The M704 is the smallest 7″ 1024×600 UMPC you can buy. It’s got a 3hr+ battery life, 1.2Ghz VIA C7 CPU, slide-out keyboard, has a good set of accessories available, weighs under 800gm and comes in at a good value price. Why is it that I’m not getting excited? Because of images like this? [see full article...]
I remember when the Medion UMPC came out (built on the same platform as the M704.) The specs were very inviting but when I got hands-on, the plastics, keyboard and thickness really put me off.
I propose to abolish the keyboard or even better, to reduce weight and achieve the objective of a more slim, anyway handwritten or click on the screen, can be overcome.
