Last week we heard that Sony was launching a special edition Vaio W netbook with a Billabong design. Billabong is an Australian company that designs gear for surfers and skateboarders, and last I’d heard the netbook would only be available in Australia. But it turns out Sony has decided to offer the distinctive looking mini-laptop in the US as well.

The Sony Vaio W Series Billabong mini notebook is available for pre-order from the SonyStyle store for $499.99.

The netbook features a 1.83GHz Intel Atom N470 processor, a 10.1 inch 1366 x 768 pixel HD display, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, Bluetoth, 802.1b/g/n WiFi, and a 6 cell battery.

  1. Feh, who cares..this is Sony, the company that will brick what you buy with a firmware update if they don’t like what you use it for.
