So I bought this TabletPC awhile back And have really Come to like it. I liked it So much I bought another one, this one is a little newer, its a Motion M1400 and it is much better than the M1200.
I have added a 120 gig hard drive and a gig of RAM. I bought this newer Tablet so I could run Windows 7. So far I am not dissappointed.
Updating the Motion was simple it takes 200 pin DDR RAM, and a standard 2.5 IDE PATA hard drive. Be very slow and careful disconnecting the hard drive because I think the cable would break very easily. I wish it had a SATA connection and it would be cheaper to add a SSD hard drive that would make this computer super fast.
windows 7 ran fine on this thing with 512 MB of RAM. I couldn’t believe how smooth it is. I’ve heard good things but when an old computer can run a new OS better than the one it was made for that’s really something. I’ll be upgrading my Main Computer soon.
Besides running much smoother win7 has Way better hardwriting recognition. I have written this post out by hand and it actually turned it to type.
The M1400 wasn’t intended to ever run Windows 7 but reading a few posts and downloading a driver pack made it possible. Some smart dedicated people figured out how to get around a few driver problems and thanks to them this old computer feels like it’s brand new.
If a person had interest in the ipad they would be will served to check out the many options available in Tablet PCs.
