LaptopMag Goes Hands On With CTL 2go Convertible Netbook Tablet PC

2golead A $500 convertible netbook tablet pc? You bet! And if LaptopMag’s early hands-on experience holds true, then CTL’s 2go Netbook (Intel Classmate) just might be the thing to break all this ““Tablet PC is niche talk”. I wonder if we can get LaptopMag to install Windows 7 on it? Check out their full review and video here. LaptopMag’s conclusion:

Until we get a look at ASUS’ touchscreen Eee PCs we can firmly say the 2go tablet looks to be the most promising netbook with tablet capabilities on the market. Though the keyboard is an area of concern, its durable features, accelerometer and responsive touchscreen are all compelling for a $500 price. However, to make our final assessment, we will need to get a production unit.

    Looks outstanding, aside from the cramped keyboard… too bad they couldn’t go to a different layout.

    8.9″ touchscreen, $500 price point, can someone give me a good reason why it’s running Windows XP Home and not Windows XP Tablet PC Edition with Origami UI? It’s been more than two years since Microsoft launched the Origami campaign and finally there’s a device with the requisite hardware that meets the promised price point, but no Origami interface. C’mon Microsoft, the full promise of the UMPC is finally within reach. Please open the Origami license to it.

    Worse, Vista HR is many times better than XP – while our verticle software products (medical EMRs and E-prescribers) use many “tweaks” we have learned over the years to improve HR XP is still a weakness for any real traction – Vista is Vista.

    This size etc is perfect for a lot of biz apps but the first thing I will do is install Vista.

    Or, anyone know how I can rip the HR engine out of Vista and make it run on XP?
