Sony Philippines introduced their new line of Vaio laptops for Summer 2009 today. Among them is the much-anticipated Sony Vaio W
Now that’s a pretty quick local release considering that the Vaio W was only announced globally last July 7. Let’s get down to the specs, photos and price.
The official specs out of the box would be:
Intel Atom N280 1.66GHz
Intel GMA 950
10.1″ screen @ 1,366×768 pixels
MS Windows XP SP3
It comes with a standard 3-cell battery that only lasts 2.5 hours. It’s also a bit lighter at just 1.19kg and comes in white, brown and pink. Options for 6-cell could be coming later.
The suggested retail price — a whooping Php39,990 (and no, that’s not a typo). I know, that’s very far from the earlier $500 price tag we were told. The Sony Vaio W will hit store shelves by first week of August.
Update: Now I remember — the Asus N10J still holds the most expensive netbook title at Php39,999.
