Ultra mobile PCs (UMPCs) or "netbooks" are just the major buzz around here at the moment with numerous players in the market, of course starting with Asus launching their EEE PC. Similar small form factor models are now also available from HP, Dell, MSI, Acer, and others.

Of course, I couldn't resist ... so I went for the Acer Aspire One, in my eyes providing the best "bang for the buck" with its very nice keyboard, Windows XP, 120 GB hard drive, and great looks.

So how has this anything to do with ColorExplorer? Well, all the current 9-10" models come with 1024 x 600 displays. So the question was; does ColorExplorer fit? It certainly does! The UI was designed to use maximum screen space available but fits nicely on a 1024 pixel wide display. The 600 pixel display height does make you scroll vertically in some of the tools, but I think you will become acustomed to that with such relative small screen space anyway.
