Acer launches ‘sliding’ C200 Tablet PC in the US

Acer has brought their TravelMate C200 Tablet PC series to the US market. The new tablet PC is unique in design, it has a ‘sliding’ display mechanism as opposed to the standard hinge that enables other Tablet PC monitors to rotate and fold.

There are two models; the high-profile C204TMi (which retails for US $1899) and the lower end C203ETCi (which sells for $1399). Some people many not be impressed at all by this new ‘sliding’, design but its hardware specs may impress you.

The C200 Tablet PC units feature a slot-loading DVD burner, a feature which has been missing far too long in PCs (Apple has been making the design available to consumers forever!). Acer is using the NVIDIA Go 6200 GPU for graphics, instead of utilizing the less desirable Intel-integrated GMA 900 graphics solution.

Here’s a full features list of the Acer C200 Tablet PCs.
