Sony and Billabong Pair Up

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

In an unusual pairing, Sony teamed up with Billabong to welcome the Summer with the new “Boardshort” Vaio.

Officially, it is a Vaio W Series Imperial Lime Edition, with colors and graphics from Billabong’s 2010 collection. Here are the specs:

  • 10.1 HD LED backlit display
  • 250GB hard drive
  • Built-in Motion Eye camera and microphone with face-tracking technology
  • Large Capacity Lithium-ion Battery offers up to 7 hours use on a single charge
  • Multimedia Card Reader: Memory Stick Duo and SD memory card slots
  • Intel Atom N470 Processor
  • Windows 7 Starter Edition
  • LAN/802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi/Bluetooth A2DP
  • 1GB onboard RAM
  • 2USB ports

For a starting price of $500 this is a pretty decent little netbook, or as they call it a mini-pc. I personally prefer the $300 variety, but this is a Sony, and my full-sized Vaio is pretty solid. It’s currently available for pre-order at Sony Style.
