Motion LE1600 (Pentium M 758 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM, 30GB HDD, XP Tablet 2005)

 

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...

Thin and light; bright 12.1-inch screen; good performance; tethered stylus; fingerprint sensor and Trusted Platform Module; three-mic array.

No optical drive; no FireWire; small hard drive; keyboard costs extra; expensive; limited tech-support hours.

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.

Motion Computing LE1600

 

The 12-inch LCD screen is still the best among tablets. We tilted the screen every which way, and saw crisp and colorful images from every angle. The unit's backside is made of magnesium alloy, which keeps the unit cool while it rests in your arms; a...

Superior screen. TPM security suite. Improved components

Needs an optical drive in the dock. No FireWire port

The Motion Computing LE1600 is our latest Editors' Choice among tablets, thanks to improved components, a superior screen, and an airtight security suite.

Motion Computing J3400 Tablet PC

 

With a list price of $2,384, the J3400 is certainly the rugged tablet we would recommend for those who need a tablet PC without the extra burden of a convertible setup.

Motion LE1600

 

When back in 2001 a small group of Dell executives decided to leave their lucrative employment in order to start Motion Computing, a company dedicated to building pen slates, most industry insider thought those guys had gone a bit loco. Despite...

While pen slates, and especially pen slates as thin as this one, usually don't have a lot of onboard connectivity, the LE1600 has plenty. There are two USB 2.0 jacks, audio in and out, infrared, an RJ-45 connector for the unit's gigabit Ethernet, VGA...

"A dream-come-true for digital artists!"

 

I use this "blast from the past" every day to paint heavy space art in Corel Painter 11, book illustrations in Photoshop CS3, and entire graphic novels in Manga Studio 4 EX. Honestly, it never lags the cursor on inking or crosshatching and it never...

1. Very light.

1. Standard 512 MB Ram is not enough for heray digital painting. Upgrade to 2 GB (4 max).

"Great for mobile salesman Loaded with features"

 

the bottom line is, now that I've gone to a motion computing non-flip screen tablet. I will continue with their lines of products because of the easy use and the dependability of had thus far. If you install a USB map program, you will have a 12 match...

I hate having to open my laptop while on the move. . I no longer have to go and open my laptop. When I get to my customers office, now I just go right to work. You can upgrade the RAM, to make it faster.Reads hand witting great!

not good to leave in Sun. The unit does get hot after a while, especially in this Texas sun. Loading things from USB drives can be annoying at times. USB two keyboards work only when the unit is plugged in, and not when on battery power. Only.

With so many things done right, it's amazing how frustrating this is for me to use.

 

It's really amazing what you can do with this little thing. I selected the Motion because I am working (application and BI development) and going to school. I selected basically all of the options with maximum memory and hard drive. When I get to...

Very fast. Excellent video quality. Just the right size

Very poor wireless reception. Sub-par bluetooth drivers. Expensive. Occaisionally overheats or consumes too much power
