Great laptop, but not for everybody
 
I was one of the first people to buy one of these and have been using it since the beginning of February. (Bought the VGN-P530H) This is my main computing device that I use 12-16 hours a day and I love it, but it is not for everybody.I travel a lot, nearly all of it internationally, and often in economy. This is a laptop that you can use on the smallest of tray tables, even with the seat in front of you fully reclined. I bought the leather pouch accessory and often carry the lapt...

Ultra-portable Netbook Ever.
 
I have used few other laptops and desktops. But this was my first try with "netbook." This products has a great features, style, and size and that's one of the reason I bought this netbook. There are some pros and cons about this and I'll let you know to help you on purchasing this item.pros:1. The Size: size of this product is just amazing. There are few other netbooks came out but this is the smallest. Very handy and portable. I mean who's gonna beat the size of 9.65" ...

Great Looking Portable Vaio
 
Sony did a great job in designing the Vaio P, sure, it won't fit in your pocket, but at a mere 1.5lbs (a bit less), it is so portable. It functions pretty well for what it's suppose to be, which is a NetBook (sorry Sony). ...so keep that in mind, do not buy this if what you really need is a laptop, cause you can get laptops that perform way better than the Vaio P at half its cost. I believe that the unit is representing what a NetBook should be, and hopefully setting a benchmark for future Ne...

Tiny, feather-light and beautiful
 
I am an early adopter and gadget freak. I took a long time researching options before deciding on the Sony VAIO VGN-P530H/W Lifestyle PC (1.33 GHz Intel Processor, 2 GB RAM, 60 GB Hard Drive with G-Sensor, Vista Basic) White. I could not be more happy with the purchase.My ExpectationsDo not expect a gaming PC if you purchase the Lifestyle PC. It is slow. The text is very small. Vista sucks, but it really sucks on an ATOM CPU. So, there are compromises.What you...

great computer if portability matters
 
I've always been a fan of ultraportable computers, and I've owned a few, which include a Motion LS800 tablet, Raon Everun, Vaio TX, Vaio TZ, and an Asus 1000H. So, my review is based upon my experience with those machines. The Vaio P, in my opinion, is the ideal combination of portability and functionality, if typing is an integral part of your computing needs. I bought 2 of them (one for me, one for the wife) as soon as they were announced on the Sony website, and have been using it for abou...

A review of the specs only
 
Disclaimer: This is just a commentary on the published info and specs, not a review of the actual device. My comments are for Sony folks only; I don't intend this for public posting.This is a very impressive device and hats off to Sony for using the Intel Atom in an innovative way like this. I need a laptop for travel and would really appreciate something smaller and lighter than what I use now. I need to be able to run all the MS Office apps on the go and hook up to a projector. The only disapp...

Horribly slow...real bummer
 
This is such a nicely made laptop. Awesome style, beautiful design..not a bad price considering Sony Vaio's past history. The text is going to be small and it's something you will have to deal with if you want the portability.You can increase the font size but I didn't like how it distorted some of the graphics. Keyboard is decent as well for the size. It does tend to run really hot so I doubt there is any cooling system in this tiny little package.The pointer mouse also takes some getting used ...

Great netbook, just don't expect it to be a powerhouse laptop
 
Like the title of my review says, if you're expecting a netbook to play 1080p videos while doing Adobe Photoshop while playing Crysis, then this is not a machine for you.Screen is really sharp and the fonts seem too tiny at first (8" screen coupled with 1600x768 resolution), but if you adjust your font size dpi to 120dpi or higher, it's very manageable. After a while of using the Vaio, all other notebook screens look so coarse.Portability, excellent keyboard, and excellen...
