Default Engadget Reviews the Updated Sony VAIO P

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/10/sony-vaio-p-series-review/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/10/...-series-review/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"In a day of $300 netbooks and $500 tablets, it sure is mystifying to see Sony still pushing a secondary, $700+ Atom-powered device. That's right, Sony hasn't given up on its 8-inch VAIO P Series, and has updated the 1.3-pound mini-laptop with a slightly different design, a faster Atom Z560 processor, touchpad, and last but not least, an accelerometer that lets you tilt the machine to the navigate the web. It's got some pretty cool tricks, that's for sure, and considering that our main complaints about the first generation included performance and desktop navigation we're certainty taken with this next iteration."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1273529582.usr10.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></em></p><p>I agree, just too much of a premium. &nbsp;If I were in the market for a new netbook when these first came out, I might have paid a bit of a premium. &nbsp;But now, I don't think there will be much room for a premium netbook, much the less a super premium model as low-priced tablets start to hit the market. &nbsp;An extra inch or two of screen wouldn't hurt either.</p>
