Le Pan II TC979 Overview
The Le Pan II is basically the same design as the original Le Pan tablet we reviewed last year. I really do like this size and feel that Le Pan has with their tablets. Le Pan uses a 9.7-inch XVGA display with a 1024 x 768 resolution. Right above the top of the screen is a 2-MegaPixel webcam for video calling.
Flipping the Le Pan II over you can see one of my favorite parts of this tablet. The entire backside of the tablet is brushed aluminum. This not only looks awesome and protects your laptop it feel great when using a picking up the tablet as well. There is a small Le Pan logo in the center. The actual dimensions of the tablet itself are 9.29 x 7.44 x 0.48 inches and it weighs 1.5lbs so it has a very solid feel to it.
On the left side of the back of the tablet are 2 small stereo speakers. I was pretty impressed with the speakers on the original Le Pan tablet so it will be interesting to see how well these speakers perform. On the opposite side there is a place where you can attach the included lanyard.
At the top is where you will find all of your connections and buttons. starting from left to right you have the power button, hold switch, volume up / down rocker, microSD card slot, 30pin USB connector and finally the headphone jack. I really like that everything is in one place at the top for easy access.
