Archos 604 vs. 605
Ok, ive been looking at both recently. I was leaning toward the 604 because of the more durable back. In a Youtube side by side the 604 was a little bit faster in most aspects. (loading, turning on/off) and it had the replacable battery. Im using it mostly for Web Browsing. I read that the 604 didnt support "flash", most websites use flash, correct?. I want it to look as real as i can compared to a computer, and if many websites use that, it wont look as much like the "real" internet on the 604 vs.605. Other Questions:

1. Does the 605 have a replacable battery for when it eventually degrades and doesnt holda charge
2. How does the WiFi signal of the 605/604 compare to a laptop network card?
3. which is best for WiFi web browsing and majorly, Forums on www.notebookreview.com
4. Does either do IM? Although I did hear of this site: 604wifi.com - ------ But i heard that the 605 has a messenger "Widget" or something. (Yahoo Messenger)

MAIN question: Which is better? :) -Thanks in advance

the big advantage of the 605's web browsing is the 800x480 page width screen versus the 604's more standard 480x272 but you do have to pay for the web browser on the 605

I'm not sure about the replacable battery part. If it's under warranty then they might cover it. Beware, I have never heard a positive report about Archos's customer support.

probably no replacement battery for 605 from archos, if you're good with tools you can do it yourself, there's plenty of batteries on ebay, the 604 is user replaceable
