    By that, I mean the series is the only one I have seen classified as a multimedia tablet targeted towards consumers. In fact, its only targeted towards consumers. All other tablet PCs I have seen are targeted towards businesses and professionals. Or are there others like the TX series out there?

    I am surprised with the latest TX2500 incarnation, they still have not added HDMI out to it. I have never owned a tablet, but they have caught my eye. The TX series seems the best for me, I just wish they used Intel processors and a much better screen, maybe LED backlit. Its just too dim and grainy for me.

    I am interested if the future models may incorporate the ATI XGP technology thats to come out soon and is exclusive to AMD. :)

    it's the only consumer tablet, and for the price point i think its unlikely it will ever have hdmi (at least not until it becomes common for all laptops to have it)

    HDMI and eSATA, like my HP Dragon (HDX9010nr) laptop has, would have made my TX2500z the perfect tablet.

    Only thing that sux is it came with a HD DVD drive and two weeks after I bought it Toshiba said they'd stop making them. :( New version of the Dragon laptop comes with a Blueray drive instead, and the ATI 2600 XT card in it was bumped up from 256 megs (dedicated) to 512. Oh well... if I had just waited a month or two longer....

    Anywho, my little tx2500 can do just about everything the dragon does and it's a whole lot easier to carry around. ;)

    The HDX Dragon is by HP, are you referring to another machine?
