The Archos 101XS comes with its own keyboard, which is great, but is it worth its $400 price?

Thanks to its lack of a palm rest and truncated space compared to other keyboards, the 101XS's keyboard will feel cramped to those of us with large hands.

The stand props the tablet up. While this works fine when it's resting on a flat surface, tipping it forward or attempting to rest on your lap can prove to be quite the dangerous experience for your new tablet. All kidding aside, Archos should have included a locking mechanism.

There it is. Once the tablet stand is up, the tablet can be "safely" connected to the coverboard.

This is where the magic happens. The magnetic attraction that brings these two complete opposite pieces together.

The two pieces magnetically sandwich together. I think it's love. Also, the tablet's metal plate can be seen here.

Archos rarely skimps on port features. Here, left to right are the microSD card, micro USB, headphone jack, and mini HDMI. The power button are volume rocker are on the opposite edge.

If you look closely enough you see the exact point where the bezel's edge meets the screen. This is also the moment when I begin to lose hope.

The metal plate can be pulled up if you can get a fingernail underneath it. Which, as it turns out, isn't too difficult.
