We all know that the Vaio netbooks are always the trendsetters when it comes to style most especially these days when PC consumers consider the design of their netbooks. They never fail to entice the people as recently; they have unveiled their new design which is the Sony Billabong Edition Vaio W Netbook. Yes, Sony has collaborated with Billabong Australia to come up with their Sony Billabong edition. The Sony Billabong Vaio W’s design was co-created with Billabong, one of the well-known apparel brands for surfing and snowboarding, with their 2010 summer board in mind. The design is labeled as “Imperial Lime” which has lid that has splashes of green, black, and blue.
The mini notebook is pre-loaded with related content such as images and videos which feature Billabong products. As for the specs of the Sony Billabong edition, it resembles the company’s other netbooks. It boasts a 10.1 inch LED backlit LCD with a 1366×768 resolution panel, 250GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM onboard. The mini-laptop is also loaded with Windows 7 Starter Edition running the Aero theme. The special edition Sony Billabong Vaio W also got an Intel Atom N450 processor, Ethernet port, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, and a built-in webcam.
This special edition Billabong Vaio W mini-laptop should ship in the Land Down Under sometime in June. The netbook will cost you a hefty price of $749. It’s a bit too much of a price, though, especially that it has not undergone any changes in the specs compared to the original VAIO W.
