UK gets new Sony UX with Vista

UPDATE: A U.S. version dubbed the UX Premium Micro PC (VGN-UX390N) will be available for $2,500 next month. Like all the other models, this one will swap the CF slot for WWAN.

The newest upgrade to the Sony UX series looks to be headed for the UK.


The February issue of Stuff magazine showcases an all-black UX1XN that packs a 32GB solid-state disk, 1GB RAM, 1.33 GHz Intel Core Solo U1500 processor, and of course Windows Vista under its hood. Typical of international models in the UX series, the UX1XN has both Memory Stick Duo and Compact Flash slots (and no WWAN module). Priced at £2,000 ($3,861), this Franken-top is nicely spec’d (it’s essentially just a mash-up of some of the best features on other models) but I was hoping for a hardware upgrade.

Even though the first line of the article is "There’s an old addage that suggests one should not fix what ain’t broke," the UX1XN is the fifth (?) identical (save for the color) Micro PC in the series. I do love the design and all, but this is seriously getting out of hand.
