Sony doesn't do netbooks, but if it did the Vaio P would be one. It is small and neat. It weighs just 0.6kg and it measures 245 x 120 x 19.8mm. Picture those measurements in your mind and you'll visualise a wide, thin notebook, which is precisely what the Vaio P is.
Its wide format allows for a large keyboard that is extremely comfy to use, and a wide format screen which might only measure 8-inches across diagonal corners, but which offers 1,600 x 768 pixels.
These criteria, plus the general build quality, which oozes style and pizzazz, are enough to capture the imagination. And there are other things to draw the attention, like a webcam, GPS, 3G support via a SIM and Draft-N wireless support.
There are seven different models currently available, and the least expensive of them will cost you £850. You could get two good netbooks out of that. But of course, Sony doesn't call the Vaio P a netbook, even though it runs an Intel Atom Z520 processor. OK, then.
