According to Walter Mossberger, who reviewed Sony's newest mini notebook, the VAIO P, for the Wall Street Journal, the device disappoints on performance.
"Vaio P is mainly undone because it comes with Vista Home Premium, the edition of Windows that is sluggish and a memory hog. . . And the Vista problem is made worse by the processor inside the machine, which is an especially slow version of the Intel Atom chip often used in netbooks.. . .[In tests], programs launched painfully slowly, delays were common and start-up and reboot times were glacial. . .Video playback was choppy. . ."
But the posters SONY has been using to announce the launch in Japan are eye-catching and effective.
Who wouldn't want a sexy little computer you can carry around in your back pocket?
