Accurate stylus support and good built-in stylus storage location

(2008 standards) One of few affordable convertible tablets, most are business tablets such as the Thinkpad X61t

Cons

Screen quality is poor, picture is grainy and viewing angles are subpar

1 agrees

At 4.59lbs, the tx2500z is heavy for a 12.1" notebook with the majority of convertible tablets well under 4lbs

1 agrees

Poor battery life for a 12.1" ultraportable notebook, due to the Turion X2 processor

1 agrees

Unless buyers are really limited on budget and must acquire a convertible tablet, they should look towards more expensive options from HP's business line, Thinkpads, and Fujitsu's tablet line

1 agrees

Runs exceptionally hot, also due to the Turion X2 processor which is essentially a toned down version of AMD's desktop processor
