Sony have announced a new version of its slim Vaio P ultra portable notebook, and it has a few new features.
Earlier this year I reviewed the Sony Vaio P ultra portable: Review of the Sony Vaio P Series Ultra Portable Notebook.
I first saw these notebooks at CES in January 2009, and then again with an updated spec at CES in January 2010. Now Sony have announced a new version that isn’t just a updated spec, it’s got new features as well.
The update and new features include a faster Atom Z560 processor, a touchpad on the sides of the screen and an accelerometer that lets you tilt the machine to the navigate the Internet.
The VAIO P11S1E has an Intel Atom Z540 1.86 GHz Processor & Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 500 with Windows 7 Home Premium, 2GB DDR2 RAM a 64GB SSD Flash Drive and comes in Orange, Pink, Green, White or Black.
Engadget have a full review including videos of the new model, so why not take a look here: http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/10/sony-vaio-p-series-review/
If I can get my hands on one I will post a full review – they are due for release in June, and yes, they are still very expensive compaired to a netbook, or even a lot of notebooks with a similar spec.
