HP Touchsmart TX2-1015ea tablet PC
HPís Touchsmart TX2 is unusual among Tablet PCs in that itís intended for home use rather than corporate use. Youíll find glossy patterned plastics more in-keeping with the companyís Palivion range than its Compaq machines. The only question is, is there actually a market for touchscreen displays on consumer laptops?
The panel works with both a stylus and fingers, making it easy to navigate the Vista OS. We found it too responsive, however, with the device reacting before weíd even touched the display. As such, itís impossible to rest a palm on the screen when scribbling away with the stylus, forcing you to adopt a more uncomfortable hovering motion.
Although itís a bright and sharp screen, image quality is lessened by the touchscreen technology, with a hazy finish that looks almost greasy. Itís at its worst when viewing small text, where we found it uncomfortable to use over longer periods. (Source: Stephen Patrick, Pocket Lint)
