HP Pavilion tx1000: slick, sleek and svelte



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. ;)




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


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.

Tobias, Slashgear
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.


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


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.
