From Zaurus with Love

This is a picture of my wonderful new ultra micro pc. The picture was taken with my phone, transfered to the umpc, then emailed to here with the mail client. Those of you who are ultra geeks will be happy to know that this little wonder doesn't use any of the portable windows clients, but instead runs a shiny linux OS. It runs smooth os silk and I've only crashed it once so far, but I have special talents. The keyboarcd is big enough for me to type with my thumbs rather quickly. This little wonder is a piece of perfection that I've needed for a very long time. the screen is a touch screen and it can spin around.

Thank you Japan for this little beauty.

The Sharp Zaurus isn't available outside Japan. You can import them though. I bought mine through conics.net. This model is actually discontinued, but they can still get it. It is the SL-C1000. The reason I chose this one was because it only uses solid state memiry and not a hard drive. It takes both sd and compact flash memory cards. Also I have a compact flash wireless card. All told it cost me just under 300 pounds and that's with it getting caught coming into the country and getting stuck with paying VAT.

What a great toy. I might have to look into getting something like that.

Pretty expensive "toy". But it is going to be very useful for me. I'll be able to get a lot more writing done now.

Ooooooh...shiny! Don thought seriously about getting a Zaurus at one time when they were available here but it was just too far out of budget.

He might think about getting this model while it's still available. The site I got it from does ship to the US. As I mentioned this model is discontinueing so the price is dropped compared to when it was new.
