Tech Review: Sony Vaio P Series Notebook


Posted April 17, 2009 - By Eugene Morton

Sony Vaio P Series Notebook Review »

The world's lightest notebook is here and it's packed with an 8" screen, 2 GB of RAM, 128 GB of solid state memory, GPS and Wi-Fi, but will the presence of Vista and a $900 price tag pull down what could be a positive rating?

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.

What You Need To Know

  • Only 0.8 inches thick
  • 9 and a half by 4 and a half and weighs 1.4 pounds
  • Might even fit in a pants or jacket pocket
  • Comes in green, white, red and black shimmer
  • The keyboard is widely spaced and big enough to type on. The rectangular shape of the notebook was an excellent choice by Sony
  • The pointing stick (nubbin) is similar to the old IBM's and actually isn't that bad for mousing. It's tough to move around accurately, though
  • The mouse clicks are thin and at the very bottom of the device, and surprisingly not hard to use
  • The 8 inch display also looks great because of the l-e-d backlight
  • Overall, we weren't too bothered by how small it was
  • It's got 2 gigs of ram, but the Intel Atom processor is a little less powerful than most at 1.33 GigaHertz
  • Booting up takes too long
  • Browsing the web is too slow
  • Batching videos is too choppy
  • Overall, this thing is painfully slow. It needs Windows XP
  • If you need style and have lots of extra cash, this is the perfect choice
  • Everyone else should hold off


  • $900
