The coolest gadgets almost always debut overseas. But we'll get them eventually, and we can't wait
A small, light, XP PC
Raon Everun UMPC
The diminutive Raon - 128mm long and less than 500g in weight - is for travellers who want their laptop to feel not much heavier than a densely woven doily. This Windows XP-based handheld sports a full qwerty keyboard, a 4.8in touchscreen that can shift between portrait and landscape modes, and your choice of either a standard 60GB hard drive or 6GB of energy-saving solid-state storage.
Integrated Wi-Fi lets you log on to the internet; a docking station, a car mount, and an external keyboard are optional. This ultramobile PC (UMPC) earns its name with a battery life rated by the maker at 7 hours for the standard battery and 12 hours for a larger, enhanced unit.
Availability: Korea (but at least the enhanced battery should last through the long flight back)
