Review: Acer TravelMate C200 (TabletPCCorner.net)

Acer TravelMate C200 C204 C203
TabletPCCorner.net has put together a comprehensive review (with lots of pictures) of the Acer TravelMate C200-series convertible laptop/Tablet PC. The C200-series is a Pentium M-powered ultraportable convertible with a 12.1-inch display, and a sliding-track mechanism that allows it to convert in one motion.

I do not speak French, however this is a rough translation, using Google, of their impression:

It’s tempting because it offers a compact but sturdy case, good power consumption, and a significant number of technical features, with a good price. The sliding-track mechanism is solid, although it will take a few months before really judging this. Acer conceived the C200 in the same spirit as Toshiba: It’s a portable with Tablet PC functionality added.

They will revisit this review over the next few weeks to discuss any day-to-day issues they encounter.

These are the pluses and minuses they mentioned (again, machine translation):

Pluses: Power Consumption, Screen, Screen Angle, Brightness/Clarity, Biometric Reader, Multiple Batteries, Good Software, 3 USB Ports + Firewire + Bluetooth 2.0

Minuses: Trackpoint useability, Serrated Roller (?), no palm/hand rest, no screen protection (for stylus), XGA Only.
