Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good points of this laptop are clearly apparent from viewing it - its unique selling point has to be the swivel-screen to switch between laptop and tablet! What with tablets predominantly being reported upon in various tech-magizines given the inevitable and much-lauded release oft he iPad, bear in mind that the HP TX2 is something that can provide the best of both worlds (and provide multi-tasking)!

With touchscreen support supported by Windows 7, the HPTX2 and the newest Microsoft OS work in a symbiotic harmony.

The hadwriting recorgnition and on-screen keyboard whilst in tablet-mode have been sufficient.Focusing specifically on each aspect, the handwriting reconigtion has been a surprise. I expected something that would return mixed results - however i have had a number of friends use this and it has returned the correct word 90% of the time (either using joined-up handwriting style or by individually writing each letter). In that regard, this has so far been a joy. However, as a user, you would not predominantly rely on the handwriting style (particularly with the availability of the keyboard) given that it is significantly slower than simply typing on a keyboard. The same issue applies witht he on-screen keyboard.

With Adobe Flash now supporting touchscreen, the potential for this laptop for developers has now increased significantly. Admittedly, a purchase of a HP touchscreen monitor would suffice.

Connection methods are positive - the mix of bluetooth and WiFi allow for connection to the net almost anywhere (especially when the Bluetooth connection is utilised to sponge off a 3G connection to the net on a mobile), and is a few simple clicks away. Three (3) USB ports are easiily accesible. Additional monitor can be attached.

Stylus attachment is of a relatively high quality - the housign within the case of the laptop has a click-latch which can hold the pen when in transit. This is of good build quality, though I suspect over time this may become loose (however i haven't come across any reviews that allude as such).

The remote control has a handy click-in -click-out latch in a similar vein to the stylusl this too is of a good quality, and allows for quick acess to media files. It'll also allow for adjusting volume/skipping media, which is plenty desireable (though i practice is not often used). Its got the bling factor, but you won't ever need it.

Before purchase, I also suspected that the swivel-mechanism may be rather poor and become weak over time. After purchasing, and being wary of this, I can state that the mechanism feels solidly-built (albeit with a little inevitable flexibility). Provided that the screen is never swivelled with force in the wrong direction, I suspect that this may last for a sustained and sufficient period of time.

I haven't yet had a chance to fiddle with the Lightscrfibe disc burner, and this should not be considered within the context of this review.
Bad points:
Only two bad points!

No HDMI output.

Battery life - this won't be enough to last you more than 4 - 4.5 hours of constant use (applications + net) with WiFi and Bluetooth connections activated (albeit with Bluetooth not in use). However, the laptop came budled with two batteries (4- and 8-cell lithium ion, i think) these can easily be switched once one dies to buy you an additional 2 - 2.5 hours on top of that.
