I tried one and the display is a disaster. The resolution is something like 1600x600. The owner was considering to return it because "she can't see a thing" in that screen, and I have to agree. Good thing adding XP though, Vista was slow as hell in that netbook, no matter what Sony wants to call it.

And they could use a chainsaw to do a price cut, like, U$S 500, maybe...?

It's just for show to propell Sony's branding. Netbooks even at $500 are getting dicey with the price point at about $375. Anyone buying this is just Sony happy.

[citation][nom]tipoo[/nom]The Vaio P is perhaps the best looking netbook out there, but that simply doesnt justify the price.[/citation]

they always seemed to me to be the apple of windows, ever take a look at their desktops? not a standard-looking one among them, and they actually out-apple apple, their most expensive system having just a core2quad where you'd at least get dual Nehalem xeon quad-cores :p

Nothing wrong with elite products.

What's wrong is the aspect ratio of that thing. Yes, it does make it quite portable, but vertical workspace has been very underestimated lately.

1 word: ripoff

Looks like a netbook, have the specs of a netbook, but is priced twice as the normal netbooks, because it is a "ultra portable" ???(netbook definition, anyone?)

a stylish look doesn't justify the $400 premium
gimme a break...
