Sony Vaio W netbook: Protruding 6-cell battery & access panel in pictures

July 8, 2009 at 9:52 pm


Sony Vaio W netbookSony announced its first proper netbook yesterday, the 10.1-inch Vaio W, which has a high-resolution display, chiclet keyboard and is powered by a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU. We can’t help thinking that Sony would have had a best seller on its hands if the battery life was a bit better.

Sony has included a standard 3-cell (2100mAh) battery that is good for just 160 minutes of battery life. The good news is that an optional 6-cell (5200mAh) battery will also be available that should double this time. Some new pictures from ITMedia show just how much this higher capacity battery will stick out, unfortunately it does so quite a bit.

Other pictures show the access panel on the bottom of the Vaio W netbook. This panel gives easy access to the HDD, but to access the RAM you have to remove the extra screws around the battery and lift the keyboard up.

In related news, Sony has added a couple of promotional videos on the Sony Vaio W netbook. One features a conversation with the engineers behind the netbook and another video has a conversation with a designer. You can check out these videos below.

    I just purchased my first laptop. The Sony W netook. Only concern is, the battery seems to die within an hour. Is that normal?

    How long should the life be at full charge, not connected to the web and connected to the web?

    Are they now selling a six cell battery I just read about? How much life out of that one?

    Thanks,

    It really depends on what u using it for, i use mine at college and, i was playing with all the energy saving things and i got this results:

    screen bright minimum and volume off, with word working to take notes, and messenger online, without any peripehals connected, and the bluetooth turned off, i made it last long up to 34 hours.

    Then i set up my hard disc to stop spinning after 3 mins of inactivity, and my screen to turn off at 1 min of inactivity, turned off the wirless and bluetooth, set up the screen bright at the minimal setting, (still can see my screen very well) turned off the speakers.

    only ran it with Word to take my class notes, and set up the computer so when i close down the screen it will suspend, and this way it lasted long ALL COLLEGE DAY LONG (from 9 am to 5 pm) and the netbook stayed with a fresh cool temperature all day long, eventualy spinning its fan at minimum and mostly never.

    i always use it on a desktop, never on my legs or it will heat up and the fan will kill my battery. (be wise how u use it)

    i been using it like that for one week now (just bought it and I LOVE IT)

    besides that i customize it with a windows skin program so it looks awesome, it lasts long 10 tons of time, and hey man….its a vaio, it wont burn down like an acer or a bloody Hewlett packard >.<

    i only turn on the internet WHEN I NEED IT. and i use the netbook for what it was intended for, so in resume, knowing how to use it, and keeping it cool. humm the batterie lasted long 5 hours or so…(real time of computer working, the suspend times and the time between classes doesnt count, even when it lasted the whole day long.)

    so be happy be nice, dont heat up your comp, and if u want to run games n stuff, i suggest you get another kind of laptop bro :P

    peace n good luck!

    In such a siuation you might fel nervous, anxious, edgy but there is no comparison with an actual ppanic disorder.

    enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why
    throw away your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    Hola!! estuve navegando asi como unas 2 horas en las webs hoy y no vi nada tan espectacular como tu
    texto. Me ha encantado mucho el modo que gastas al
    escribir imagino que es lo que me ha llegado.

    En mi humilde opinion, si todos los propietarios
    de webs crearan este tipo de textos, Internet seria mucho mas practico.

    Espero que te mantengas asi y continue leyendo textos de la fuerza que tiene este.
