I have to agree - I was underwhelmed as well. While there
isn't much difference between 3 lbs and 4 lbs, the subjective
look and feel between my 560 and the Sony 505 is that the 505
is much smaller. About the only thing I liked about the 560
was that it came with a PII (which is not yet available in the
ultralights made for the U.S.). Otherwise it looked like a
slightly thinner 560.

Yeah, I'm going to have to decide between a 600 or an
ultralight. I rarely use CDs, but when I need to use one on
my 560, I *really* miss it.
