  • Love this tablet! No major problems here either...

    Mar 11, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Relative affordability, processor speed, tablet functionality, and much more.
    Cons: Battery life (common for tablets), minor calibration/pen issues, weight (not a problem for me)

    Summary: The CX2620 was my first laptop purchase, although I have always been an avid fan of technology and computers. Choosing the CX2620 was an easy decision. The CX2620 is one of the first tablet pc’s that have become affordably priced. Also, whereas most ... read more

  • Great Laptop, Not So Good Tablet.

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Detachable battery, perfect keyboard size
    Cons: Heavy. Better laptop than tablet PC.

    Summary: I bought this computer in the Summer of 2006 to use at college. As a chemistry major, I thought that the pen and tablet function would be useful in math and science classes to right down formulas. However, the size and weight made it unwieldy to drag ... read more

    Pros: Screen was easy to keep clean with a microfiber cloth.
    Cons: Weak hinge, heavy, no after-market stylus, Gateway customer service is slow.

    Summary: I purchased the Gateway CX2620 in June 2006 from BestBuy for $1499 (with a 3 year warranty thank God) intending to use it to teach math when school reopened in September. When I turned it on in August to try it out, the stylus did not function. After ... read more

    Pros: Its a tablet, speed, durability
    Cons: battery life

    Summary: Here is a true tablet for the masses. It has all the function you will ever want with a cost that comes in toward the bottom. The convertable style lets you work with the tablet on the table and stylus action is at hand. Battery life is about three ... read more

    Pros: Display, tablet features, value
    Cons: Size/weight, Gateway tech support

    Summary: I've had my CX2620 for about 8 months, purchased new at BestBuy. The first one I got had display problems that could not be solved, but the 2nd unit I got has been just fine and used nearly every day. Given issues in general with Windows laptops, I ... read more
