a multimedia tablet aimed squarely at the consumer market; (2) it is a little heavy, though; (3) the multi-touch features seem to work well and the wide screen display seems really nice; (4) it has some nifty multimedia features like a TV tuner, S-video output, Altec Lansing speakers, and a video camera; and (5) it has a 64-bit, dual-core AMD Turion processor. Other than that, it's a pretty standard tablet PC. Oh, and it's pretty decent on the pricing too, coming to about US$2,500 for a maxed-out version (while a maxed-out Toshiba is for about US$2,600).

However, as with the Toshiba, I can't wait for GBM to do full hardware Inkshow on this machine. I'm also looking forward to GBM's Dell XT Inkshow. Once all three go up, I'll do a side-by-side comparison of my current top-five -- the Lenovo ThinkPad X61T, Fujitsu LifeBook T4220, Toshiba Portege M700, HP Pavilion Tx2000z, and Dell Latitude XT -- and see how they stack up against each other. That should be fun.
