When You Really, Really Want to Upgrade a Tiny Notebook 104

Benz145 writes "The famous Sony VAIO UX UMPC may have been cancelled a few years back by Sony, but the community at Micro PC Talk won't let it die. Modder Anh has carefully removed the relatively slow 1.33Ghz Core Solo CPU and installed a much faster Intel Core 2 Duo U7700 (a process which involves reballing the entire CPU). On top of this, he managed to install an incredibly small 4-port USB hub into the unit which allowed for the further instillation of a Huawei E172 modem for 3G data/voice/SMS, a GPS receiver, and a Pinnacle HD TV receiver. All of this was done without modifying the device's tiny external case. Great high-res pictures of the motherboard with the modded hardware can be seen through the link."

Comment Komodo and WinPDB among others.. (Score 1) 144

Hi,
    I use Komodo Edit (like a lot of others here). The toolbox feature is kinda handy too, you can put commonly used commands in the toolbox and just double click them to run on the current script. Currently I've got a python script that automatically ftp's the file I'm working on to a specified directory and one that launches the current script into WinPDB which is quite simply the best debugger I've ever used. http://winpdb.org/

Cheers,
    Stuart.
