Sony VAIO P with crocodile skin

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2010

The newly revamped Sony VAIO P comes in several colors, but if you love animal skin and hate PETA, then check out this limited VAIO P with black crocodile skin. It’s a Japan exclusive that includes an Intel Atom Z560 processor with an Intel US15X chipset (266MHz GPU), a 256GB SSD and a 12.5 hour extended battery.

It also features a one-touch resolution button that changes from 120dpi to 96dpi, GPS with compass, location search, an instant-on Web browser and noise canceling headphones. There’s also an accelerometer, Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi N and Windows 7.

Sony Vaio P WiMAX Edition this monthSony is all set to introduce its Vaio P WiMAX edition sometime later this month. July 30th in fact. The notbook will boast an integrated 4G mobile broadband modem to help keep you connected no matter where you are.

Pre-orders should begin from July 27th onwards, so you might as well start saving up. Holy Jesus, look at the veins in that guys hand. He’s gonna kill that Vaio P and possibly turn into the Hulk. Looks like you have four colors to choose from, including Hulk green which this dude should be packing.

Sony to release Vaio P Mark 2 in October

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on July 9th, 2009

vaiop-sbAccording to TechRadar there will be a “range” of Vaio Ps coming later this year. The original line just got a minor spec boost that makes the Vaio P as fast as normal netbooks. At this time we don’t have details on what the new machines will have as far as specs.

The news was out when a Sony rep informed TechRadar at a recent launch event for its new Vaio NW laptop and Vaio W netbook that, while overall sales of the ultraportable P Series hadn’t gone through the roof, they were still selling a significant amount to certain niche markets.

VAIO P gets Atom Z550 processor, SSD and WiMAX

vaiop-sbLooks like the Sony VAIO P is learning some new tricks. These new processor and drive upgrades will have the Tiny PC taring up benchmarks at twice the speed of the original. Most of that improved speed comes from the SSD drive, but the Atom Z550 sure doesn’t hurt.

Over in Japan they are getting a WiMAX version, which doesn’t mean crap to us since most of the US doesn’t have WiMax coverage. As usual, Japan is always beating us.

Sony Vaio P sheds Vista for XP

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on May 26th, 2009

vaiop-sbSony showed off its new Vaio P back in January at CES 2009. The little machine was nice looking, but the odd size that is long and thin left a bit to be desired in my book. The screen was freakishly narrow and wide making for some strange font sizes.

Sony has now announced that it is shedding Vista as the OS of choice for the expensive Vaio P and going with Windows XP. I think the addition of Vista to begin with was a way for Sony to justify that the P wasn’t a netbook — which it is.

Vaino: A Vaio P knock off

Vaino: A Vaio P knock offThe Sony Vaio P just came out and already it has sprouted a clone, the Vaino. At first glance, the Vaino seems to have better specs in certain areas, including a 10.2″ display, a faster Atom processor, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a 1.3 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi connectivity and a multi-format memory card reader.

But what it comes down to is that no one wants to be carrying around such an obvious knock off. It ruins your tech cred. They should have just released the device under it’s own brand. One day maybe they will learn.

Sony adds InstantON tech to VAIO P

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on February 18th, 2009

Sony VAIO PBack in January, Sony announced its VAIO P Lifestyle computer. I saw the device and played with it a bit at CES 2009 and all I can say is that the thing is tiny. I personally would much prefer a normal netbook form factor. If you think an MSI Wind or Eee is small, stay far away from the VAIO P.

Sony has added new technology to the VAIO P from Corel called InstantON. Using the new technology the computer can be started in seconds without having to boot into Windows. Obviously, you won’t have access to all of your programs when using InstantON, but if you are in a hurry it might be just the thing you need.


Sony VAIO P now available for pre-order

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2009

Sony Vaio P details: 1.4-pound, super widescreen NetbookIf you’ve been drooling over the 1.5 pound, 8″ VAIO P and want it to be your next netbook, Sony has started taking pre-orders. Like Wimpy from Popeye, who will gladly pay you next week if you buy him a hamburger, Sony is ready to take your money in exchange for the laptop in February.

It starts at $899 and can cost up to $1,499 depending on what you want. You can choose from a color palette of five hues. Me? I’ll pass. Strikes me as kinda girlly and clutch purse like. Some like the long and thin form factor though and it does feature a crazy high resolution on it’s tiny screen. It also sports an instant-boot OS that gives you access to the Internet and your pictures, music and other stuff.
