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 actions 245 x 120 x 19.8mm. Picture those dimensions in your mind and you'll visualise a wide, thin notebook, which is precisely what the Vaio P is.

Its wide arrangement allows for a large keyboard that is extremely comfy to use, and a wide format screen which might only calculate 8-inches across slanting 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 thoughts. And there are other things to draw the attention, like a webcam, GPS, 3G support via a SIM and Draft-N wireless support.

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.
