HP just announced a whole new line of products and amongst them, the HP tx2000 Tablet PC, an upgrade to the HP tx1000.  TabletPCReview received a pre-production unit and they published a first-look review yesterday.  According to the review, the initial sepcs are as follow –

  • AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual Core processor TL-66 2.3GHz
  • Up to 4GB DDR2 RAM (review unit had 2GB)
  • Nvidia GeForce Go 6150 graphics
  • Hard drive options of 120GB, 160GB or 250GB
  • 12.1″ WXGA touchscreen display with built in digitizer (1280×800 resolution)
  • LightScribe Super Multi or Super Multi 8X DVD+/-R/RW
  • Windows Vista Home, Business or Ultimate OS
  • Integrated 10/100/1000 Ethernet
  • 802.11a/b/g/n with Bluetooth
  • ExpressCard Slot
  • 3 x USB ports
  • 2 x headphone out and one microphone-in
  • VGA-15 pin
  • TV-Out S-video
  • RJ-11 and RJ-45
  • Notebook Expansion port 3
  • 2 x Consumer IR
  • Battery: 4-cell or 6-cell Lithium-Ion
  • Weight: 4.3 pounds with weightsaver and 4-cell battery
  • Dimensions: 8.82″(L) x 12.05″(W) x 1.23″(H)

The PCMark05 score of 3,738 sure is impressive when compared to other  Tablets  (see test results in the review).

One thing that is not mentioned in the first-look review is the vectoring problem with its predecessor, the HP tx1000 Tablet PC, which uses the passive digitizer.  However, if you read on in the comment section to the review, someone extracted the HP product catalog and confirmed that HP had incorporated the active digitizer from WACOM to their new line, so much for the vectoring problem (too bad the HP does not have the DuoSense technology).
