Hi, I'm Eddie, I came accross your post when I search for HP Pavillion TX2032Au, I was planning to buy the same one, but only 1 year warranty, already RM2999... maybe need to wait for another PC fair?? so far how is the speed? stability? the flip flap screen is it durable? and how sensitive is the touch screen function? especially the pen? will it slow?
can tell me more about this notebook after using it? pls email me at

That is a really cool product but the fingerprint reader isn’t that accurate. I swiped a lot of times into my friend’s fingerprint reader and just like that, I was already able to access it and FYI, my biometrics weren’t not enrolled. Regardless, it is a very cool laptop. I am able to play video games without too much lag, and its built-in LAN chip isn’t that bad either. I’m even thinking of getting one soon.

For me the coolest thing about this laptop is its rotating screen. You can either use it as it is or face it away from the keyboard. Likewise, you can have it flat on top of the keyboard and use it as if it’s a tablet. ;)
