It looks like a laptop for Silicon Valley Barbie, but Sharp's Zaurus SL-C760 is no toy, according to a review published at Brighthand. While Sharp does not market the device in the U.S., Americans can buy one for approximately $750 from target=”_new”>Dynamism, theKompany or another company specializing in technology imports. Dynamism and theKompany also do some internationalization/translation work on the products they import.
