She’s not fat, she’s big-boned. However you put it, the tx2 does not cut a slim figure. Our model says ‘TT3 prototype’ on the back, but it walks like a tx2, talks like a tx2 and looks like it had five Mini-Notes for breakfast. It would all be worth it if the multi-touch interface meant a truly usable tablet for once, but HP isn’t quite there yet, and the tx’s gesture awareness and scrolling ability are too juddery to even get you halfway to forgiving the rest of the laptop for piling on the pounds. If you’re a peripheral-lover, on the other hand, this is your girl: expansion ports, USB, optical drive, Ethernet, slide-out remote control (no, really), Altec Lansing speakers, the list goes on. But, yeah, she’s fat.
