Sony Vaio P series mini laptop

After much speculation Sony has finally launched its very first mini laptop, the Vaio P series, which is aimed at those looking for a fashion conscious answer to the Eee PC. However, with an £849 price tag, it's not exactly wallet friendly.

Measuring 240x110x20mm and weighing just 638g, the 8in mini laptop benefits from a 1,600x768 widescreen VAIO X-black LCD display and comes in a choice of four different colours including red, black and green.

Users have the option to either run the machine using Windows Vista or utilise the 'Instant-on' function, which uses the XMB (XrossMediaBar) system already found in the PSP and Sony's Bravia TVs, to allow quick access to the web, IM and music playback without waiting for Vista to load.

The mini-laptop also features a 128GB solid state drive and 2GB of RAM alongside, Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity and built-in GPS capability.

Available from Sony Style from February, the Sony Vaio P series mini laptop is priced at £849.
