New Acer TravelMate C200 Tablet PC Officially Announced in USA

The first thing that you will notice in Acer’s new TravelMate C200 Tablet PC is the innovative “sliding” display mechanism. This is quite different from other Tablet PC’s which use a standard “hinge” to allow the display to rotate and fold. Acer boasts that “thanks to its advanced ergonomics and its one-motion conversion process, the Acer Travelmate C200 Tablet PC creates the “ultimate Tablet PC experience in mobile computing”. Whether or not this is true will be left for users to decide.

On the hardware front, the specs look good. I already love the fact that this model offers a “slot-loading” DVD burner. The addition of a slot loading drive is long passed due in the PC world as Apple has offered this design as a standard for years.

Finally, it is great to see that Acer is using the wonderful NVIDIA Go 6200 GPU for graphics, rather than opting for the less desirable Intel integrated GMA 900 graphics solution.

A few other features to note, Acer also is offering its “ezDock, a PCI Express-based port replicator designed to accommodate up to 24 legacy and next- generation devices”, an “internal Acer MediaBay” that accommodates hot-swappable drives, a choice of second battery, a hard drive up to 100GB and also an optional “Acer MediaBay battery”, rated at up to 8 hours battery life (by the manufacturer).

Pricing starts at $1399. Check out the official specs. below and click on the links for price comparison and store availability:
