PCMag: UMPCs on a comeback


PCMag sees a brighter future for UMPCs.

Actually, the brighter future that PCMag is forecasting is more about what Microsoft is calling Ultra-Low Cost PCs (ULPCs) and not UMPCs per se.

I’d also quibble with some other points in the article. A great UMPC in my mind is very much about lightness. Give me a unit as close as you can to one pound and now you have a real winner. Two pounds is OK, but when you get up in the three pound range, it’s just a compact notebook to me.
