Welcome to the monthly listing of the “Top 10 Tablet PCs”. This report is compiled based on the number of views each product page receives, so every time someone clicks on a product they’re giving it a vote in that months rankings.
These rankings don’t necessarily indicate which models are the best selling, just which ones TabletPCReview readers are most interested in learning about.
The ever so popular tx1000 still holds strong at number one, no matter how many users dislike it. The Holiday season brought some new contenders to our list including the Toshiba M700, but the old favorites still remain strong. Even though there wasn’t much change this month, I predict we will see some shiny new faces this new year. With CES right around the corner and new releases expected from some of our favorite manufactures like HP and Toshiba, I promise next month’s list will be different. Stay tuned for our complete CES coverage and the new tablet releases.
|1. HP Pavilion tx1000 (Still #1) – The HP Pavilion tx1000 is a Tablet PC notebook convertible. HP refers to it as an entertainment notebook that includes media control buttons, dual headphone jacks, a touch screen that works with any stylus or your fingertip and a new high-gloss finished 12.1″ screen. It’s powered by an AMD Turion X2 processor, which provides enough power for watching movies or listening to music. HP Pavilion tx1000 Reviews / HP Pavilion tx1000 Opinions|
