The Sony Vaio UX Micro PC is an Ultra-Mobile Portable Computer (UMPC) that weighs around 490–544 g (1.20–1.27 lb) with a slide-out hardware QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen, Intel Core 2 Solo processor, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and WWAN. Though not officially stated as such, and even to a point implied by Sony that the UX is a move in a new direction and not a specific continuation of such, the Sony UX is speculated by some[who?] to be the newest model in the popular Sony U-series. However, there is still debate over whether UX is a genuine Micro PC or not.
