Summary: With only a single USB connection and no SD card slot or video output, the Archos 9 isn't very port-friendly. We would have especially liked to see an SD card reader, which would make this a potentially useful tool for on-the-go photographers. Some additional connections, including two extra USB ports and an Ethernet connection, are available via an Archos port replicator. We thought we'd seen some slow Netbooks before, but nothing quite like the Archos 9.
THEY ARE A BIT SLOW, BUT ARE LIGHT ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THEM ANY WHERE

Summary: I REALLY LIKE THE SIZE OF THE ARCHOS 9 TABLET PC. iT COULD USE A BIT MORE STORAGE ON THE MAIN DISK. THE SCREEN IS VERY CLEAR, AND IS EASY ON THE EYES. AS MOST SMALL TABLETS, IT COULD USE BETTER SPEAKERS, BUT THE SOUND PRODUCING CAPABILITIES ARE QUITE GOOD. IT IS REALLY QUITE EASY TO USE AS A PC, AND CAN HANDLE MORE THAN ONE PROJECT AT A TIME I HAVEN'T REALLY USED IT A LOT, BECAUSE OF MY BUSY SCHEDULE.
Summary: ITS NATURALLY HEAVY BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS A HAND HELD DEVICE AND ITS NOT BUT IT WAS WORTH MY MONEY I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO A COMPUTER GEEK ONLY.... MOST PEOPLE WOULD PREFER A ANDROID TABLET.
Excerpt: Linux Mint was my first foray into the world of Linux and I could not be happier. I use it on my work netbook and it is great. It boots quickly and can detect both wired and wireless networks quickly. I haven't played around much with the architecture but it is very easy to download and...
It can be improved to deliver a better performance.

Summary: I have Archos toys since 2004. PMP and MP3 players are amazing, now I have the Archos 5 Android 500GB and I love the storage capacity. In regards to this new Archos 9 PC tablet, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed, with an Intel Atom processor and only 1GB RAM it is slow. I think this product can do much better with another version of Windows, for example XP. In general it is OK, what I like the most is the portability.
