vaio w brown

The Sony Vaio Mini W is now available for pre-order in the US from Amazon. The retailer is listing the brown and pink models of the netbook for $499.99 each. The white model is described as “not in stock,” which is funny since none of these netbooks are actually in stock yet. There’s no word on the ship date, but Amazon promises to ship the netboook “when it arrives.”

The Sony Vaio Mini W includes a 2.5 hour battery, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, and a 10 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. A 6 cell battery option is expected to be available soon, but there’s no sign of that model on Amazon yet. It’s the first netbook-style device from Sony, although the company prefers to call it an “internet book” to set it apart from netbooks from competitors. But it’s still basically a netbook, albeit one with a high resolution display.
