Vista Launch Kit Contains Information About New HP tx1000 Tablet PC

by Reads (8,258)

It seems that Microsoft is sending out 5,000 numbered Vista Launch Kits. The kits mostly contain Vista launch material like DVDs, a thick Vista product guide that tells you all about Vista, a 2GB SanDisk Cruzer Mini USB drive that reads "Enhanced for ReadyBoost" and something very interesting. A 48 page brochure entitled: Windows Vista Partner Stories.

The book contains this new offering from HP called the HP Pavilion tx1000 Notebook/Tablet PC. HP’s website does not reveal much at all and there is no indication of pricing. Hopefully, we will learn more at CES.


The HP Pavilion tx1000 features a twist display for films and presentations, a touch screen to capture handwritten notes with the stylus, optional HP Pavilion WebCam, fingerprint reader and Lightscribe.

Product features include:

  • 12.1 inch high-definition convertible display
  • Touch screen display with dockable pen (select models)
  • Fingerprint reader (select models)
  • 5-in-1 digital media reader
  • Altec Lansing stereo speakers
  • Dual headphone jacks, one S/PDIF-capable
  • HP mini remote control
  • Integrated wireless WAN (select models)
  • Removable optical disk drive with weight-saver that can drop weight by as much as .37 lbs
  • HP Pavilion WebCam (Optional)
  • Two omni-directional mics
