    to corwinspyre, you are to use your finger, but don't expect a soft fluid use like with the iphone, the passive screen requires pressure, think old school pda.

    Yeah, you're right about that. I made sure to have a video of them showing off the TX2000's touchscreen capabilites at some conference (from when they debued it, I think), and that shut him up this time. After, they gave links to the updated video drivers and latest bios update, so hopefully that will do something. I'm at work, so I can't try until tonight

    Well, I'm pressing to the point where I'm afraid it would break if I pushed anymore. I've used my brother's TX1000, which only has the passive digitizer, so I don't think it's me. Also, I'm sure to keep the pen away from the screen when using my finger, since that deactivates the passive digitizer. The other weird thing is that the calibration program won't work for both the pen or touch. I can click anywhere on the screen with the calibration program open, and it doesn't do anything.

    Hopefully the bios update will do something. I don't image updating the video drivers will.

    The FedEx facility manager from LA is not a reader of this forum. :( As my package is just sitting (since Monday morning) in LA, but they are not delivering it. I guess it has a delivery date of July 2. It is just tough to see that it is just sitting at the FedEx facility and its not being delivered to me until July 2 because the date said so. :(

    I think I know the reason for my extended delay. I ordered with the 2.4 processor. I guess they're still running short on those....

    Nate,
    I'm almost positive it's the configurations that are causing certain people delays. It's most likely the processors, since they have removed the 2.4Ghz model from the options. I am with you on the waiting, mine was estimated to ship 5 days ago, and delayed until yesterday. It still hasn't shipped. However, after giving an HP rep who had access to about as much infomation as I did (very little) some trouble, I was able to get a $30 refund to my credit card for the 2nd delay (although they wouldn't admit it was delayed again).

    Still waiting. (btw a good song by Sum41 lol)

    I don't think it is solely a shortage of processors. Some people who have ordered the 2.4Ghz with a later build date have already recieved their laptops.

    Mine was scheduled to ship the 26th, delayed to yesterday, and it still has not shipped. When I call, all they can say is that they don't have a tracking number yet, call again tomorrow.

    I even tryed asking for the 'shipping specialist' and they just said that the specialist is busy and they can't escalate the call because the system will notify me.

    HP's system is just dysfunctional.

    And also, the last HP rep I talked to said that HP sends delayed products with expedited shipping, for those of you wondering why FedEx is shipping them so quickly.

    That is the correct battery. The tx2500 is considered part of the tx2000 series (and so it is silk screened on to my laptop).
