HP TouchSmart tx2-1275dx review: HP TouchSmart tx2-1275dx

The TouchSmart tx2-1275dx uses a six-cell battery and lasted only 2 hours 21 minutes on CNET Labs' video playback battery drain test. It didn't last much longer under typical Windows use where we weren't constantly playing a video; the battery ran out around the 2.5-hour mark. For a tablet that's obviously intended to spend a lot of time on the go, we expected better.

Included are HP's priority service and support for tx2 customers featuring an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty, toll-free 24-7 phone support, and the promise of 1-hour responses to e-mail. The comprehensive support Web site includes real-time chat with a technical support representative, FAQs, and driver downloads.
