The UX Micro, which will be available online and in stores for $1,800 in about a month, uses Intel’s new Core Solo Ultra Low Voltage processor for standard PC performance in a 1.2-pound package.
It runs Windows XP Professional and has a 4.5-inch touch screen as well as a small fold-out keyboard for text entry.
The PC also has built-in Wi-Fi and can connect to Cingular’s cellular network. A built-in fingerprint scanner can lock up passwords and important data.
There is a 1.3-megapixel camera on the back and another camera on the front, with a microphone, for video calls.
Less futuristically, the UX Micro comes standard with a 30-gigabyte hard drive and has a battery life of about 2.5 hours.

This could be a great device to use to check in patients. Smaller (and cooler) than a tablet.
