HP‘s TouchSmart tx2z is the world’s first multitouch consumer convertible tablet according to HP. I’m not sure about that but it is definitely one of the most affordable and now it’s an unbeatable buy. The tx2z sports a 12.1″ multitouch TFT LCD with a 1280 x 800 pixel format. Of course the LCD has a LED backlight. Now the crazy thing is that there is a $450 stacked coupon that will bring down the price of the tx2z to just $649.99!

Here’s the deal:

  1. Go to HP’s site. Click on “Customize & Buy” for the “Base configuration”.
  2. Then get your free upgrades:
    • 2GB RAM –> 4GB RAM
    • 160GB HDD –> 320GB

You might want to upgrade to WiFi N but that’ll cost you $25 extra. The upgrade from 6-cell to 8-cell will cost an additional $39. I would do that because I just don’t like the added bulk and you’ll probably be near a power outlet anyway.

After extensive configuring (just pressing the next button over and over again) and adding to cart, click on the red “Continue Checkout” button. Now if you are registered with HP go ahead and sign in. If you are not registered with HP do that. After registering click on another red “Continue Checkout”. Finally, type in coupon code NB4357 and click on the red ‘Add’ button. Make sure it is all caps. You should see the price drop by $250 to just $649.99.
