    As big of a fan of the TX line as I am (despiite the fact that it only offers AMD processors) I find the passive touch digitizer extreemely useless. lets get rid of this thing HP!!!

    • first of all, it can be fairly innacurate.
    • second it makes the screen have to be almost as thick as the computer
    • not to mention the thick bezel
    • it isnt multitouch
    • it uses power
    • it is one of the least durable touch technologies.
    • and finally it makes our screens look like crap.

    Adding a multitouch would be a little silly, as I think the TX lines strength is its performance to price ratio.

    I would tell HP to keep the touch and keep the active digitizer. Add blu-ray and HDMI above all keep the price low! There's a couple of fancy laptops that are light and are touch/multi touch capable. You just need to pay out some money. HP's niche is the student and casual tablet user, not the power business users. I guess the business people have the 2710 too.

    I use the touch all the time. Though I've got a tx1000, so thats all I have. But if HP could come out with a new touch function for the same price, (without the grainy screen, thicker notebook, etc.) then I'd be all for it.

    eko2, can the touchscreen be disabled though? since power consumption is one of your concerns?

    You removed the touch screen? Isn't that the whole point of the tablet though?

    If i remember correctly, dwolf123 had cracked his screen, and that was the reason to remove it.

    I picked #2 assuming it didn't cost much more.
