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."

Vista takes something like 15GB of that tiny 32gb flash drive just for the install. And the recovery partition takes 6.5GB... That's just crazy

That's one of the downsides of Vista. It doesn't scale well with different kinds of devices. It tends to be a big pig in little clothes! Linux, et al., does a better job of scaling up and down. Almost any distro I can think of would fit in this device and only use a few gig after the install. In addition, the 1GB of ram would be more than enough, while you are pushing the limits with Vista and 1GB.
