We hit up the HP booth and found this demo unit of the new HP tablet chained to a table. Of course, we had to play with it, as evidenced above. The HP Pavilion tx 1000 Tablet PC was running Windows Vista quite nicely on the bright 12-inch screen. I picked the unit up as well and found it to be a tad heavier than I expected; it felt like a 3.5 pound tablet even though it looks like it should weigh less. Then again, I flew in yesterday and my arms are still tired. When I was holding it, I did see some nicey-nice features that made up for my weak arms.

We almost overlooked the integrated webcam at the top of the screen (when in traditional landscape mode) shown here.

This nubby-like touchpad looked good and gave our fingers a nice massage while using it. Hey: we’re all about comfortable computing.

There’s enough ports on the side to keep you happy and mobile; although the picture angle doesn’t really show it, the screen is thinner than it looks.

Here’s the full view money shot. Looks like a nice Tablet; at this point I’ve heard nothing specific on price or availability, but we’ll update when we can of course. This is definitely a convertible I’d love to demo and review, so HP: if you can spare one, I’ll be here through Friday. ;)

  3. This is a beauty. Hopefully a pricetag will be revealed during CES as well…
    Still not sure if I, as a Swede, will take full use of the tablet concept, but hopefully there are some cool features whithin Vista that can convince me.

  4. Are there any specs for this sleek, sweet tablet? :)
    Awww… No Intel Core 2 Duo for this?

    lists the price at $1720 US, with shipping date in Febuary.

    Karl, specs are: 1280×800 12.1-inch widescreen display, 1.8GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile processor, 2GB RAM, 160GB hard-drive, and GeForce 6150, so it will be Aero compliant.

  6. Just got this laptop, i must admit, its pretty and easy to use and has alot of nice features but the biggest feature was the tablet screen. So far i am disappointed with it because it is a reactive not capacitive (means you need to press HARD to get the screen to notice movement). I hope this gets resolved, but other than that its a good laptop for the price.

    1. hey jus wanna know how much is it ?

  7. Very Very VERY BAD Laptod… I hate H.P. for this model and much more Pc’s…. H.P. = bad company
