Back in May 2006 we reviewed the Samsung Q1, which was the first example of a new category of portable computer — the Ultra-Mobile PC, or UMPC. The idea behind the UMPC is to offer a highly portable small-format tablet computer that runs a full-blown Windows operating system. UMPCs have been produced by the likes of ASUS, Gigabyte and Medion, but Samsung has led the field to date, and its latest offering is the Q1 Ultra. The original Q1 took a lot of criticism for being, among other things, overpriced, underpowered, short on battery life, under-connected and too heavy. So has the Q1 Ultra, which at £680 (ex. VAT) costs the same as its predecessor, got it right this time around?
