    I just received my C-140x and thought I'd share pictures with everyone...

    Enjoy!

    [​IMG]
    This is the box that it ships in...


    [​IMG]
    Inside the shipping box is another box. . .


    [​IMG]
    As you can see it's a lot prettier...


    [​IMG]
    Opening the pretty box you will find the manuals neatly wrapped...


    [​IMG]
    Underneath the manuals is the c-140x suspended in the center of the box by foam padding.


    [​IMG]
    A close-up of "sleeping-beauty"...


    [​IMG]
    Underneath the c-140x is yet another smaller box...


    [​IMG]
    Indside the smaller box we find software discs and a few other goodies...


    [​IMG]
    How thoughtful of Gateway to include a cleaning cloth for the screen!


    [​IMG]
    A 3/4 view of the clunky 5 cell Battery...


    [​IMG]
    A top view of the battery...


    [​IMG]
    Here you see a phone cord for the modem, a power cord, and the A/C Adapter...


    [​IMG]
    The c-140x unwrapped...


    [​IMG]
    This is the LEFT SIDE of the notebook--here you find most of the jacks to plug in all your gadgets and also the A/C Adapter. . .


    [​IMG]
    On the RIGHT SIDE you find the optical DVD drive and the CPU vent...


    [​IMG]
    Sleeping beauty has a blanket!


    [​IMG]
    Rise and shine!


    [​IMG]
    A dose-up of the pretty screen -- Although There's a piece of glass covering the LCD, there is no apparent haziness from the Wacom layer... the picture quality is the same as other non-convertibles!


    [​IMG]
    A dose-up of the keyboard -- large Backspace, Enter, and Shift keys!


    [​IMG]
    This notebook looks sturdy and feels sturdy -- no loose ends...


    [​IMG]
    A close-up of the touchpad -- it works well... no surprises here...


    [​IMG]
    Microphone and other screen buttons... the joystick button is a nice addition.


    [​IMG]
    The Power Button...


    [​IMG]
    Rear 3/4 view showing the battery extending out slightly...


    [​IMG]
    the same view with the screen flipped open...


    [​IMG]
    The underside of the c-140x reveals the panels covering the CPU, RAM slots, and Hard Drive.


    [​IMG]
    The panel covering the CPU and RAM was a bit tricky to remove -- rather than break it off I just lifted it slightly enough to replace the 2x512mb sticks with 2x1gb sticks... a 5 minute job.


    [​IMG]
    2x1gb of DDR2 PC5300 RAM by G.Skill for $61 shipped!


    [​IMG]
    The packaged software including OS-- you will appreciate the small amount of bloatware on the system-uninstall those too!


    [​IMG]
    Replacement nibs for the Wacom pen. that circular thingy-ma-jig is a tool to remove the nibs.


    [​IMG]
    Gateway's version of one Wacom pen with single action button.


    I hope you found these pictures to be useful in your research... So far I am loving this thing... The Wacom drivers are a bit funky but once they're installed correctly, things work just fine... the screen is absolutely beautiful! BTW, this post was inked entirely on the c-140x!

    Nice photos, be curious to see the 140 next to the 120 for a size comparison ? What is the length and width(not thichness) of the 140 ? Is it 11" x 15" ??? I am talking about the entire unit, not just the screen size.

    Is the C140 supposed to come with the replacement nibs, or were those ordered as an accessory?

    Thanks! I just put a tape measure to the notebook and the unit is approximately 11" x 13 5/8".

    LOL, if you cut the "d" in half you get 'c l'

    =P

    the software is fairly good at recognizing terrible handwriting... I was quite impressed with its translation ability.
