Sony's UMPC reviewed. Verdict: why bother?

Sony Vaio VGN-UX50
Our sibling site Digital World Tokyo has a full review of Sony's Ultramobile PC, the Vaio VGN-UX50. We mentioned the VGN-UX50 when it was announced, but DWT scribe J. Mark Lytle has got his hands on an actual VGN-UX50 to test out. Oh, and I'm constantly repeating VGN-UX50 to show you how fricking annoying of a name it is . Is Apple the only company that can come up with product names in English ? And your stupid tetragramical naming scheme doesn't cut it, Motorola.

Ahem. Anyway. Mark's review is pretty thorough, but in the end he wonders why he should give up all the features of his Toshiba laptop just to save 400g of weight in a device that's still too bulky to truly be ultramobile (not unlike its name, which is also on the bulky—you get the idea).

Just to play the sympathy card, I know Mark lost the second half of his review to the evils of Movable Type and had to dash to rewrite it this morning. Knowing first-hand just how much that sucks, I urge you to reward his devotion by checking out the now complete piece.
