Archos 9 PCTablet

LAPTOP Magazine
12 March 2010
  • Summary: The Archos 9 isn’t really a tablet. It’s just a cheaper version of an ultra-mobile PC, a category that died long ago. If you like the idea of owning a tablet that supports Flash and takes advantage of Windows 7’s touch capabilities, wait for the HP Slate. We know you—and Archos—can do better than this.
  • Pros: Thin sturdy design, USB port and webcam, Built-in kickstand, Decent speakers,
  • Cons: Poor touchscreen, Frustrating typing experience, Short battery life, Sluggish performance, Runs hot, No touch-friendly software,

Tablet PC From Archos Is No Competition for iPad

Wired
11 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The iPad is not yet out, but the aspiring iPad killers are lurking everywhere. One of the first out of the gate is the Archos 9 PC Tablet. Archos has long ruled the portable media-player space, and in recent years it has tiptoed into the mini-tablet arena, most recently with a device that runs Android OS, the Archos 5 . With the Archos 9, it jumps up to Windows 7 (Starter Edition), a full-on PC in a slate form factor, all for an iPad-competitive price of $550.
  • Pros: Very portable (1.8 pounds). Eye-catching. Sturdy. Runs just about any Windows app.
  • Cons: Downright awful touchscreen. Needs more RAM; performance is dismal. Just 3 hours battery life even with Wi-Fi turned off.
