So! I figured I would right a review on my laptop. Rather then just another review of the laptop when it was brand new, I figured a review after 1/2 a year of daily use would help some people decide. I bought my tx2500 at the start of Oct 2008 4GB Ram AMD Turion X2 Ultra dual-core mobile zm-86 2.40GHz Windows Vista Home Preminium 64 Bit No Finger print scanner(BOO, does anyone know if it would be possible to install one? Or would I have to buy a whole new LCD screen?) 8Cell Battery 300Gb HD Purchased off Ebay. Im not about to do any 3dmark tests or anything like that. Check http://www.tabletpcreview.com/default.asp?newsID=1217 For scores and pictures. So, to sum up the experience I have had in one word....OMGWTFBBQ. Over all the laptop has been great! I am still using the standard vista install, I removed all the "Bloat ware" although there was nothing to crazy installed, just a few apps. Touch Screen And Tablet The tablet feature works great, personally I do not like the touch screen, it is inaccurate and a pain to use while on power saver mode(works okay in High performance mode) I have had it turned off for the last 4 months, and nearly forgot that it had the feature. But the wacom tablet function is AMAZING. There is nothing like being able to brows your computer and media with a pen(Hates touch pads on laptops). The pen is super accurate and works great for drawing and digital media. I would like to say that although the Tablet is very handy, it is not very efficient for writing for along period of time. Don't expect this to replace typing, it is nice for navigating and drawing small notes and pictures during class, but it is rare that I ever keep my laptop is slate mode, as I you need accese to the keyboard fairly regularly. LCD Screen The screen itself is decent, I wish I could have the touch screen portion removed because it does cause alittle bit of graininess but only if you really look for it. Other then that, the added strength of the screen due to its need to be touched is amazing. They should build all lcds this sturdy. I can't count the number of times people have told me I shouldn't touch my LCD, only to then (lightly) punch it(the lcd...not the person ) and laugh. Overall performance Overall performance is great for daily applications and use. Unless i'm playing a game I keep my laptop in power saver mode as there is no real need for the extra heat that is created from running it at 100%(Even while its plugged in). Programs load fast and are very responsive this laptop puts alot of "Budget" machines in the same price range to shame. Gaming performance I do not use the laptop for to much gaming, but I do play the following. Half life2(Portal, garrys mod, TF2) I use my main computer for gaming, so most of the time I just stick to that. But its does run most source games at 100%, other then TF2 Battery life Battery life is So so, it could be better, but it is enough. I have yet to be in a situation where I have run out of battery life(unless I forgot to charge it first ) But generally I just take it to friends houses and use it around the house or at school. Overall Over all the tx2500 is amazing. I am very happy with it overall and I don't regret buying it one bit. its small size(yet not to small) makes it nice to carry around with you and still provides amazing results. People complain about heat, so far it does get fairly hot(never to the point where I have had to stop using it) I imagine as we get more into summer it might get worse. but Its summer! shouldn't be spending it on a laptop anyway ^-^ if it were to get stolen today I would definitely go buy anew one in a flash. Well thats about it....Any questions? idk if I missed anything so feel free to ask!
