New Sony Vaio gets PS3 remote play

Sony have unleashed the latest version of the Viao, and its the ultralightweight and  incredibly dinky Vaio P. The model itself comes with some fantastic new spec’s and features such as even though the system still has the central tracking point it also has touchpad and mouse controls to help you on your way to techie Utopia. Here are said specifications but we’ll talk more about some of the Vaio P’s cool new addition’s after you have let all this permeate your noodle:

And so on to the good stuff, The new Vaio P will still come with a  standard Silverthorne processor and it’s good to know that earmarked for we Sony users here in the UK and also in Europe we are also reported to be getting 2 USB ports, 2Gb of RAM with 54GB SSD and Windows 7 Premium. As we sid it is to have the Silverthorne processor but it is noted that for the EU and the UK we are looking at having the 1.86GHz Intel Z540 Atom installed. (yum!yum!)

Battery life is expected to be the standard 5 hours but if you run your system on the extended battery pack then you can at least, expect to double that to a whopping 10 juicy hours of non-stop Vaio P action. The built in GPS and digital compass all seem fine and to have their practical uses but we were impressed with the Accelerometer that enables the user to merely ‘shake’ the Vaio P gently to flick through articles and documents so that you can run through websites and browsers until you come to your favourite places such as your beloved GamesMediaPro. Prices are, as yet, unavailable for the UK and Europe however the June release date means that they are not far off in being in the public domain.
