Apple Newton vs Samsung Q1 UMPC

Lately I’ve been pretty into Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) and was thinking about getting the Samsung Q1 until I came across the following article from cNet on the duel between the Samsung Q1 and 1997 Newton MessagePad 2000, click here for the full 10 round duel report.  Now I’m really having second thoughts albeit the latest promotion from Samsung (or PCCW Shop). $10,980 for the Q1F000 (which runs Vista Home Premium), it features Intel Pentium M Processor ULV 723(1.0GHz), 60GB harddisk and 1GB DDR2 Ram on board.  The promotion includes a 6-cells extended battery as well (extra horse power, like another 5+ hours, tempting).
