I have a ford also. great car. anyway I am just making a point that I think it is a very good brand from the recomendations that I was given. I was going to buy one if I had the money. But my doctor and my sister who is a doctor say they are great. And I have used one. It is very light and pretty fast for me. I recall someone here saying, one of the admins I think, that a motion 1.0 ghtz processor is like a regular 1.6 on a computer. And I have look at the reviews of those slates. It is just the same thing with the gateway and m4. I read the reviews and the gateway looked to be just the same if not better (in price) as the M4. Now after going down to Bestbuy I found the gateway to be a peice of garbage. It was bulky, heavy, hard to hold, hard to turn, mis-alignment was horrible (my r15 came out of the box and I never had to align it), and it seemed to be made of a very poor material. I thanked God that I did not get it but got an r15. anyway sometimes things may look the same but once you get them one is always better than the other. like pirated merchandise in China.
