Sony Vaio UX series micro PC
I used to have one of those first generation PDAs when PDAs were still in monochrome color and the most you could use it for was to keep track of your appointments and some addresses and telephone numbers. Okay, maybe you could pretend to read a book, but there really weren’t that many eBooks available back then. And I always thought it was sort of a waste of technology to have such an “advanced” device just to tell me what day it was. Plus half the time I could barely see what was on the screen because that screen just wasn’t very bright and not very easy to read. Nonetheless, since I’m such a gadgety kinda gal, I ran around with one in my workbag anyway.
Now, let me introduce you to something almost as small as a PDA, but can do a whole heck of a lot more. The new Sony Vaio UX series micro PCs are small and lightweight, but they come fully equipped with a 30 GB hard drive, wireless WAN/Lan, Bluetooth technology, a 4.5” LCD touch screen, a slide-out backlit keyboard, built-in microphone, and TWO (not just one) built-in cameras, one in the front facing out, and one facing the user.
Weighing just a little more than 1 lb, the Sony Vaio UX series machines feature Intel Core Solo Processor and Microsoft XP Professional operating system. Ready with various media slots, USB ports, even a port replicator connector, this little baby is prepared to go anywhere with you. And if you're directionally challenged like I am, you can even add an optional Bluetooth GPS receiver and turn your UX Micro into a portable navigation assistant. Globe trotters rest assure, if you’re worried that these machines are so little that they may get lost or stolen, they are equipped with a fingerprint security system to ease your mind.
There are 3 models to choose from, with prices ranging from $1799 to $2199 USD. Available at Dynamism.Com
