Another very impressive device that I'm itching to get my hands on is the Sony Vaio UX-280p. This device belongs to the class known as Ultra-Micro PCs. It has a 4.5 inch screen, which slides upwards to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. Coming with 1GB RAM, 40GB Hard Disk and pre-installed Windows XP and a number of productivity apps - this device is very attractive to the highly mobile proffessional. It is especially appealing to me because it means I can have two computers in my bag (main: Apple Macbook - Black, and UX280p) without the bulk, weight and inconvenience of two laptops in a bag!
Besides having Bluetooth, Wifi and WWAN (Edge Cellular Modem) as well as built in USB and Audio ports, it comes with a port replicator that provides 3 more USB ports, VGA out, Audio in/out and Ethernet. This is kinda neat because it means that while in the office, you basically can hook it up to full size screen, keyboard and mouse to get full Desktop functionality.
