I have purchased the HP Tx2z-1300 (nov 09).
So far, is a super machine. more affordable than the 2730p,
and has internal CD/DVD.
I am still learning a few things about
which pieces of bloatware can be kicked or disabled.
The capacitive touch is working well under Win7 pro.
wish i'd ordered the 'erasing' model of pen but,
i've done that now.
This replaced an Acer tm-c301 tablet purchased in '03.
also a great machine.
Maxed out the ram and processor for work as network tech.
planning to install vm and win2008 on machine as well.
Did not buy for games but, google earth and MS Surface Globe
are easier with the multi-touch than with mouse.
my 2 cents.
