I bought my TX2Z shortly before starting a college program. It lasted just under 2 years before the motherboard failed. About 6 months or so after purchase, the CPU cooling fan began to run much more frequently. After about a year, it ran constantly. I frequently used compressed air to blow out the vents (the cooling fins appeared clean) and even removed the DVD drive, in case it was helping to cause the heat build-up. Finally, the weekend before an exam and one week before finals, it failed and flashing lights on the keyboard signaled a motherboard failure. I had been using a cooling pan w/dual fans anytime I was on A/C power (80% of the time during the first year of ownership and almost 100% of the time after that), so I don't believe I caused the failure with poor ventilation.

When it worked properly, I really liked it. However, it seems that motherboard failures related to heat build-up are common in this line. Shame on you, HP!

In the beginning, I was so excited about this computer! I bought it in late 2009 straight from HP and was overly excited about the, seemingly, infinite things I could do with this computer. I was excited about the technology--even before the the Windows 7 upgrade, it was cool. From the start, I had minor problems--the computer would shut off on it's own in a very odd way. Battery wouldn't be dead or anything, but it was frequent. The computer's fan was always on and LOUD. I always took care to ensure that it wasn't in a position to run hot, but the fan just kept on running. I called in to HP, they sent me through the Bios screen to, as I understand it, keep the fan running so that computer wouldn't overheat. Didn't help much at all. Then, not even a year after having the computer, a pink line appeared in the middle of my screen. I called to ask HP about it, they said there was nothing they could do about it--it was a problem with the screen. OK, big deal to me(because I, like everyone else here paid a whole hell of a lot of money for this machine--much more than the $525 it's currently selling for), but I let it slide. The battery needed to be replaced so quickly--I didn't even have the cheapest battery--it only lasted a little over a year. It showed signs of decline before that (a computer I used for school purposes and kept on power saving settings MOST of the time). I bought a new battery (I won't even get into the trouble I had with HP's customer service regarding that--that's a whole other issue), then a few months later, I'm experiencing my computer shutting off and making this odd sound (kind of like how cartoons sound when they run/zoom away--think road runner) while I would be in the middle of something. That went on for months before I was completely locked out of my computer.Read more ›

It been two years now and today the black screen of death appeared, out of warnantee, HP no help unless you pay them. This problem has been since this product rolled out HP will not except the responsibility to fix or recall this product. Buyer beware do not buy this product used, refurblished, if you buy new buy the extended warnantee. If not you might get two good years out of it then trash it and since the money in a tablet.<...>

I bought three of these to use at the office, and two of them have already died the infamous "blinking lights and dead screen" death, after about two years of use. They do run extremely hot, and if you have one that still is running I recommend you turn all the power management settings to maximum power savings, even when plugged in, to try and extend its life. Another problem with this model is the very soft plastic on the screen. Mine have developed very deep opaque ruts, just with routine daily use with the provided pens. Another problem is the awkward battery placement. They don't show it on any of the promotional pictures, but the battery sticks out very far on the hinge side, making it a lot harder to carry.

On the plus side, the physical design aside from the battery is very good, with the machine working well in both notebook and tablet configurations. The battery life is good for how powerful the CPU and graphics are. The screen is large and bright. The price was good for a unit with these features. The pen and digitizer work very nicely.

I also had this computer since it was first released and paid $900 for it at Best Buy. Two years later, after I watched a DVD in it (which I rarely do) and left the computer on overnight, I had the GPU/motherboard failure. This computer should not have been sold at all, given the GPU heating problems. A class-action suit should be filed for this one, like it was for the first TX.

Picked this up recently for $30 at Goodwill. As others have noted, the fan seems to be running all the time and it runs hot. Have to be careful not to obstruct the fan in the slightest way or it will over heat and shut down. All the hardware works in linux. Decent buy at $30. I don't think I'd buy at the going rate of $60 on Amazon.

It's a bit heavy to use as a tablet. That combined with the overheating issue limits the usefulness as a tablet.

Even though the model is not the latest, it is still a laptop worth buying. I bought it in Japan, second hand, because of the keyboard (it has next to western, also Japanese letters on it).
Now running with Windows 7 and and after a firmware update it touchscreen accepts two touchpoints, which is fine by me.
The touchscreen is capacative and there is a stylus as well. I use it mainly to go through my language program and am able to use the laptop as a touchpad and only use my fingers or stylus on the screen.
There was a problem, the fan became very loud and I almost wanted to sell the laptop. But I thought it over and realized that it was on high capacity, so the processor was on high speed all the time. After putting the laptop into power saving mode, the noise was gone. The fan turns on occasionally and not at it's highest speed. The laptop is fast enough for my needs and the few games I run on it go smoothly.
Even though the screen is small, it is nice to watch movies on (especially since it doesn't have a shiny surface)..

All in all..I would recommend this laptop to anyone who thinks of buying it.
