Sony announces $499 Vaio W netbook

Andrew wrote about the arrival of the 99 cent netbook yesterday and today we here about the $499 netbook from Sony.

I was just looking at an announcement of the HP Mini 2140 netbook, and came across this gem:It features an 80GB solid state drive, a feature we're seeing more and more in netbooks these days, which means ultra fast start up times and quick processing of applications.
