HP still holds the number one spot this Holiday season with the tx2500, which comes as no surprise. As I mentioned last month, we would have some new comers this month and I was right. Besides the Lenovo ThinkPad X200 and HP’s updated 2730p, which were both new last month, we have the HP TouchSmart tx2z and the HP tx2600. Fujitsu has a few more tablets to release too, so expect more updates to come from them, maybe a new Stylistic. So stay tuned for the newest releases because we will have all the latest news for this Holiday season and great gift ideas.
