I’m in the minority that thinks UMPCs — or at least ultra-portables in general — are the wave of the future. The Internet needs to be mobile, and current laptops are just still too big. Even the MacBook Air, with its svelt design, is too cumbersome.
The problem is, they tend to be pricey. Here, though, is a good deal, at only $850 after rebates, this touch-screen, full-QWERTY LifeBook is a great start for your ultra-portable future.
