Best option?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys..,

It seems the UMPCs and MIDs are in full motion recently.

I have a iPod Touch and it is great for keeping me busy while I commute on the train 2 hours a day.

But lately with all the nifty gadgets coming out, the Touch feels a little inadequate. So I want you guys opinion.

So I basically would like to have the option of being able to browse with a WiFi, read PDF (occasionally Word) files, watch couple of movie clips.

I was thinking about buying an eReader but for $400+ (Sony e-Reader) I think it will be a waste of time.

 

So what would you guys go for?

Keeping in mind that I will have to operate this thing while traveling standing up.

Few options are:

Eee PC: http://eeepc.asus.com/global/products.html?n=0

Sony Vaio P: http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores...552921644608896

Archos: http://www.archos.com/

 

If you guys have any alternative please let me know.

 

Cheers.

My friend has an Eee PC and he loves it. I've used it a bit and it's pretty nice. Handles things nice and quick, good sized screen, and the keyboard's pretty nice for how small it is and how big my hands are. I have no complaints against it. He gets like 5 hours of battery too. I'd throw my vote to the Eee PC.

Thanks for the input guys.

The Eee looks nice but I think it maybe a little difficult to handle.

Do you guys know anything cheaper but like a tablet. Where I can swirl the screen and its touch sensitive? So I can real something easily...

Love my 1000HE. Keyboard is great, multitasking is a snap, and it overclocks!

 

I posted some comments one directory up if you're interested in taking a look. Plus the price will be way cheaper than the Dell Mini's and far less than a tablet of any kind.

 

Cheerio
