Personal Technology | Walt Mossberg | This Time, Samsung Has Made a Tiny PC That's Practical to Use

 See the full post for more details and a video overview (this is the no-subscription-required version)

The Q1 Ultra is a sleek, shiny, black tablet with a bright, sharp seven-inch screen that feels great in the hand and has a built-in stand on the back so it can be used upright. It weighs about 1.5 pounds, is less than nine inches long and five inches wide, and is under an inch thick. It’s slightly smaller and lighter than last year’s model.

The Q1 Ultra is run by a special, low-horsepower Intel processor and has only one gigabyte of memory, which can’t be expanded. But it runs Vista acceptably, if not exactly speedily. You can get one with Windows XP for faster performance.
