Configuration and Accessories
The accessories to this computer are as unusual as it itself is. The small universal power adapter fits the overall miniaturization concept perfectly:
A curiously-shaped stylus is included to work with the touch-sensitive screen. It turned to be quite handy, I should confess, and you can tie it to your wrist with the strap.
The manufacturer provided an opportunity to use the VAIO VGN-U750P as an MP3 player and equipped it with a special control device.
The control unit is connected to the sub-notebook through a special connector that consists of an ordinary mini-jack and additional pins.
The unit has a clip to hang it on your clothes, a small single-string LCD screen, and some control buttons any regular MP3 player has.
A portable device calls for a bag or a pouch for safe transportation. The manufacturer includes cloth pouches for the sub-notebook and for the external keyboard.
It’s not quite correct to talk about performance in this particular case. The Sony VAIO VGN-U750P is not even a regular sub-notebook. It is a concept device, a full-fledged computer in a very, very small case. The very fact that this cutie works under control of Windows XP rather than an OS for PDA s and can run “serious” applications deserves our attention.
The VAIO VGN-U750P is easy and pleasant to work with. It is remarkable with the very approach of the manufacturer to building a truly mobile computer: they threw away everything the user can do without, and moved all the expansion options into the external devices. This machine can’t match the functionality of an ordinary notebook, but it fits easily into your pocket as a PDA, while a normal notebook requires a bag or a rucksack.
So I am very thrilled about the Sony innovation and am also glad I can make such a unique device familiar to you.
