Sony today announced the VAIO P Series Lifestyle PC, a new line of high-performance, ultra-portable notebooks that fuses Sony's eye-catching design and mobility.
At just 1.4 pounds and less than 1-inch thin, the new lifestyle PC incorporates the latest in mobile connectivity, featuring wireless built-in WAN 3G Mobile Broadband available from Verizon Wireless. While this unit can easily fit in a purse or pocket, the P Series boasts a full sized keyboard that is just over 3% smaller than that of the VAIO TT.
The full function notebook boasts a brilliant high-res widescreen (1600 x 768), integrated GPS functionality and comes loaded with Windows Vista and supports all office applications. In addition, Instant Start Mode allows lightning-quick access to music, video and the Web, launching directly into Sony?s Xross Media Bar interface (similar to the menu bar found in PlayStation3).
