Advantages Fast and strongly made.
Disadvantages Has some features that are a 'little over the top'.
I was originally going to buy the HX2490 but that model was being changed and wasn't available, also the HX2790 has a faster processor (I understand). I particularly wanted a machine with WiFi and Bluetooth, both these features are very well implemented on this model.Even though I have only had the machine for a week or two I have used Wifi a lot and it is very sensitive receiving hot spots that I couldn't get with my laptop.
The screen is very clear and bright although not so clear in very bright sunshine (normal use is fine).Early on I accidentally dropped the device and it suffered no ill effects (thank goodness).
Personally I have no use for the finger print recognition and I could see this possibly causing problems if it locked the machine and malfunctioned. However in sone circumstances it would no doubt give added security.Thepaper manual seems a little short on detail but the manual on CD is fine.
Overall I find the HX2790 a great, easy to use, easy to sync. with the PC and well built machine.Since writing the original review I have been asked about the battery life. Well I have rarely run it flat and it has certainly run for more than 5 hours with plenty of capacity left. I have found that it is easy to accidentally switch the device on if you put it in your pocket.
It's a light, fast machine and I have been extremely happy with it in the couple of months that I have had it.
