How much would something like this cost new?


When I bought mine a few years back it was £700.

Good points: Looks cool, multimedia quick start, putting silly mustashes and things using the touchscreen, sound.

Bad points: Screen is very glossy, runs hot, poor battery life with slim battery, heavy for a 12.1" laptop, novalty using it as a tablet soon wares off.

So would I spend £400 on one now? Probably not, it doesn't excel in any area.

Looks like a poor deal if you are looking just to surf the web and use basic things like a word processor etc. and want something that you can slip in a bag and not feel to bothered about leaving the charger at home. You can get a decent brand new netbook for about half the price.

Poor deal too if you are after a decent laptop that gives value for money and is portable for occasional use on the go or as replacement desktop. There are loads of better deals out there.

OK deal if you like the touch screen gizmos and finger prints all over your display. And it sounds like the touch screen is too reflective for use in bright places or outdoors.

So I would recommend a Samsung NC10 for people after something very useful, very portable and very reliable. They go for about £290 and you can spend the other £100 on 1TB of external portable storage

or a nice 20inch screen

and still have change from £400.

Hi,

Anyone have any luck finding any stock (for home delivery)?

Tried to put a couple of postcodes from 'down south' but being told it's out of stock in my area.

Cheers.

Just to clarify (and despite what Comet say on their site) this device is a Tablet PC, not a Touchscreen.

You have to use the supplied pen to register taps etc on the screen; fingers don't work (this is so you can rest your palm on the screen whilst writing, drawing etc with the pen without confusing the poor darling)

As mentioned above, these are heavy, hot and the novelty soon wears off. Regardless, if it's something you need it's a good price!

Good deal I have this laptop now you can't compare this to a Samsung or acer one, there is nothing in common.
The touch screen you can use either with your finger or with a pen.
The software of the touch screen recognise if is finger or pen.
I think is a good deal for £400 I paid £700 a year ago I use it everyday for 12 hours no problems so far.
if you want to buy a multimedia laptop with remote and touch screen and built in DVD with light scribe then go for it good memory and decent hard drive.

Thanks; I stand corrected. This model apparently does have a touchscreen as well as a pen digitizer. Cool!

Is the heat on this laptop a real issue, im looking at reviews and it seems to run games OK, but ill be using my main pc for that, im just looking for something i can type on that can play the odd game.
#10
Oh wait don't worry I didn't see that it was reconditioned.

I bought one of these about 9 months ago from HPs website for £680, so I have to admit this is a great price. However, just 2 weeks later I sent it back.

It's a lovely looking laptop, the whole tablet thing is very cool but I found the novelty wore off and I never really used it. The main problem was the HEAT and the CRAZY amount of noise that would come from the headsink. My old Toshiba (still on it now, had it for 4 years+) runs at a whisper and barely gets hot - so I just could not keep it as the difference was massive and I could not stand the noise. Im not kidding - when using on my lap it burnt my leg a few times!

Also, I found it was quick, but not that quick. It has some lovely features and for £400 I think it would make a nice second laptop - although like some people have said you can get something like an NC10 now which does a lot of the same in a much smaller, tidy, quieter packet!

I will vote neutral as price is a good one for this machine, but I just don't know if I could buy one again....

I had one of these and my friend still has one cheap feel to them and run very hot im not a fan but it is a good price as opposed to what they usually sell for.
#13
All laptop have fun and it goes on and off when it need to,again you can't compare this to the samsung nc10.
#14
WARNING: If the screen goes its ALOT to replace other than that awesome deal.
#15
Ok, this is a proper laptop not some trimmed down internet browser, it has dedicated graphics card, decent spec CPU, digital 5.1 output, dvd burner, component and vga output, wireless N, remote control, webcam, decent onboard speakers, finger print scanner, card reader PLUS the added bonus of a proper Wacom based tablet control and touch screen too. Comparing it to a cut down netbook toy is just not even the same ballpark. That is before we get on to the performance comparison or the screen resolution. This machine will happily run things at a usable level such as Photoshop or Vista with no bother at all. The tablet mode in conjunction with Windows Vista is simply a dream to use, especially if you want to do some photo editing or the like.
The bad points (as I have owned one for about 8 months or so)
Noise - the fan is constantly on
Heat is just atrocious, I mean literally uncomfortable to keep it on your lap at times, not just a bit warm.
Build quality is not as good as my previous laptop - trackpad has particularly faired badly with warn paint.
#16
Why are people comparing this to a netbook, they are not the same piece of equipment!

Its the same thing people were doing 12 months ago, bitching about the new netbooks, comparing them to laptops!

:w00t:

Repped :-D
#18
had one and returned it. screen is terrible, grainy, washed-out disaster. unit is heavy for size. build quality is poor, very plasticky. fan is the noisiest i have ever encountered. heat is unbelievable - this thing hits 100 deg c cpu - amd processors are simply second-rate. to circumvent the screen issue i tried driving an external monitor - but seeing as it has no dvi/hdmi you have to use vga - which has a fatal flaw, the vga output is crippled and generates and unacceptable flicker, regardless of your settings. this is a known issue (see the hp section of tablet forums) and was the final straw - i RMA'ed the heap of junk for a full refund.

I am sure some negative comments are referring to the first model tx1000 series, they not the same a lot of improvement from the first model.
They selling for over £400 on ebay so if u not happy as is a matter of opinions you can always shift it there.
#20
Just tried to buy one. What's this "out of stock in your area" nonsense? Does this just mean it's out of stock entirely, and their website is a pile of crap that doesn't tell you until you're half way through ordering it? Or do they have some kind of bizarre system where they will only post stock to certain parts of the country?

Agree totally i have the tx2050ea just over one year old.

I have another laptop with a core duo 1.6 and 2GB RAM and it peees all over the tx2000 2ghz, 4GB Ram.

I will never get another AMD laptop!
#25
Not a good tablet PC. Has AMD processor, while on operation it produces a irritating noise. Gets heated up rapidly, in fact heat is so bad that one can not put it on the lap for more than 15 min. Heat is in fact so powerful that one does not need a radiator during winters to keep warm. Stay away as it is neither a good tablet nor a laptop.

That was quick!

i'm using it. finger does work on the touch screen!

TABLET PC means you can also use finger, not just the stylus.

No, tablet PC means it has a touch screen. Some have passive digitizers (they register any touch including fingers) while others have active digitizers (they can only be used with the provided stylus). Dual digitizers (which register both types of input) are becoming more common these days.
