The good folks at Dynamism are all over the soon to be released Sony UX Micro PC and in typical Dynamism fashion have several different configurations available for pre-order. There are three different models offered, two Japanese models and one American model. The Japanese models are converted to English by Dynamism, a solid process they have employed on many different Japanese products they sell in the US. The three models break down like this:
UX90S– 1.2 GHz Intel Core Solo, 512 MB RAM, 30 GB HDD, Intel Graphics 128 MB shared memory, 4.5” screen @ 1024×600, external resolution up to 1600 x 1200, Memorystick Duo slot, CF slot, 1 USB port, dock, 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, integrated keyboard, battery life 4.5 hours, AC Adapter, dock, soft carrying case, stylus, VGA/LAN adapter, strap, Windows XP
UX50– same as above except with a 1.06 GHz Intel Core Solo
UX180P– same as above except native English with 1.2 GHz Intel Core Solo, integrated EDGE via Cingular SIM, no CF slot.
The two Japanese models (UX50, UX90S) have a Sony release date of May 27th and the American model (UX180P) has a Sony US release date of mid July. Dynamism has a number of packages some of which include a DVD+RW portable drive. If you just can’t wait until mid July to grab a Sony UX in the US you don’t have to wait, just get one from Dynamism. I have dealt with them for years and their customer service and support is top notch.
