Sony P19WN Vaio unboxing video

We’ve looked at a number of ‘netbook’ PC’s in the past and almost all of them have one particular drawback; Small physical dimensions inevitably leads to a small screen which, while fine for casual use, can become a bit of a pain when it comes to web browsing etc.

Sony think they’ve come up with a solution though with the Sony P19WN/Q Vaio, they’ve crammed an 8" 1600×768 TFT display in to a 25 x 12 x 2cm package. The result is a beautiful looking small netbook with an amazing widescreen.

The Sony P19WN/Q Vaio

So slight and slim, you might not even know its there. About as thin as most cell phones, VAIO P series Lifestyle PC is a cinch to tote. Designed specifically for the ultra-mobile professional, this 8" miniature PC is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket. A lot of miniature PCs out there feature low resolution screens which makes for a sub-par web browsing experience. Basically, a low resolution screen means that you need to scroll side to side to view an entire web page… very annoying and time-consuming, especially when on the go.

I’ve only used the Sony P19WN/Q Vaio briefly as we only had a short-term loan of this review model but I have to say that it really is very impressive! The screen is stunning and overall it performs well. I’m expecting a retail version of the Sony P19WN/Q Vaio to arrive soon and I’ll be reviewing that as soon as I can. For now I’ll leave you with the unboxing video:
