Both devices are equipped with WSVGA (1,024?600) LCD displays. The VGN-UX90PS is powered by an Intel Core Solo U1400 (1.2GHz) processor and VGN-UX90S uses a Core Solo U1300 (1.06GHz). Owners are also able to customize their devices by ordering a version Celeron M 423(1.06MHz) version of both models. The installed memory is 512MB. Moreover, a Blue tooth head set and an English Japanese/keyboard can be selected.

The estimated retail price for the devices is 209,800 Yen ($1,803). For additional information read Sony's press release (Japanese).
