HP tx2500z: Performing & Decently Priced Tablet PC to Consider

No, it’s not an upside down or wrong side up laptop. It is a tablet pc. A tablet pc looks like a laptop but it has a swiveling screen which you can write on digitally. It’s like having a laptop & a wacom tablet in a single device. The biggest hurdle for the tablet pc to be more popular than the laptop is its price. But the price factor is looking to be a thing of the past with the HP tx2500z.

In the past, tablet PCs cost about double that of any laptop. Now, you can buy the HP tx2500z for less than USD$1000 which is cheaper than many typical medium range laptops. Mind you, the performance is not too shabby too with the HP tx2500z. It’s got a more powerful AMD Turion X2 Ultra dual-core Mobile ZM-86 2.40GHz than its HP tx2000z predecessor, smaller 12” monitor, & an integrated ATI Radeon HD 3200 for graphics which is good enough for an entry level gaming experience.

The HP tx2500z has the following specs:

• Processor: AMD Turion X2 Ultra dual-core Mobile ZM-86 2.40GHz
• Screen: 12.1″ diagonal WXGA HP BrightView widescreen (1280 x 800)
• Memory: 3.00GB DDR2 RAM
• OS: Windows Vista Business 32-bit
• Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 3200
• Ports: Three USB 2.0 ports, an ExpressCard/34 slot, S-Video, VGA, Consumer IR, 5-in-1 digital media card reader, Microphone, 2-headphone ports (1-SPDIF), Modem port, Ethernet port
• Wireless: 802.11 a/b/g/n , BlueTooth
• HP Imprint Finish (Echo)
• Battery: 6-cell

Hi, Shiva. How are you? The HPtx2500z is appealing but there have been many reviews about the downsides of the device namely the monitor screen & the integrated graphics card function.

Nonetheless, HP do have overall come up with pretty good laptop offerings & pricing. You be healthy.
