That was quick. Just hours after Sony introduced its next-generation Sony Vaio P mini-laptop, the folks at PC User in Japan have ripped apart the tiny notebook to see what’s inside.

Not surprisingly, they found a motherboard, processor, wireless components, and solid state disk. But in order to fit everything into the Vaio P’s Lilliputian shell, Sony went with an unusual connector for the SSD, which means upgrading the storage is going to be rough.

On the bright side, there’s a Mini PCI Express slot that’s used for a 3G module or TV tuner. Theoretically you could probably add your own components here if you don’t want to purchase the Sony Vaio P with these options pre-configured.

  1. I find these devices to be somewhat compelling… At about $350-$400. Too bad the Sony tax is so high on the low end models.

  2. Watch out Sony doesn’t cripple it with firmware upates if it can be used for something they [Sony] doesn’t like.
