Reviews for the Archos 101

79% Review Archos 101 Tablet/MID | Notebookcheck
Bargain tablet? In addition to a plethora of tablets in various sizes, Archos also offers a model in the popular 10" format with the 101. A light and slim case is just as attractive as the HDMI and USB 2.0 equipment features. We looked into what one can really expect at a current price of 280.- Euros.

This is far from an impressive tablet and came as something of a disappointment given Archos' strong legacy in portable entertainment products. The price is a palatable £229, but we think most people will find the BeBook or Creative Ziio better options, while 3G and the Samsung Galaxy Tab or the Linx N700 are not far away, price-wise.

The Archos 101 is a little unwieldy for one-handed use, has an average screen and slightly unresponsive touchscreen, for a capacitive model, but with a tweak or two it's a very versatile and useful entertainment device. We'd recommend waiting for the next generation of tablets to arrive before making a buying decision though, especially when the first-gen iPad's price drop shows that prices could tumble significantly.

Ultimately, the good battery performance and connectivity features are not enough for us to recommend the device given the lack of business features, poor screen and lack of Flash support. We would urge users to wait for the Motorola Xoom Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet.

Archos has a reasonably priced, well performing and versatile internet tablet on offer with the 101, which despite its faults is ultimately a far more flexible device than the iPad. Apple fans will no doubt exacerbate its weaknesses, and they will have a point if display performance and build quality is a priority, but for those looking to experience the benefits of a lap-based tablet this is one the more compelling devices currently available.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.53 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
