The Pavilion has another innovation up its sleeve: the 12.1-inch screen can swivel through 360 degrees, enabling you to turn it around, close the lid and use the laptop as a normal tablet PC. It’s also easy to find the ideal viewing angle for a film. This feature is valuable, since the screen isn’t the best quality – images can be slightly difficult to make out at certain angles, and text wasn’t really crisp enough in general.
The laptop’s specifications are fairly solid. AMD’s Turion dual-core processor is powerful enough to run applications smoothly, 120GB should be plenty of storage space, and the 5-in-1 media slot and dual headphone jacks are useful.The HP Pavilion TX1000’s interface makes everyday tasks easy and enjoyable, but the most innovative features don’t work as well as they might. The versatile screen, for example, suffers from imperfect image quality, while the touchscreen technology is less effective than it could be.
