Hardware, Embedded Systems "The Sony UX1XN is quite possibly one of the smallest laptops ever. Think of the smallest laptop you've ever seen, and this will be smaller. Probably. Everything about it is dinky - it's barely bigger than a thick-ish paperback book, yet it packs a full Vista-touting PC inside its diddy dimensions."

Anyone concerned with battery life shouldn't use Vista. They should have made it easy to disable SuperFetch, idle indexing, and other power-hungry performance enhancements while on battery power.

AFAIK, the battery life is bad because of the network stack not allowing the wireless card go to sleep or something like that. Not super fetch and not idle indexing. The indexing if I understand the technology correctly only indexes new things once the preliminary indexing is over.....it would be foolish to reindex the whole hard drive. Isnt Google Desktop search something like that as well? It just crawls ocassionaly and doesnt it automatically index the particular files everytime you create/modify them? I would think they meaning Microsoft and Google would have thought of that...
