Motion Computing LE1600 Reviews

CNET has a Motion LE 1600 Review :

In the world of pure-slate tablet PCs, the Motion M1400 has long been the model to beat. Enter the new Motion LE1600, which builds upon its older sibling with a faster processor, more RAM, and double the L2 cache–all in a lighter package. The LE1600’s carbon-fiber chassis is as corporate as a gray flannel suit, but its sleek design and the powerful performance woven inside make for a sexy fashion statement. If you’re sold on slate tablets and can stomach paying more than $2,000 for a computer without a keyboard, this is the machine for you.

The Motion LE1600 shares roughly the same dimensions as the M1400, measuring 11.6 inches long, 9.5 inches wide, and 0.7 inch thick. The 3.3-pound LE1600 weighs 0.1 pound less than the Fujitsu Stylistic ST5000, and it feels well balanced in the hand; you can easily hold the tablet in one hand while writing with the other, using the rubberized main battery as a grip. The thin extended battery adds little to the form factor. The tablet’s AC adapter brings the travel weight to a portable 3.9 pounds–a full pound lighter than the Fujitsu Stylistic ST5000’s travel weight.

Writing on the LE1600’s screen feels almost like writing with pen and paper, thanks to the rubberized digitizer stylus, which has the contours and easy grip of a Cross pen.

The bottom line of this nice review:
“Lighter and smaller than the competition, the admittedly pricey Motion LE1600 is one of the best full-size slate tablets we’ve seen so far.”

Editors’ rating for this tablet pc was “Very good”.
