  • Overall, I think that the HP Pavilion TX1000 tablet PC is sufficient to use for normal office work if it is running on a higher 2GB RAM or being downgraded to the less memory guzzler of Window XP

      A close friend of mine - Josephine purchased a HP Pavilion TX1000 tablet PC about at the end of 2007 for approximately RM4500 (US$1250). Instead of the usual Intel Processor, the HP Pavilion TX1000 runs on the AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology at 1.8 GHz, with a 1GB DDR2 SDRAM and 120GB of hard drive.

      I tried out the tablet PC for about half a day at her workplace on a weekend when she needed to get some work done (using


      the office deskstop). The HP Pavilion TX1000 is categoried as a entertainment PC, so it was loaded with features and gadgets such as WIFI, bluetooth, fingerprint reader for enhanced security, 5 in 1 card reader slot, touch screen, DVD reader/writer, media control buttons as well as a credit card size remote control and a pen-sized stylus that slide out from the base.

      Due to the fact that the tablet PC has only 1GB of RAM, and runs on Windows Vista Home Edition, it is quite slow on startups as well as loading of applications such as Microsoft Words and Microsoft Excel. Surfing the internet via the Internet Explorer was quite slow too. I suggested straight away to Josephine that she should either upgrade the RAM to 2GB, or get the HP technician to downgrade the operating system to Windows XP so that the tablet PC could perform better. I watch an entire DVD movie using the tablet PC after that, and despite the slower loadings ...

      for applications, there were no lagging while the movie was being played, and the display on the 12.1 inch touch screen LCD was very crisp.

      Overall, I think that the HP Pavilion TX1000 tablet PC is sufficient to use for normal office work if it is running on a higher 2GB RAM or being downgraded to the less memory guzzler of Window XP. The plus point of the tablet PC is that it features a touch screen, and we could make inputs

      via the provided pen-stylus, or any other stylus if we loose the original one, or even by our fingers. It is also very flexible where the screen can be folded down over the keyboard during presentations or writing notes on the touch screen. However, it would not be my choice as for the price that I were to pay for the tablet PC, I would have opted for a normal laptop with more performance, bigger LCD screen, bigger RAM and hard drive capacity.
