Only a notebook computer that looks like this could have been released in partnership with a surf and snowboarding apparel brand.
Sony Australia has teamed up with Billabong to release a special edition of the Vaio W with a dripping paint pattern titled "Imperial Lime." It doesn't look very regal.
Insisting on referring to this 10-inch machine as a "small laptop" rather than a netbook, Sony Insider has some of the details on this limited edition machine:
- 10.1-inch LED backlit widescreen display (1,366 x 768 resolution)
- Windows 7 Starter OS
- Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor
- 1GB of RAM
- 250GB hard drive
- Built-in webcam
- Connectivity: Two USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet
Sony is set to unleash the Billabong VAIO W in Australia in June for $749 AUD ($623 USD). Compare that to the regular $449.99 USD price.
Seems like a bit too much of a price hike for a machine with some really basic specs and a design that looks like it was made by a kindergartner.
