Sony UX Micro PC named worst notebook of 2006

The UX not being a notebook and recently being named the best-selling handtop notwithstanding, Korean website dcinside.com has proclaimed the UX17 (international variant of the UX180P with CF slot instead of EDGE /GPRS radio) to be the worst notebook of the year. The worst!

Citing poor resolution (1024 x 600), short battery life, and a bad keyboard, the website gave the UX the number-one spot on its list, ranking it "higher" than an HP, Averatec, Lenovo, and even the Sony TX laptop. Why the UX is being compared to full-sized notebook PCs is beyond me, but the list isn’t exactly what I’d call the model of objectivity.

The Korean site bestowed the "best of the year" title onto the iFN-MS12A S3100, which according to Google sure looks like a Korean notebook to me. Other computers on the "best of" list include those by Samsung and LG. Hmm. I wonder where their headquarters are.
