Sony Vaio PIt looks like Sony has finally cottoned onto the fact that Vista just doesn’t offer the same kind of performance on an ultraportable device compared to XP. The new Vaio VGN-P50 will be sold with Windows XP SP3 and will come with a 1.33GHz Z520 Atom CPU as standard. Expect to see the same 8 inch (1600×768) screen, 1GB of RAM and an 80GB HDD. Wi-Fi 802.11B/G/N, Bluetooth 2.1 are all supported, as well as DoCoMo’s WAN network.

Sony also has a number of hardware options for this SKU including the latest 2.0GHz Z550 Atom CPU as well as the option of a 256GB SSD. A number of snazzy colours are also being offered including Garnet Red, Crystal White, and Peridot Green, and Pyrite Gold. Some of these colours have a laser pattern etched into the lid. The new Vaio P will be offered in Japan only (for now) from June 6th.
