One day all laptops could be like this,
This review is from: HP TouchSmart tm2-1010ea Laptop PC (12.1-inch Touchscreen, Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel Pentium SU4100 Processor, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB HDD, ATI Radeon HD 4550 Graphics, External LightScribe DVD Drive, up to 6 Hours Battery) (Electronics)I'm writing this review using a TM2 via the windows 7 handwriting regognition. Other reviews have detailed many of the good features so I'll try not to repeat them. This is a good sized portable device at around 12"-(slightly larger than a sheet of A4 paper). The capacitive touch screens very responsive and the pen digitiser works very well. The screen has a power saving setting out of the box that can make you think that the touchscreen doesn't always respond. This can be turned oft via the device manager, giving you a fast-responsive screen without any noticeable affect on battery life. Speaking of which, I've had around 7 hours usage on one charge.
The fingerprint reader makes password management very easy. This works with Windows logon as well as websites in IE and Firefox. The speakers are O.k.- Loud, clear, but lacking base. Screen brightness is also decent but the glossy screen can hinder outdoor use. Weight wise, this is heavy for it's size although the slightly offset weight distribution helps. You would feel the weight if you intend to hold it on your arm all day. It is also worth noting the lack of noise and the dual graphics feature that allows you to use a more powerful graphics card for HD Video and Intel graphics when you want to save power.
The device has 2 point multi-touch. Windows 7 includes a number of gestures that will work with a great many programs. HP have also included a number of touch software to demo the system. This includes the Windows 7 touch pack.
Overall, I'm very impressed with the device. It has changed the way that I use computers.
