CES - World's smallest Windows Vista-capable computer

First shown at Bill Gates's keynote, the OQO model 02 is being billed as the world's smallest Windows Vista-capable computer and the first computer in the UMPC Pro category. The miniature device weighs just 1 pound and measures 5.6 by 3.3 by 1 inches.

According to OQO, the model 02 features numerous improvements over its predecessor. It's up to four times faster, and has a significantly brighter display (up to six times brighter than the model 01). The improved keyboard is now backlit and has capacitive TouchScrollers for easy navigation. The model 02 also provides an array of wireless connectivity: EV-DO Wireless WAN, 802.11 a/b/g, and optional EV-DO 3G support.

Prices start at US$1499 for a unit with a 1.5-GHz processor, a 60GB hard drive, and 1GB of memory. The OQO model 02 is due to ship by the end of the first quarter.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
