Hi All, I bought a tx2513cl at costco about two months ago. In that time I have really enjoyed the experience of owning a tablet. I'm in real estate and tablets are great for our business. The bad news is My tx2500 has been in the shop 3 times in those two months. I chose not send it to hp because I just cant be without my computer for 2+ weeks at a time so I used a local repair shop. Heres what went wrong. After one month the power plug got wobbly and would only charge if I positioned the plug just right. The tx2500 has pretty bad battery life so when the plug was in the wrong position it would kill the battery quicky. Then I'd have to reposition the cord and wait for it to power up enough to reboot. Frustrating to say the least. What happened was the solder points on the dc jack became loose. I had the repair shop resolder it to the mother board and epoxy the jack to eliminate the wobble. About a week later it would'nt boot up at all. Took it to the shop and turns out the hard drive went bad. I had them replaced the hard drive but now with Vista reloaded its acting funny. Some programs wont load and some settings for the tablet still need tweaking.. Pain in the ass... One more week goes by and now the computer wont charge at all because the jack itself is bad and they are having a hard time finding a replacement. I'm pretty discouraged at this point with the tx2500. I use my PC in the car, at appointments and at home so I do plug it in and out quite a bit. The dc jack just cant take the abuse i'm giving it, I guess. The hard drive is common week spot I'm learning. Anyway if your planning on using this thing for business at multiple locations a day you may want to buy a better machine. If anyone has a suggestion for a tougher tablet let me know.
