One of the things we expect to do really well on this site is to review hardware and software. However, when we come across a really good review done elsewhere, we certainly want to help pass the word!
Barry Doyle of TabletPCReviewSpot.com has done a great review of the Acer C200. He reviewed the Celeron version, including benchmarks. I applaud that as reviewers all too often want to go for the powerhouse in reviewing these machines (which is what OEM’s usually send us), and that leaves the budget minded consumer out of information as to whether this thing will really do the job. Here is an excerpt of the conclusions, but the full article with lots of good images, etc., is worth the read! Kudos to Barry! Go over and check out their other reviews as well.
“The Acer TravelMate C200 Tablet PC is not the lightest 12.1″ model of the bunch. As a matter of fact the design is a bit bulkier than what we would have expected. On the upside this Celeron M-based version of the C200 is an outstanding value. We would highly recommend this Tablet PC for students, consumers or business users who want to get a solid and dependable Tablet PC without breaking the bank.”
