I just received my C-140x and thought I'd share pictures with everyone... Enjoy! This is the box that it ships in... Inside the shipping box is another box. . . As you can see it's a lot prettier... Opening the pretty box you will find the manuals neatly wrapped... Underneath the manuals is the c-140x suspended in the center of the box by foam padding. A close-up of "sleeping-beauty"... Underneath the c-140x is yet another smaller box... Indside the smaller box we find software discs and a few other goodies... How thoughtful of Gateway to include a cleaning cloth for the screen! A 3/4 view of the clunky 5 cell Battery... A top view of the battery... Here you see a phone cord for the modem, a power cord, and the A/C Adapter... The c-140x unwrapped... 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. . . On the RIGHT SIDE you find the optical DVD drive and the CPU vent... Sleeping beauty has a blanket! Rise and shine! 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! A dose-up of the keyboard -- large Backspace, Enter, and Shift keys! This notebook looks sturdy and feels sturdy -- no loose ends... A close-up of the touchpad -- it works well... no surprises here... Microphone and other screen buttons... the joystick button is a nice addition. The Power Button... Rear 3/4 view showing the battery extending out slightly... the same view with the screen flipped open... The underside of the c-140x reveals the panels covering the CPU, RAM slots, and Hard Drive. 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. 2x1gb of DDR2 PC5300 RAM by G.Skill for $61 shipped! The packaged software including OS-- you will appreciate the small amount of bloatware on the system-uninstall those too! Replacement nibs for the Wacom pen. that circular thingy-ma-jig is a tool to remove the nibs. 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!
