Pre-order the Sony notanetbook Vaio P in the UK today

sony vaio p.jpgSony Vaio’s newest member – you know, the netbook that’s not quite a netbook, otherwise known as the Sony Vaio P series is available for pre-order in the UK (huzzah).

Susi gets hands on with it here – you can do the same by heading over to the Sony Vaio store. As we know, its starting price is £849 – the subject of much speculation over its netbook status – but if you want it to come with all the trimmings expect that £849 to move even further away from netbook territory to a cool £1,370. Those trimmings include a 128GB SSD (as opposed to a 60GB HDD), as well as 3G (not available on the basic model) and built-in GPS and extended battery life of up to 8 hours and 25 minutes, instead of 2 hours 45 minutes.

If you’re planning on a trip to the States any time soon, I’d recommend holding out on making the purchase till you’re on American soil – it retails for £233 cheaper than it does over here.

So, the question remains – would you spend that much on what is in theory a netbook? Pre-order here.

One thought on “Pre-order the Sony notanetbook Vaio P in the UK today

  • Hmm, some things need clarifying here:
    Does the UK spec version have GPS? This is not mentioned on Sony’s UK site, so I assume not.
    The US spec doesn’t have the 1.6Ghz processor option, or 128gb SSD. The US model’s 3G appears to be locked to Verizon too.
    The highest spec here also includes an extended life battery.

    Need to bear all that in mind when comparing prices.
