Reviews for the Motion CL900 Tablet
Source: PC Mag
The Motion Computing CL900 is a competent Windows tablet, and one of the first released with businesses in mind. Unfortunately, a great deal of the usefulness that the CL900 offers is due to accessories that are sold separately, like the digital stylus and docking station. While the CL900 still offers long battery life, a solid feature set, and decent performance, the ease of use just can't compare to devices that include the necessary extras. The Acer Iconia Tab W500 for example, comes with a docking keyboard and mouse, making it considerably more user-friendly. The Fujitsu Stylistic Q550, the most direct competitor to the CL900, includes an identical stylus, but rather than making it an optional accessory, it's bundled with the tablet, offering the benefits right out of the box. The Q550's numerous security features and the dramatic difference in price—$1,125 as opposed to the Fujitsu's $849 price tag—the Motion Computing CL900 is clearly left behind.

The ruggedness goes some way to justifying a price of more than a grand, but the Motion CL900 remains very much a niche, expensive product. It’s meant to be a consumer-style tablet for specialist roles, but the lack of power means even those specialists will probably lean towards Motion’s more traditional, powerful tablet alternatives.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z670: Slow single core processor for tablet pcs that includes the GMA 600 graphics card (with video decoding features) and a DDR2-800 memory controller (max 2 GB).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
