Yeah, of course. Business Pro's want to have a 20" behemoth in a bag the size of a luggage compartment itself.
For most business people out there, I tend to agree that a notebook in the 12 - 15" range is ideal, because it's not heavy enough for plane travelling, and gives you the possibility of "setting up your desktop anywhere you want".
UMPCs in general are targeted towards a niche market of people that, more than having the possibility to have an available computer powerful enough to get everyday's tasks done, really need or want to do things on the go (even inside a taxi, bus, cab, walking by the street).
You can't feel comfortable getting a 14" laptop out of a bag while walking by or while you were jogging around the park and suddenly wanted to sit down on a park's bench to browse the net. With something like the EEE or smaller, it's possible and burden-free.

Business pros are using ThinkPad T and X series. Sometimes Dell.
