CTL 2goPAD goes on sale; weak battery find reviewers

Oct 14, 2010

The Windows 7 tablets continue to trickle out, and there's good news and bad.  The good news is that, if you've been waiting for a 10.1-inch slate with a capacitive touchscreen, Atom N450 processor and 2GB of RAM, then CTL can help: their CTL 2goPAD is on sale now, priced at $499.  The bad news is that it isn't all that great.

Laptop Mag reviewed the 2goPAD, and while they found it was a reasonable performer with a decent number of ports, it's also heavy and battery life is short: 3 hours and 15 minutes of constant browsing.  They're also not convinced with Windows 7 as a tablet OS, despite CTL's few tweaks to the UI.
