the new sony ultralight pc

News.com wonders if the new Sony ultralight PC (6x4 inches, 1.2 lb, 512 MB RAM, 20 gig drive) will take on the iPod. This is a ridiculous idea for a number of reasons, starting with the $2000 price tag for the same storage capacity you get on an iPod for about one-tenth of the price (or less, considering that probably 25% of the drive goes to Windows and various apps).

What I'd be wondering, instead, is if this will be finally the ultraportable that cracks the US market, or if this is the first of many "webtop" devices people use around the house, a kind of portable display. Ebook-reading, web browsing, quick note-taking, tasks, and email would be good tasks for this machine.

Regardless, it looks fantastic doesn't it?
