Sony Electronics is just one of a wave of consumer electronics and computer manufacturers getting in on the netbook craze. Netbooks are basically mini notebook computers designed primarily for more basic tasks such as browsing the Internet, checking one emails or watch videos from Web sites like YouTube. Sony’s latest entry in this product category is its new VAIO W Series, retailing for around $500.
The Sony VAIO W Series is designed to be used as a secondary computer around the home. It is available in three body colors, including pink, white and brown, and sports a high resolution, 1366 x 768 LED display which Sony says will let one view two full Web pages with needing to scroll side-to-side.
Sony has built this particular netbook to be typical of those types of products in this genre. It sports an Intel 1.66Ghz processor, 1GB of internal RAM memory and a 160GB hard drive. It has as well a number of wireless technologies built in, including Bluetooth and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi so you can connect to your favorite wireless network for your Web browsing needs.
