What UMPC should I get?

Hi;

I am interested in buying either of these 2 UMPCs. I just wanna know which one is worth buying and if I should just use Vista or 7.

Personally I like the Vaio's design more, though performance is always the winner. I am leaning towards Windows 7 as I want to run modern programs, though I like Vista's nostalgic aurora colors on it's control panel and desktop background.

Which is the better deal? I want a small handheld UMPC running a legacy OS that can do all the modern tasks I need. Other folk's opinions could help me decide. I might upragde it too 8.1 or a Linux distro(might dual-boot instead), once Chrome drops support for 7. It just sucks because time flies... and being so young, I never treasured these beautiful legacy OSes and I wish I did.

Thanks. :)
