HP Pavilion tx2000 Consumer Tablet Announced (video, specs)

HP Pavilion tx2000HP’s announced the Pavilion tx2000, a significant upgrade to its consumer line of tablet PCs. The tx2000 features an active digitizer for improved hand-writing recognition compared to last year’s tx1000 series. Check out the following video of the new tx2000.

The Pavilion tx2000 is a full-featured convertible notebook, with a 12.1-inch display that rotates and folds flat. The display is touch sensitive, which is useful for controlling media applications while in tablet mode. A battery-less digitizer is included for writing and drawing on the screen. When the digitizer is placed near the display to write, the touch-screen functionaity is automatically disabled.

Like the tx1000 series, the tx2000 series is powered by AMD processors. Users will be abe to chose from several AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core processors. Graphics are provided by an integrated NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 graphics card that shares up to 128MB of RAM.

While the tx2000 is compact, it is not as slim as many other tablets on the market. The tx2000 will be available nicely equipped for about $1,500. HP’s Kevin Wentzel said they wouldn’t have been able to hit that price point without AMD.

HP will offer a 120GB hard drive in base models, but users will be able to opt for 160GB, 250GB and 320GB upgrades.The tx2000 weighs in at about 4.5 pounds, including an internal DVD burner.
