Laptop Review: Sony Vaio P

HardwareCentral
29 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless are built in, as is a VGA webcam. SD and Memory Stick Duo/Magic Gate flash-card slots are located on the Sony's front edge. There's one USB 2.0 port on each side of the notebook, along with a headphone jack and wireless on/off switch on the left and a proprietary...

Sony VAIO P (2010, second gen)

MobileTechReview.com
30 June 2010
  • Conclusion: We said it last year and we'll say it again: the Sony Vaio P is all about the keyboard and the display. No other tiny PC offers a usable keyboard and a widescreen display that banishes side-scrolling, even at the more viewable 1280 pixel setting.
  • Pros: Unique full Windows 7 PC with a very good keyboard and widescreen display. Superb build and looks.
  • Cons: Pricey, speed is adequate but still in the netbook range.

Sony Vaio P

maximum pc
10 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Sony Vaio P is a weird device. It’s much smaller than a netbook, but much better-equipped. It has wireless broadband access from Verizon, onboard GPS, a ThinkPad-style pointing stick, and an eye-straining high-resolution screen. It’s also incredibly expensive. So who exactly is the Vaio P for?
  • Pros: Windows 7; 2GB RAM; 256GB SSD; wireless broadband and GPS; incredibly portable.
  • Cons: Incredibly expensive; too tiny to use comfortably; no touch pad.

Sony Vaio P Review

Digitaltrends
15 April 2009
  • Conclusion: We wanted dearly to love the Vaio P based on its lust-worthy form factor, which make all the other bland netbooks the market is awash in right now look like garbage. But after putting it through its paces, we just can’t possibly recommend it for anyone who hopes to do anything more than typing...
  • Pros: Unbelievably small, light; sturdy chassis; ultra high-res screen; quick-boot OS
  • Cons: Almost crippling performance; slow boot time; brief battery life; no included sleeve; uncomfortable to use in lap; price does not reflect performance

Sony Vaio P

MobileTechReview.com
25 March 2009
  • Conclusion: After years in the ultraportable market, Sony has gotten it just about right: it's all about the keyboard and the display. The Vaio P series offers the best keyboard on an ultraportable or netbook, and enough screen resolution to do serious work with no side-to-side scrolling and room for toolbars...
  • Pros: Super small and light, fantastic looks, higher specs than Netbooks., Small but not too small to use thanks to the large keyboard and high resolution display. Fantastic display: ultra-sharp, bright and vivid. Very good keyboard that beats other netbooks.
  • Cons: Improvements come at a cost and the Vaio P costs more than basic Netbooks. Fonts are tiny., High resolution is hard on the eyes, video playback performance isn't great (installing Cyberlink brings it up to decent but not great status), battery life so-so with standard battery.

Sony VAIO P Review

LAPTOP Magazine
11 January 2009
  • Summary: There's no question that the Sony VAIO P stands out from the netbook crowd. It's lightweight, compact design is simply striking, and we appreciated the wide and crisp 8-inch display and zoom controls, mobile broadband connectivity, and relatively comfortable keyboard.
