pretty good review. Ive always seen pictures of the archos and it always looked very slim to me, howeevr the side shots reveal the trth, it's actually quite thick around the middle.
Although to be fair the thickness isn't too bad compared to other tablets.
The only thng I didn't like, and really got on my nerves is the fact that the devices has 1GB ram and cannot be upgraded, now for windows 7 this is really pushing it. ANd consdiering ram is the most easily upgradable aspect of most notebook/tablet devices this is actually quite annoying.
I would say 2GB ram is the minimum for windows 7, and it's workable if you remove all the bloatware and put windows 7 on a diet removing all drivers/background software that aren't required for a tablet.
I guess with the lightening you could get it to work at 1GB ram, but its goingt o be a straing on the hardd rive with all the swap file caching going on.
