Archos 9 PCTablet


This slow and touch-unfriendly tablet doesn't hold a candle to the iPad.

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...

Tablet PC From Archos Is No Competition for iPad


One of the first shots in the tablet war has been fired by Archos. Too bad it missed. Hard.

Archos 9 PC Tablet


Archos is known for its generally well-received portable media players, such as the Android-powered Archos 5 Internet tablet . The company's 9-inch PC product, called the Archos 9 PC Tablet, features a full Windows 7 OS in an effort to meld the media...

Thin design; solid construction; plenty of storage space.

Terribly slow CPU; no way to easily rotate orientation; frustrating touch controls.

The Archos 9 PC Tablet certainly looks the part of a full-OS iPad competitor, but hardware frustrations make it a tough sell.

Archos 9 PC Tablet – Great looks but extremely sluggish


Archos is famous in the market for its PMPs and the manufacturer is trying to replicate this success in other fields too. The Archos 9 PC Tablet is a handheld computing device which has a nine inch screen and comes with Windows 7 OS. This device is...

Archos 9 PC Tablet looks really good for a tablet computer but the novelty will wear off soon. The device is extremely slow even for basic tasks. We think Archos needs to think a bit before they call such devices a Netbook replacement.

Archos 9 has Windows 7


You will not be seeing Windows 7 on desktops and laptops only. The new Archos 9 which is a 9 inch tablet will be also coming with the same operating system. The system weighs 1.8 pounds and has a 1.1 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and a 60GB of...

Do you think of PSPs, cell phones and laptops when someone says portable tech? This UMPC bridges several gaps.

There is little debate that tiny and budget-friendly netbooks are the hot genre in personal computing. Over the last calendar year we have seen an explosion in their popularity and resulting marketplace competition. When it comes to gadgets, what guys...

Archos 9 PCtablet -


Running Windows 7 Starter Edition and powered by an Intel Atom Z510 processor, the latest Archos 9 PCtablet represents the latest attempt by the French company at taking a slice of the lucrative tablet pie.

Expert review by:



The ARCHOS 9 has an attractive look and solid feel to it but like most things in life, it is what's on the inside that counts. That is precisely the problem with this product. The ARCHOS 9 is simply not powerful enough to run Windows 7 well. That makes...

The Archos 9 contains Windows 7 to run all your basic software

This tablet has a short battery life comparatively and has a less responsive touchscreen

This tablet is ideal for patient people who prefer the benefits of a full OS.
