When I was roaming the halls of CES in Las Vegas back in January I spied the Vaio P from Sony and while they wouldn’t call it a netbook, I know a netbook when I see one. The little machine was weird and had a price much higher than the typical user would spend for the performance the rig delivered.
Sony has finally announced a machine that they aren’t embarrassed to call a netbook; specifically the machine is the Sony Vaio W. Technically Sony calls it an “Internet book” but we know what Sony means.
The machine is not that attractive with its rounded and bulky looking design. Inside the chassis sits a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM and it runs Windows XP Home. The 10.1-inch screen has a 1366 x 768 screen resolution. The big rub, as with most gear from Sony, is the price, which is said to be about $629.Netbook, Sony, vaio
