Sony officially entered the netbook market with the Vaio W

When Sony released it’s Vaio P mini-laptop, we know that it shouldn’t fit in the netbook category. Well, they just released the Vaio W which looks like a netbook now. It’s a bit late though.


The Vaio W has the same old specs as you see with on other netbooks:

  • Intel Atom 1.6GHz
  • 10.1” inch display
  • 160GB HDD with Windows XP
  • 1GB RAM
  • Bluetooth, WiFi b/g/n
  • 2 USB ports, webcam, memory stick/SD card reader

What’s hot?

Well this piece of netbook has a maximum resolution 1368x768 which is really nice for its size. It also comes with a software to interface (stream content) wirelessly with other DLNA devices like your PC or PS3.

What’s not?

The chiclet keyboard is only 86% the size of a normal one. Other netbooks’ keyboards are at the 92% to 96% range. It’s 3-cell battery life is fairly average at 3 hours but you have the option to use a 6-cell battery.

The Vaio W will be available by mid-August with a sweet price tag of $499 which is not too expensive for a Sony product. It comes in berry pink, sugar white and cocoa brown.
