I have to admit, when I first got my Archos 9, I was disappointed. It's just too darn slow. Videos play great, after waiting for Media Player to load. Etc. Etc.
Ok... I did most of the suggestions originally posted in this thread. (I don't want to drop the money on Windows Home Version Pay More For)
Excellent.. performance is up.
Next, I use the tiny microSDHC reader I have with an 8 gig class 6 card and Windows ReadyBoost.
Holy crap! This thing is really starting to perform like I originally expected it to.
Lack of Windows tablet functions... here's a problem. The keyboard really isn't the greatest. So....
First downloaded ritePen 3.5 (Free 30 day Full function trail, $40 US for full)http://www.ritescript.com/Default.aspx
Then it really got interesting. Last thing. I want to quickly rotate the screen.
CTRL+ALT+arrow does it... but a faster way...
ritePen has some cool macro settings, so now a "P" with a circle around it is Portait, and Landscape is the circled "L". (can be set up to any word in a circle, the possibilities are endless)
I really feel the money on the A9 was well spent now.
iPad looks like a mere toy now.
