Sony Vaio P Lifestyle PC not a netbook has Linux

Sony has release the Sony Vaio P series netbook Lifestyle PC which offers a beautiful and sleek pocketable computer with a full size keyboard. The netbook Lifestyle PC (darn!) has an Intel 1.33Ghz processor under it’s hood. It’s preinstalled with Windows Vista but gives you the option to use an Instant On version of Linux. The instant on Linux allows you to use it without having to wait more than 20 seconds at a touch of a button.

Other great things under it’s hood are 60GB hard disk with the option to order a 128GB solid state disk storage, 2GB RAM memory, Memory Stick Pro slot and also a SD/MMC card slot, audio, webcam, internal microphone, USB ports, wifi 802.11 b/g/n, wireless broadband, bluetooth with A2DP stereo, a full size keyboard and a 1600 x 768 8-inch LED display (great for surfing). And since you’d be using this gadget a lot for surfing, it comes with a 4-hour standard battery with option to put in an 8-hour version. Now do you think you’d need anything else?

All these in a pocketable 1.4 pound 9.65″ x 0.78″ x 4.72″ body priced at about US$ 1,000.

It’s Vaio, not Viao. I would like to know more about the Linux option!

Hi James, Thanks. The Linux option is similar to the one found on a PS3 and lets you browse the Internet without booting to Vista

that’s ace, once you return the OEM vista basic for the $199 refund, it becomes quite thrifty 😉
