Sony has just announced that they are going to release a new line of Netbook, called Vaio W.
The Sony Vaio W is a 10.1-inch Netbook, with an Intel Atom N280 CPU, 1GB of RAM, Windows XP, and a 160GB hard drive–all fairly common specs for the category. But many laptops with similar specs run $299-$399, while Sony says the Vaio W “will retail for about $500.”
You know.. Sony always sells stuff higher price than others because they believed that their product quality is higher than others. the Vaio W packs in a higher-resolution screen at 1,366×768. There’s also 802.11n Wi-Fi, a separate Memory Stick slot (on top of the standard SD card slot), Bluetooth, and Sony’s typical fit and finish, which usually includes excellent keyboards and touchpads. The Vaio W is 1.3 inches thick, weighs 2.6 pounds, and will come in three colors–berry pink, sugar white, and cocoa brown.
The system is available for pre-order from Sony starting Tuesday, and should be arriving in retail stores sometime next month.
