I hope Samantha forgives me, but like Sammy before her, she’s about to get replaced. I just pulled the trigger on a Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium which I hope to have within a week’s time. Why did I make this change after using a 900 MHz and 1 GHz UMPC for nearly two years? It’s no secret that I’ve pushed the envelope on my “companion devices” from day one. For my activities, a UMPC can be a desktop or notebook replacement because my general requirements are meager. However, they could benefit from two key upgrades: a 1.33 GHz Core Solo CPU and the native 1024 x 600 display. I prefer a little pep under the hood, which is why I opted to pass on the A110 powered Q1 units; they would have given me the res I wanted, but I think I would have given up too much for that benefit. I’m also leery of the relative performance on the new Intel Atom; if I have to give up too much performance for battery life, I’m simply not interested.I’ll still ink away on the new device and when I bang out gobs of text for posts and articles, I’ll likely use my full-size, but folding, Bluetooth keyboard from ThinkOutside. For my workstyle, the QWERTY thumb-board has little to no use although I’ll probably use the J and K keys to read my feeds in Google Reader. I have received a fair number of inquiries on the Q1P over the past year; once I get settled in with the new Q1 I’ll list Samantha for best offer if anyone is interested. I may even make it a dual-deal for Samantha and Eeegor, the Eee PC, at this point.
