The HP TouchSmart tm2t is a tablet. Not just any tablet, but a darn nice evolution over the previous generation TX2. Even the base configuration comes with a Core i3 processor, 6GB of ram and 500GB HDD. But today we’re looking at a slightly more muscly configuration, which after $350 in rebates ($150 off plus a $200 web-only stackable coupon) comes out to $884. For this price you get:
Core i5-430UM 1.2GHz processor, 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5450 switchable graphics card, an external Blu-ray DVD+/-RW combo drive and 6GB DDR3 ram.
One online reviewer had this to say about the tm2:
The build quality is excellent, it’s got an aluminum casing, high-quality looks and one of the nicest touch-active digitizer displays we’ve seen as long as you don’t mind the gloss. The HP runs cool and quiet and battery life with the standard battery is very, very good.
