Sony Vaio P500 alternatives

HP Slate 2, 8.9 inch, 690 grams (1.52 lbs)
The HP Slate 2 is a Windows 7 Tablet powered by an Intel Atom Z670 clocked at 1.5 GHz. It has up to 64GB mSATA Storage and should last with its 2-cell (30WHr) battery up to 7.5 hours. With the possibility to add the Tablet to the optional dock one can have 2 more USB 2.0 ports plus the ability to extend the screen via HDMI to another device.
Cisco Cius, 7.0 inch, 522 grams (1.15 lbs)
Netbook Navigator Nav 7, 7.0 inch, 590 grams (1.3 lbs)
A 7" UMPC built on Atom fills a requirement for a number of markets but take note, this is the older Atom platform. (Z5XX) with the slower GPU (200Mhz compared to 400Mhz on the Z6xx series.) It's strange to see a device like this without any form of video out. The rear-mounted touch panel and mouse buttons should improve Windows usage although we would want to test that before recommending a buy. Weight seems acceptable - 550gms
Toshiba Libretto W100 (W105-L251 PLW10U-00201V ), 7.0 inch, 699 grams (1.54 lbs)
A new and interesting design from Toshiba. Dual capacitative touchscreens and some well-integrated keyboard software make this a very interesting choice in the UMPC sector. Heat could be a problem and battery life with the small battery down to 2hrs. High-performance CPU should drive Windows 7 touch and muti-touch features well. Premium price.
HP Slate (500), 8.9 inch, 700 grams (1.54 lbs)
Great progress for small form-factor slates. The 1.86Ghz CPU coupled with 2GB of RAM and, if fast, the 64GB SSD should drive WIndows 7 well. Capacative and Digitiser screen, 680gm and a great price means this is a leading UMPC right now.
Viliv X70 EX, 7.0 inch, 660 grams (1.46 lbs)
Samsung Q1EX, 7.0 inch, 648 grams (1.43 lbs)
Archos 7 (320GB), 7.0 inch, 640 grams (1.41 lbs)
Gigabyte M700, 7.0 inch, 650 grams (1.43 lbs)
ASUS R70a, 7.0 inch, 730 grams (1.61 lbs)
With an estimated 4 hours battery life this will make a nice upgrade from the R2E model.
