Tablet PC Going in for Repairs


Well, my Tablet PC is once again going in for repairs. This time it’s the power switch. The machine has been working flawlessly since I had the digitzer fixed last year. All of the sudden, sliding the power switch doesn’t provide much resistance and the machine won’t shut off or start. I called Gateway tech support, ready for the worst, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how efficiently the support rep handled the whole thing. We’ll see how the repairs go.

    I had used a Motion Computing M1300 in a project for a few months last summer. I think it’s the same model as the Gateway (via OEM license). I recall that sliding switch – I wish they had a better one, even a simple on-off switch would be more robust as a power switch gets used often.
