Last week Sony introduced an updated version of its Vaio W netbook line. The new Vaio W Eco Edition will feature Intel Atom N450 processors, GMA 3150 graphics, and eco-friendly features including a plastic case made partially from recycled CDs. This week, a new Sony netbook hit the FCC web site. It’s not clear whether this is the same model or something new.

The FCC documents describe a netbook with a 10.1 inch display and a 1.66GHz Intel Atom Pineview N450 processor. The laptop has a 4400mAh battery and 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth. It will be available with 1GB to 2GB of memory and a 250GB or 320GB hard drive.

While there are no real pictures of the laptop, the drawing above shows that the battery seems to take up more space than the batteries on previous Sony Vaio W models. So it’s possible that the battery on this netbook won’t jut out as much as the 6 cell battery on existing Sony Vaio W laptops. The pictures I’ve seen of the Sony Vaio W seem to suggest that the battery on that model will stick out quite a bit from the bottom.

Of course, this image is two dimensional, so it’s kind of hard to glean anything from it.

  1. if you look at the image closely it looks like there might be an hdmi out on the right side also, maybe an hd option?
