This Notebook Features a full suite of multimedia,The underlying hardware here is quite good.The Nvidia GeForce Go 6150 graphics handles Vista's glassy Aero interface and its 3D desktop objects well, even though this GPU uses shared memory. All of this power does require some cooling.The upside of the touchscreen is that you can use your finger to tap oversized buttons, such as the embedded HP QuickPlay interface for multimedia playback.A webcam sits at the top of the lid for video chatting. Audio playback through the Altec Lansing speakers was among the best we have heard from a laptop this size, and visual rendering of DVDs and other video clips was outstanding.

Satisfactory

published 04/02/2009

Nice feel and options but poor in use. Battery life with reduced brightness under 2 hours (very poor), system often seizes up, and there is no fax function in MS Vista Home Premium so I need my old XP computer around just to do this. Touchscreen is great but it reduces sharpness of the screen. Ability to use as flat panel (invert screen/pc to analogue tv/pc to lcd tv) very very good but the processor and Vista does not run well on this computer. Wifi connection takes ages versus my children's Vaio Vista pc. Value for money decent but speed/durability/portability poor. Don't buy it.

Not for me

November 2008 My TX1220us is 13 months old and has probably had 40 hours total use in the last year. Currently it is being fitted with a new motherboard which will cost me $400 - this new motherboard will still contain the original design flaw & will probably fail in a few months! HP Total Care do not want to know! Do not take my word for this type in ´TX1000 serious problem´ into the web & see for yourself what the 1000´s of very angry TX1000 series owners have to say about that expensive ´paper weight´ you are contemplating buying!

I've owned one for 1.6 years. The CPU overheats and stops working after about a year. The problem is documented here: http://forums13.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadI d=1268501 This product is defective.
