So, about two weeks ago I got tired of not being able to connect to certain school websites with my iPaq HX4700, so I started looking around at my alternatives. At first I concentrated on another iPaq (the 110 in this case), but realized that while I loved the small form factor I wasn't convinced that the 110 would give me a significantly better experience as I had upgraded the HX's RAM to 128mb a couple of years ago, the CPU was running at the same clock speed (albeit now I could watch better encoded movies on the newer device), and it was running the same OS (WM6.1 don't ask me how). I started looking at other options, at first the OQO, but then the Sony UX series after I saw how under powered the OQO was. I picked up a nearly new UX380n about a week ago and today it finally arrived... and it is certainly living up to my expectations As you can see it has a MUCH smaller footprint than my M700... about 75% smaller It is as thick though. I do have the pocket space for it though in my scrubs so this should not be much of an issue. It weighs quite a bit more than the HX so I will be cinching up those strings tight to keep my pants up... we'll see how that goes. Just another view of it opened up exposing the keyboard. What I've noticed in using it over the past couple of hours is that while it does take MUCH longer to boot from a cold state it does seem more responsive once it is up and running. It also takes quite a bit longer to install updates. I'm sure that this is probably due to it's single core processor (which can and most likely will be upgraded in the near future to a U7700 dual core unit) and the 4200RPM 1.8" drive... also I've been watching it and as they say about a watched pot... I purchased one more copy of Win7 (my $30 student copy) to install on this thing so hopefully that will speed up the booting with a clean install of an OS and all (I really don't feel like installing Win7's RC only to have to reinstall the full version in a couple of days).
