For what it is worth, I did a first-impression write-up on the Gateway
M-series tablet for IT-News at Back-to-School time:
I have been using the Gateway for work and for two MBA classes I have
been taking this semester. On the whole, I am very happy with it. As
Rob observes, the battery life is great, it is fairly light.
The one complaint I have (which also is true of the Motion Tablet), is
that the screen resolution is TOO LOW. Both the Gateway and the Motion
are XGA displays (1024x768). Windows XP really demands an SXGA+
display... I end up feeling very "cramped" when working with the
system. I have noted that the Tablets manufactured by Acer and Toshiba
have higher-resolution screens:
Mind you, I have not heard anyone else griping about the screen
resolution... perhaps it is just me.
