HP TouchSmart tm2 review

When HP launched the TouchSmart tx2, it was the first convertible laptop for consumers featuring multitouch technology. Now, with its successor, the HP TouchSmart tm2, HP aims to take the touch experience up another notch. The tm2 continues to have a multitouch capacitive display, but now comes with a digitized pen stylus for use when the tm2 is in tablet mode, as well as a consumer ultra-low voltage (CULV) processor.

Technical Specificatiom:
  • The tm2 has an aluminum finish covering
  • The laptop has a HD LED convertible screen that measures 12.1 inches and has a 1,280 by 1,240 resolution.
  • It adds a FireWire port, as well as an HDMI port.
  • It has 3 USB ports.
  • The touchpad is  oversized, and nitrated the mouse buttons
  • The tm2 comes with new touch applications: BumpTop, a touch-enhanced 3D interface for organizing or sharing photos and documents over social media networks, as well as over e-mail; DigiFish Dolphin, an interactive 3D screensaver; and Corel Pian it! Touch
  • The tm2 will come standard with the Intel Core 2 Duo SU 9600 processor
  • 4GB of DDR3 memory.
  • There are options available to upgrade to an Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPU and/or up to 8GB DDR3 memory.
  • It also comes with a 500GB, 7,200rpm hard drive.
  • The screen rotates to lie flat on top of the keyboard; you can use the bundled digital pen to "write" on the screen.
  • With the CULV processor, HP is obviously focused on extending battery life. In fact, it claims that the tm2 can last over 9.5 hours with its standard 6-cell battery.
  • Base price for the tm2 is $949,
