For that money I'd get a Macbook Pro and install windows on it.
lolSorry, don't have a comment on the article yet; just looked at the scores.
WTF? Sony is now issuing Shrek themed laptops. Those P Series were already a hard sell, but who now will buy these things?
@Digital Fury: wemen.
@Digital Fury - And colour-blind people (speaking as someone who's colour-blind). And people who like their over-priced netbooks, a vomit shade of green (a small market I must admit).
Like it. Want one.But the price is way too high .....
Am pretty sure the market for net books were for those on a budget and just wanting to access the internet. So what an earth is going on here. To be honest this is one area Sony should have left to Asus. At hat price I could buy a hard core Laptop with more capabilities, however I do acknowledge that the Sony Net book is different to a laptop - but you understand.
Aside from it being hideous and slow... I have had it confirmed today from someone in Sony support and the head of customer services that all P series Vaio have a flaw in the screen which allows dust to find its way behind the screen. I was shocked they actually admitted it to be honest. Yet another reason to steer clear of this.
Article is a little harsh to be honest! The P series is the only truly portable netbook (i mean really portable) without having to resort to a tablet or UMPC. Yes its expensive but it is also unique. What are the alternatives and if they are any if you spec them up to this level guarantee the cost will be the same...
I like that green... yum mushy peas... wait that is a bad thing...
No optical drive then? (And the other shortcomings aside - sod you all cos I love the orange!)
@darkspark88 Are you serious? Comparing a full featured netbook with a performance notebook? Totally different products.@goldenguy How would you fit an optical drive in it? At this level all it needs is the card reader.My opinion: a little cheaper it might be perfect, but depending on how solid and durable it is it might just be the perfect netbook. Not knowing the other colours this green looks like something you would buy for a child, though...So stick a black one inside a leather pouch and it will look sweet in the next board of directors meeting.
Ooops... didn't see how pathetic the autonomy is...
@darkspark88 Can you install Windows on a Mac? P.S. Im about new to this :)
@xmeiro:"Ooops... didn't see how pathetic the autonomy is..." I assume you mean 'anatomy', or are you one of those laptopists who are against laptop independence? :)@Rachel Ingram:Yes, you can, especially now that the underlying hardware is virtually identical to that of a PC. There's loads of info about the various ways of running Windows on Apple systems out on the net, a quick Google search should provide in-depth reading on this topic.
Wer can I get one in green?
