Istarted off with the HP tx2110 (?). It was the top of line being sold at Circuit City. I have to say that if it wasn't for the fact that it actually burned my legs (not just warm but actual first degree burns) I would have kept it over the Gateway. Pros: I like the smaller size, lighter, fingerprint reader on the bezel so you could use it in tablet mode, quick launch buttons on the bezzel, actual touch screen that you didn't need the Wacom pen for, and I just liked it better. The cons are: The screen is not as good as the gateway and it burns you. The touch screen did make writing on it different than the GW and you really needed to make sure you lifted your pen between letters otherwise it captured your strokes between the letter, which was kind of annoying. Some would say that the smaller screen is a con but the smaller screen actually had a few more lines of resolution that actually made a difference on how much stuff you could see on the scree. That being said, I am still very happy with my 142XL. If HP came out with an intel tablet I would however sell this one the same day. Someone mentioned a screen protector. I'm not 100% sure but it seems to me that my screen is actually a glass cover over the real screen. I don't think I could scratch this thing unless I took my car keys to it.
