Problem with UMPC's is they are much too expensive for what they offer, you could get a DR1000S and a netbook for the price of one of those.
Well...there's something similar being sold, called the Always Innovating Touch Book. It comes apart, and has batteries in both halves. One half is a tablet, one half is a keyboard. So you can use just the screen as a tablet, or put it together and you have a netbook.
The specs aren't half bad, and the price with keyboard is US $399. It's a serious contender for me right now, but I'm holding off til afte the first of the year when I'll have money to make a final decision.
