Top 12 weirdest notebooks

Because 10 just wasn't enough, we look at 12 of the strangest and most outlandish notebooks

6. Sony VAIO mod


These guys have modded a Sony VAIO UX490N UMPC into a device that can do almost everything. It’s been amped up technologically, too; the original Core 2 Solo processor has been replaced by a more powerful Intel Core 2 Duo U7700 1.33GHz processor and overclocked to 1.438GHz; a 128GB RunCore Pro IV SSD replaced the original 48GB SSD, and the Intel 3945ABG WiFi card has been swapped for a wireless-N capable Intel 4965AGN card. If that wasn’t enough for you, this modded VAIO is loaded with four operating systems: Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows Vista Business, Windows XP Pro and Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.7 -- just in case you can’t make a decision.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
