The VAIO P series 8″ netbooks are lightweight and ultra-portable, equipped with 2 GB DDR2 533MHz RAM and up to a 256 GB solid state drive. These netbooks are so small in size that they could fit inside a back pocket. Users with digital Sony cameras will enjoy the HG Duo MagicGate multimedia memory stick as well as the SD One Secure Digital media slot. Comes with noise-canceling headphones, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and 4-cell 2500 mAh battery pack that has been tested in our lab to deliver up to 4 hours and 20 minutes of battery life.

  • Cons
