Powerful and pint-sized, the Sony VAIO VGN-UX490N keeps up with fast-paced professionals and exudes ample wow-factor. Offering full-size PC performance in an ultra-portable micro PC package, the pocket-sized computer features a 4.5-inch screen, a biometric fingerprint sensor for password protection and two built-in cameras -- a 1.3-megapixel lens in the back for snapshots and a lower-powered one in the front for videoconferencing.

Weighing roughly a pound, the grab-and-go laptop sports a hefty 48 gigabytes of SSD storage, a speedy Intel Core 2 Solo processor. The versatile touch screen and hidden keyboard design makes it perfect for toting to meetings and globetrotting.
