I guess I'll start the review by stating if this purchase is going to be worth your while, depends on the price. I paid $850 off a Slickdeal when HP had $300 off coupon, now that considered, I am EXTREMELY satisfied with it, with the additional options I added on it ended up being around $1000US. It is configured as follows 2 ghz Dual Core AMD 2 gb ram (upgraded with aftermarket) 160 gb hard drive Touchscreen Dvd Cd Burner with Lightscribe Nvidia video card (only option) 6-cell battery Fingerprint reader Web-cam Bluetooth ABG Wireless (Non-N) Remote Media card reader EXTREMELY gorgeous finish Ill try to keep it short and sweet so . and Ill also mention that Im not a demanding user, just Photoshop maybe Adobe Premiere and some audio/video editing (no gaming). Pro's >The Tx1000 is pretty snappy with Vista and 2gb of ram, navigating windows is pretty much instantaneous. >Programs open with speed (Photoshop, Limewire, Premiere Pro open in abt 5-10 sec). >On idle with sidebar running I have about 1.3gb of ram free, >Battery last a good 2 ½ hours with aggressive power-saving and at screen brightness 60%. >Touchscreen is fun and can come in handy with Photoshop, etc, I have noticed a break-in period though, it is much easier to use now then when new. >Plenty of HD space >Good Wi-fi Antennae range (depending on router of course) >Nice Keyboard for such small size >All right handwriting recognition >Decent Speakers >Non-finicky fingerprint reader >The finish is beautiful compared to most other drab consumer laptops Con's >Runs very hot and fan will always be on (AMD!) (Friend has 15.4 HP with Intel and it never runs as hot as mine) >NOT A TABLET REPLACEMENT! I would like to state that this WILL NOT take the place of a real tablet with active digitizer, you have to apply a lot of pressure for recognition, and would not be suitable for painting, drawing, etc. >Screen Graininess- there is noticeable graininess in the screen due to the touch screen dots (you can see them with the screen off) it is especially noticeable on white backgrounds. (My wallpaper is predominantly black for this reason) But this is a trade-off for touch screen. >Battery protrudes off back about 1 inch, not extremely detrimental but it would much slicker with a flush battery >Touch screen stays in previous mode that it was in at shutdown until Windows logon (again, nitpicking) >No option for dedicated video card >Media card reader eats MS Pro cards, this is possibly the case with all card readers, but my MS Pro stick out of phone gets lost in the bay (cant grab with fingernails), I have an extension I use to correct this. >Stylus holder has somehow broken (instead of popping in and out, you can now just pull it out, but it catches on something?) Now you can see most of the cons are just me nitpicking You get what you pay for people, So bottom line if you can find it below $1000, buy it! $1200? and up . . I think youd be better off spending a little bit more and getting a real professional tablet. Im open to questions, thanks for taking time read this and I hope it helps someone.
