Vaio W: Sony makes a proper netbook

After the pocket-sized Sony Vaio P which they didn’t want to call a netbook, Sony is finally coming out with a proper netbook — the Vaio W.

The specs are pretty standard too — Intel Atom N280 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0 and a nice 10.1 inch screen with 1366×768 resolution. It’s gonna be slightly lighter at 2.62lbs (I think it’s going to have a similar form factor as the HP Mini 110).

    Sony stands for quality and durability,That’s why most of their products are beyond the reach of the “masa”.My Sony MHC GR 7 has been rocking my ears for 12 years now…

    I think I saw one in V-mall, it was priced at 43,000…. might as well check since I’d be going there later.

  17. Jay says:

    43,000pesos?, $499 is more or less 25,000pesos..
    sa sony style HK website ganun din, sana nman pagdating sa pilipinas e konti lang ang itaas.
