New Tablet PC Acer 310 available


Acer released their new C310 Tablet PC yesterday. Some details: 2.13 GHz Pentium M, 100GB drive, and 14.1″ display at 1024×768 resolution.

Reacting to the screen size, JK asks: “…if anyone can explain to me why such a large screen should be so low resolution then please do, I’m really interested.”

I’m guessing it’s cost more than anything else. However, I have a couple friends that run their 19+” desktop monitors at 1024×768–so to each his own.

In comparison, the Toshiba M4 also has a 14.1″ display though it includes a higher-res 1400×1050 display, which as a developer I’d prefer. I’m partial to the smaller Tablets though. I enjoy the carryability of my Toshiba M200 which has a 12.1″ display.

Good to see the Acer line of Tablet PCs grow though.
