HP has announced the TouchSmart tm2 convertible tablet which sports a 12.1-inch multi-touch capacitive display. The device is powered by a Intel Core 2 Duo ULV processor and offers up to 9 hours of battery life.
Unusually for a notebook you don’t even get an optical drive thrown into the package. However what you do get is a sleek aluminum chassis and a large touchpad with integrated mouse buttons. Other features include a Firewire port as well as HDMI and three USB ports.
You can also opt for discrete ATI graphics if Intel’s integrated offerings don’t do much for you. Check out some hands-on videos from Laptop Mag and Engadget after the break. The laptop should be out on January 17th with a starting price of $949.
