HP ships TouchSmart tm2t tablet, upgrades dv6t and dv7t

By on
Shortly after its introduction at this year's CES, HP has begun shipping their latest consumer tablet PC, the TouchSmart tm2t. Starting at around $950, the new system features a choice of ultra-low-voltage Intel Core 2 Duo processors, either integrated Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics or a discrete 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550 card, and has a six-cell battery that's said to provide up to nine hours of operation.

Its 12.1-inch LED capacitive multi touch display offers a 1,280x800 resolution and promises "feather-light" response from either your fingers or the bundled digital pen. The base model ships with 3GB of DDR3 memory and a 160GB hard drive, both of which can be upgraded up to 8GB and 500GB respectively. Of course, Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system comes pre-installed, and HP has also thrown in a number of touch-friendly applications to make the experience more appealing.

Besides the new TouchSmart tm2t, the 15.6-inch Pavilion dv6t and 17.3-inch dv7t series laptops are both getting an Intel Core i5-520M 2.4GHz processor as standard, optional Nvidia GeForce GT 320M graphics, plus two free upgrades: 3GB memory (up from 2 GB) and a 320GB 7200rpm hard drive (up from 250GB).
