UMPCs are kawaii as fuck.

I hope they make one with a cherry trail atom soon.

On a side note, do y'all think the physical keyboard is really necessary? Wouldn't a precision stylus + onscreen keyboard be better?

I was conflicted between this and a Vaio UX, ended up with the
UX though. Currently using an IdeaPad S10 Bluetooth tethered to my phone

No vomit-chan, that would actually be very bad. The physical keyboard is part of what makes them good.

How about a cute little subnotebook that you can hold in one hand? Not my pic, but I've got this exact model.

This thing is smaller and thinner than most laptops you can buy today. It's also running at .3ghz and mine has 256mb of RAM, but you can't have everything in life.

Toshiba 3110ct. I had #! on it years back, but recently replaced the HDD with a 16gb compact flash card and have Windows 98 installed. Struggling to get the VGA driver working though; miraculously, Toshiba still provides downloads on their site, but only for 95 or NT. Trying to choose between those right now. I also carelessly busted a scissor switch on the keyboard while messing with it (Pause/Break, which is pretty useless but would bother me forever) so I have a new keyboard assembly in the mail, which will also provide a new trackpoint cover. The old rubber rotted many years ago, and I've been using a cutdown pencil eraser instead.

That's awesome. Does the battery still work after all this time, or did you purchase a new one of those too?

Battery is thoroughly defunct, but is removable and replacements are still available. I'm thinking to use it as a static ssh terminal, without a battery installed at all. Though if I luck into a deal on a couple gigs of MicroDIMM memory that might change; it would be a pretty great 4chan machine.

I have a PSP 2000, looking into buying a camera attachment thanks to another anon that posts in these threads.

Thats awesome, I totally forgot about them. They are selling for $70 new on ebay!

What kind of emulators and games do you play? GBA?
>>
>>52930001
I got mine for $35 a few months back. And I have recently taken to GBA games but I've gotten PSP games running decently on here when I don't have the CPU under clocked. The battery life is sub par but that could be solved with a larger one. With CM9 running I'd say it does extremely well at running games up to the PS1 era and gets around or a little over 3 hours play time :D

Hey Brad Linder here, the main writer of Liliputing. At Liliputing we shy away from the big contenders of tech and favor the small.

The electronics maybe, the shelf on the other hand. I have a shelf in my closet that's sagging considerably under the weight of 2 rather old laptops (1988 Zenith Supersport 286 and a 1997 IBM Thinkpad 760E) and an old camcorder (the kind that records onto full size VHSes).

Wow, it can handle PSP games? That is impressive! Maybe I can get star wars battlefront running on it! 3 hours is pretty nice if you ask me, especially since I can just carry around a spare battery in my wallet!

>>52930031
Hey Brad! I am not sure if your whole persona is a troll or not, but I really like that ultraportable that you posted about. What an interesting idea to have the keyboard like that. I would like to see some real photos though, and not those clearly computer modeled and generated ones.

It even has the brick form factor

Pretty neat idea though. It's ridiculous at first glance, but being able to switch operating systems entirely—at the hardware level—could actually be useful. It lets your phone function as a phone, and your mobile computer function as a computer. I could see that working, though I doubt the idea would ever move enough units for an actually good implementation to appear.

While in Japan, we also bought a Vaio UX and a Vaio PCG-U3, both very neat and very very small.
>>
>>52930837
It was reasonably usable, however hitting the return key or using the keys closer to the edge resulted in the whole keyboard flexing at the central pivot point, that would be the only downside to the folding arrangement.

The screen was fine and it ran with a reasonable amount of zip, so if later down the line you see one on eBay cheap I'd go for it. But only as a toy, it felt like a $200-$300 toy, not a $1298 business tool.

The UX is really cute and feels solid as a rock, it feels like a fatter PSP in the hand. The keyboard (if you could call it that) is almost usable, but I doubt you could write out anything longer than an email or two before you got sore fingers as the buttons have almost no travel or feedback.

The bios is so cute to look at, occupying only 3" or so by default.

desktop applications with desktop interfaces that don't treat you like a dipshit, instead web frontend "apps" full of ads and shitty giant buttons made for fat fingering that steal space away from the actual information

actual multitasking instead of retarded touch gesture/button shit with slow ass animations that require you to scroll through one fucking application at a time instead of just hitting alt+tab a couple times or switching virtual desktops

no shitty software touch keyboard taking up half of the already tiny as shit screen

I carry around 3 accessories. Might get a smaller mouse if one exists.

The blue thing is a wallet and I keep my phone in that. The controller is a phonejoy 2 and it extends around your phone PSP style. The keyboard is a sketchy Chinese rubber rollup keyboard, but it's not terrible. The mouse is a generic Bluetooth mouse.

Out of curiosity what makes tablets uncomfy?

I find mine pretty comfy to use most of the time, though I do kind of wish I had an windows one sometimes.
>>
>>52932753
I haven't. Didn't know there were issues. I'll fix them when I do the cf card mod then.

The lack of a keyboard and no cursor control other than touchscreen
>>
>>52932775
>CF card mod
Nice, I'm popping an mSATA SSD in mine
>>
>>52932760
Because if I wanted to do real work I would use the computer on the desk of my office. If I was traveling I would use a regular laptop.
>>
>>52932744
No, but I don't own do skinny jeans either.
>>
>>52932776
I kind of get that, but touch interfaces have come a pretty long way, so I don't find it much of a hindrance these days, plus even android supports Bluetooth keyboards and mice if you ever needed them
>>
>>52932708
That doesn't look very comfy.
>>
>>52932776
The lack of a physical keyboard is only an issue if you are writing essays or some shit on it, at which point the shitty keyboards of any of these other meme devices are no good either.
>>
>>52932809
For me at least, the point in such a device is that I don't need external peripherals for basic functionality.

>>52932814
Yeah, nah. Every time I use my tablet I wish it had a keyboard. My phone does have a keyboard. Your opinions ≠ fact.
>>
>>52932813
It's practical though, isn't it?
>>
>>52932787
yeah, have fun trying to comfortably use some unwieldy 15'' widescreen piece of shit on an airplane or a bus/train/car

I'll take my chances with my "autistic" netbook that works fine because I'm not blind or morbidly obese

You need a flat surface to use your keyboard and mouse, not very practical at all.
>>
>>52932855
:o)
>>
>>52932849
How about those 11" ultra portable notebooks, some of them are even reasonable price wise
>>
>>52932906
Not any anon in this conversation, but if I had a need for a smaller device with a keyboard, I'd get a chuwi hi10. Dual full size usb, Atom z8300, 4/64 GB with microsd expansion, and a 10" 1200p screen tablet with a transformerbook like base with a solid hinge. For ~$230 with keyboard its pretty cheap too.
>>
As someone who owns a 12.1" convertable and an 8" tablet with bluetooth keyboard/trackpoint combo, I have to say that the only advantage the tablet has over the laptop is weight. The laptop (10 years ago) got 11 hours battery and provided all of the same functionality with the added bonus of being faster (it's still faster than a modern atom and gets the same battery) and having interchangeable parts. Of course it is a lot thicker than something newer but it's still about the same weight as something newer. The tablet and keyboard weighs so little that it is negligible and it provides the same amount of functionality but with a smaller screen and no interchangeable parts. I can never upgrade the ram, storage, or wireless cards.

So really unless you need something with as small a footprint as possible, it is silly to go under 12.1" for a laptop like device.

Also, I love my t2020. I just wish it had newer hardware and wasn't dying a slow, noisy death.
>>
>>52932979
Pic related.

I wish more computers and keyboard came with clit mice. They are significantly better than trackpads, especially the small trackpads.
>>
>>52932906
I recommend an X220 Tablet. They fit in small drawstring bags.
>>
>>52933018
I do too. I don't mind trackpads but small ones are terrible. I recently started using the clit on my Latitude and when I pulled out my netbook I kept going for the nonexistent clit
>>
>>52933044
Yeah. You can't see it in the picture, but the bluetooth keyboard has one and the laptop has one. The one on the laptop is actually modded and not original. The computer originally came with an offbrand trackpoint that was absolutely horrible and barely worked even with the right drivers so I ripped it out and put in a different model. I had to use tape, but it's held for three years without budging.

I keep thinking about buying a thinkpad keyboard and trying to mod in an actual trackpoint just to see what happens.

>>
>>52929966
$350 isn't bad at all. A part-timer at McDonalds could buy that.
>>
>>52933375
It's only the chinks, there are quality Microsoft and Logitech bluetooth keyboards. But most of the time they don't even have something as basic as arrow keys.

They only have the most basic keys required to tell everyone your life on Facebook, meaning not much aside from letters, numbers and a space bar.

After owning my Asus EEE for a few days I can already type at 65 WPM. For comparison I top out at 75-80 on my desktop and 40 on my phone with a touch screen keyboard and I don't see my self being able to type much faster than that on a smaller tablet. Not to mention the additional comfort of having the screen sticking up instead of laying down in your lap.

>>52933932
Get the 901, it's the only one on that list with an Intel Atom instead of the older Celeron M.

You cannot fit an EEE in a pocket. It is no more portable than a laptop.

My EEE is slightly smaller than a 10" tablet and is about the size of a hardcover book, it's is significantly more portable than a normal size laptop and could fit in a decent size purse. You seem to be forgetting that there's a range of carry options between pockets and backpack.

I could live with tablet/phablet if i could get bluetooth mechanical keyboard in size of those in old Jornada or Psions. Considering I still haven't found this unicorn, Htc Shift plus EEE 901 will do nicely.

It looks like I installed Cyanogenmod 7.1.0 on it a long time ago but it still takes minutes to open most apps and even then they crash often. I've been looking around for any lightweight roms that will run but haven't really found anything. Good news is it actually runs a GBA emulator nearly perfectly.

Sometimes speed just doesn't trump elegance. :( I miss that laptop.

That looks nice but I really like how tiny the Micro screen is. Makes even old games look good with dat pixel density. If you've played the Mega Man Battle Network games, things got a lot smaller and better looking in 4 and onward, but on a Micro, 3 and older look almost as good.
>>

I don't give a fuck what it feels like in my pocket. Rather have something more bulky that is way more comfortable to play on. That form factor is the only comfortable way to play fast paced games. The SP is an abortion form factor
