    Hello, I wasn't sure where to post this. If I have posted this in the wrong section please let me know.

    I was recently given a laptop pc as a present. The prior owner knows little to nothing about computers and bought it from a sales person at Best Buy a while back having been told it was the latest thing. It is the HP Paviolion Touchsmart Tablet Laptop ( tx2000 or tx2500 ). Outside on the case near to the screen it says the number is tx2000, but when I look in Control Panel > System > General it says the system is tx2500. How can it be both? Does this mean the laptop was tampered with at some point? How can I find out which model it really is? I'm looking to do some upgrades but need to know the model number.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my question. Any replies would be a great help.

    in the future please search before you post please, this question has been addressed numerous times.

    The tx2500 uses the same chassis as the tx2000 and as such still has the tx2000 label on it. It is essentially an upgraded a tx2000 the difference between the two models is essentially the graphics card/chipset. The tx2000 has the Nvidia chipset which is problematic...has lots of reported hardware failure, due to disentegration of the gpu...due to heat...of which the amd processor is likely contributory & the tx2500 uses an ati chipset/graphics card combo the ATI Radeon 3200HD
