    Dear all,

    I was looking for a Tablet PC and I have been offered one of the last models of Acer, the ACER TMC 204 TMI ( M-760 ). I was considering bying it but I have not seen any review. Could you tell me which is your opinion about its characteristics compared to other similar ones?.

    Thanks a lot!.
    José.

    The reason that i like the acer travelmate c200
    1. it has an integrated optical drive (which is not something you see readily in 12'' models)
    2. The sliding mechanism, looks sturdier to me than the swivel mechanism
    It is not as light as i'd like it to be, but for the specifications of it, I think its a fair compromise.

    Having looked at the specs for the C314XMi, the main difference is the convertible mechanism & the bigger screen, I guess it comes down to whats more important to you. Off course with the bigger screen the C314XMi is going to be a little heavier...almost a 1lb heavier. The TMC204TMi also comes with 2 batteries & has more video memory installed. It can take from the system memory supplementing up to 256MB, not as good as it would have been if it had 256 MB of its own memory, but what can you do??

    yes, but with the screen always exposed that poses a larger risk of damage which is a serious downside if you are on the go (I need something I can put in a backpack), and with acers iffy build quality as of late and questionable customer support... thats not a good thing. I wish I had more faith in this company as this would be the computer at the top of my list! I'd probably have already ordered it.

    Feel free to comment...

    Daniel,
    it seems that acer will be selling the c200 with a protective flip over cover, based on the info i'm seeing on acers australian & new zealand website.

    http://www.acer.com.au/acer/akc/marcom.nsf/Page/RWPE015316C0D818641CA2570B400814BE3?open&current=&

    "Stamina, security and survival
    Stamina, security and survival in today’s fast-paced life have also been incorporated into the TravelMate C200’s ultra-portable design. Its impressive battery life of up to 6.9 hours, a cutting-edge biometric fingerprint security solution for data and hardware security, and Disk Anti Shock Protection (DASP) will keep any mobile professional on the road and in business with confidence and peace of mind. The sliding screen also has an easy to use flip cover for extra protection between meetings. "

    Really it's the same risk as you would have with any slate model Tablet. Best thing to do is invest in a suitable form of protection like this cover - sooner rather than later.
