The new Acer C200 convertible Tablet PC with the innovative sliding hinge is now available on TigerDirect. This is the same sliding hinge Tablet that has been shown in the past by Bill Gates. I have played with one very briefly and it is very cool. The C200 is only $1699.99 on TigerDirect which is a very nice price.

  1. I’m no expert, but this machine looks loaded – 2.0GHz, 1GB ram, 100GB, dual layer, etc.
    Price is sweet as well.

    But, (groan), the *weight*!!!
    WHY, oh _why_ 5.7 pounds????????

    I’m so tempted to go to the Japanese importers for a Panasonic R4 at 2.7 lbs, or Tiger Direct for an IBM Thinkpad X40 ($1300)2.7-3.2 lbs., even though I badly want tablet functionality, just because I want a unit I can comfortably carry everywhere. My Fuji 5020 at 4.5 lbs (with case) made me crave, *crave*, lite lite lite.

    Can you explain, jk, why tpcs weigh so much more than their laptop counterparts?

  2. This looks to be a pre-order. Does anyone have experience with TigerDirect? Their price is about $200 less than other Internet vendors.

  3. I’ve purchased from them- fast delivery, no probs. Never needed warranty service, tho, so can’t speak to that.
    They told me their prices are low because they buy in bulk lots from the manufacture, and don’t customize orders.
    This system looks decked out, though, nothing weak sauce about it.

  4. Blake,
    in your playing with the acer travelmate c200, did you get to see if the screen can close as in a traditional laptop? how is the screen protected when the machine is not in use? can the screen sit at a 90 degree angle?

  6. A different version (celeron :(, non-nvidia :(…) version of the C200 is still available on the canadian version of tigerdirect… http://www.tigerdirect.ca... the price, in CDN $ is still pretty amazing even though the specs are all lower
