Sony’s (don’t call it a netbook) Vaio P comes in a number of different CPU and HDD configurations. CPU options for the ‘P’ series range from the 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 to the 1.86GHz Z540, whilst storage options include a 60GB hard-drive or 64GB/128GB SSD (solid-state drive). Pocketables has arduously collected all of the CrystalMark benchmark data across all of the possible permutations and presented a full table of the results. Interestingly, the biggest difference in the results does not come from CPU speed but from the type of storage option chosen (HDD v SDD). Faster CPUs give higher ALU/FLU numbers but judging from the results this is not as significant as the difference between HDD vs SDD.
