Brulé's minimalist Vega UMPC

updated 11:15 am EDT, Wed October 18, 2006

Brulé Vega UMPC

The Japanese supplier Brulé has begun carrying a new UMPC that caters to less demanding users. Instead of the more common low-voltage Celeron M and Pentium M processors, the Vega is powered by a 500MHz AMD Geode processor. This affects performance, but has a positive impact on the design, according to Brulé. No fan is needed, and with an extended-capacity battery the Vega can run for 5.5 hours while weighing no more than 1.06 pounds. Internet access is limited to a USB WiFi adapter, but the handheld ships with a sizeable 512MB of RAM and a 30GB hard drive. This new UMPC ships from Japan for the equivalent of $1,167 US. If formally released in North America, however, its price should be substantially lower and would undercut the least expensive UMPCs available.
