Functional, not fun.
I am disappointed after owning this for two months. What I found was that it gets extremely hot. You can't really put it on your lap and have to be cautious about what surface it's on. It gets that hot. The screen itself, on mine, is a View Anywhere. I found the images dull and without much contrast.No matter how I played with the video controls. Brightness, contrast, gamma, etc there were no sharp images available. I use it for lyric viewing when I play music and the black and white text has to be viewed straight on for best contrast. Side views are quickly washed out. The same goes for video viewing-Netflix, etc. It is large and relatively (for a tablet) heavy. Processes for certain programs are slow. The battery life - on mine is poor - 1-2 hours. The main benefit is that it is a portable computer and for basic writing, web searches, email, and video viewing it is functional and convenient on the road. I paid $220 for mine. I would not purchase this again knowing what I know now. I did buy a Motion keyboard and an external dvd unit. They function well and help with most functions but brought the price up to $280. I would have and may still pay more and get a newer tablet.Read full review

I was not sure about this old of a tablet computer. I have seen other tablets with key board. Once I got the motion computing LE1600 I really like it. Its light, thin. I thus bought the 2nd battery and snap on keyboard and it really made this a great little computer. For being 3 years old and out dated processor it dose every thing most other larger laptops will do. It dose not have a cd drive but a portable one works great. I upgraded from xp tablet to win 7 ultimate and it is much smoother to use. The on screen keyboard is better to use and easy to get to when using other programs. Now that I have use the motion LE1600 I will now spend the money to but the newer model. Well worth it.

dont waste your time
Really not worth it in this day and age. Alot of things have broken on this computer in short time. My stylus stopped working after a couple months of usage. Also the battery that came w it can no longer hold a charge after a few months of use. Fingerprint scanner never worked well, the omnipass software is quite bloated. be warned also that this computer heats up REALLY fast and becomes uncomfortable to hold in your hand for more than 15-30 min. viewanywhere display sort of works outside but will drain your battery quickly.
its understandable that older technology may not work its best anymore but too many things went wrong w this one. Additionally there is very little online support or replacement parts out there for these tablets.
My recommendation is: dont waste your time. If your looking for older/cheaper technology thats more dependable buy something that is more mainstream like a laptop from Dell, ibm, gateway, etc. that would have more web support and more replacement parts available. If your dead set on having a tablet, its probably best to save up for one of the newer ones starting to come out (iPad, blacberry playbook etc).Read full review

Windows 7 works great
If you buy one of these units, I would suggest you install Windows 7 as it works great. The only driver I could not find is for the fingerprint device. Stylus works great or a cheap USB keyboard if you need it. I bought three privately from one of my customers who found that as a portable with a docking station, the practice to dock the computer while it is on can be tricky and the computer will lock up and need a hard restart. It is great as a portable and great docked but not actively docking it.
We have used them all over the world with the Magicjack VOIP phone system and cheap bluetooth earpiece to make free calls back to North America. Try that with an Ipad.

LE1600 review for art and digital sketching
The LE1600, so far, has been everything I was looking for when I bought it. I purchased the slate as a digital sketchpad, a role in which it has proved to serve admirably. I am running windows 7 and sketchbook pro on it. Even with multiple layers open in sketchbook, the system performs with no lag. Battery life is also good, getting about 3 hours with the wifi turned off and the screen dimmed to a quarter brightness (which is still plenty bright for sketching, though for color work I must turn it up). The slate is light, I can carry it around everywhere I go in a shoulder bag and it doesn’t inconvenience me at all. It also feels sturdy when I am drawing on it, and the included stylus is comfortable to grip and write with. The fact that the screen only responds to the stylus is also a plus for me, because as I am drawing I don’t want my hand accidentally marking the image, as it would if I were drawing on the iPad or similar. Make sure you get the model with the viewanywhere screen, as well, it’s extremely helpful.
There are a couple issues, but they are not dealbreakers at all to me. If you look at the cursor closely as compared to the pen tip, you will notice it drifts off center near the edges of the screen, but as I usually draw in the center of the screen, this is not a problem for me. The slate also tends to get a bit hot when connected to power with the screen brightness turned all the way up, but it’s nothing unbearable.
I would recommend this to any artist looking for a digital sketchpad, or possibly a poor man’s substitute for a wacom cintiq. It only has 256 levels of pressure sensitivity, but so far I can’t tell the difference. It’s a blast to draw on and so far it’s actually increased my drawing output, as I love to draw on it.
One last note: the speakers on it are incredibly loud for any laptop, and not bad quality either. The computer itself is very quiet, when the speakers aren’t on.Read full review
