PC Magazine has published an in-depth review of the Gateway C-120X. The Gateway C-120X is a “convertible” laptop – having both a physical keyboard, with a display that can rotate and lay down across the keyboard, turning it into a Tablet PC. The C-120X is considered the “consumer” version of Gateway’s “Thin and Light Convertible” series based on the Gateway E155C Tablet PC. The C-120X has a larger harddrive and uses Microsoft Windows Vista, when compared to the E-155C (Windows XP Professional). It has an Intel Core 2 Duo Ultra Low Voltage U7500 (1.06GHz) for it’s CPU, can hold to 4GB of memory, utilizes a 12.1-inch touchscreen widescreen display, and weighs between four and a half and five pounds depending on options (internal optical drive, etc.).
PC Magazine gave it a “good” rating, three out of five, saying:
With a magnesium-alloy design, it feels sturdier than the Fujitsu LifeBook T4210 and the HP Pavilion tx1000, but I think the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet, the current Editors’ Choice, still has the upper hand.
This is a sturdy 12-inch convertible tablet with a built-in optical drive, but its performance needs to be a lot better.
