Sony Vaio P series netbook - only for the wealthy!

Sony have joined the 'netbook' market with their new Vaio P series announced at CES this week.

A nice looking machine but we've just discovered that the UK version of Sony's baby Vaio will be £849 with VAT for the base 1.33GHz Atom and 60GB HDD spec P11Z/Q.

If you want SSD then it'll be a staggering £969 after tax. And that's just for the P19WN/Q Vaio with the same 1.33GHz Atom Z520 processor and a 60GB SSD. If you want to move up to the premium P19VN/Q with a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 inside and a larger 128GB SSD, you'll have to fork out an incredible £1,368.99, with the VAT.

Many loyal 'Sony-ites' will be used to paying a premium for Sony products, but close to a grand for a 1.3GHz Atom netbook and £400 more to move up to a processor that's now standard on virtually every other £300 netbook - too expensive surely!?

Someone has already had a look inside one of these things!
