From its look & feel alone, the Sony Vaio P netbook pretends to be more than just a netbook, leaning more towards the high-end side of the "Mobile Internet Device" spectrum. Unfortunately to the average customer, this is also evident when looking at its list price (999 eur). Once that shock is digested, the happy sony customer can choose between four different case colors: "ebony black", "ivory white", "volcano red" and "forest green" all have glossy surfaces prone to fingerprint dirtying. Technical features are as follows: eight-inch back-lit wide-screen LCD (1600 x 768 pixels); Intel Atom processor running at 1.33GHz, supported by 2GB RAM; data is stored on a 60GB harddisk; 802.11 a/b/g/n wifi, 3G/UMTS/HSDPA wireless broadband and of course bluetooth ensure maximum connectivity everywhere. Sony's "Xross Media Bar" with own buttons on the lower edge of the keyboard enables audio/video playback without need to start Windows, which makes it a nice power-saving playback device. Of course a webcam is included too, but a really outstanding gadget of the Vaio P is its built-in GPS, making it a full-value navigation device. At dimensions of only 120 x 245 x 19.8mm it weighs in at just 638 grams - this with a battery sufficient for 4 hours of mobile fun (according to sony at least). If you can spare the money and want a rolls-royce of netbooks, this is your best choice I'd say. Available in europe since february 09 I think..
