The recently announced Sony Vaio W netbook is now available to pre-order on both the Amazon UK and Amazon.com sites. Amazon UK has all three colours up for pre-order (white, brown and pink) for £430. No estimated release date is given, although Sony already mentioned that it expects the Vaio W (W11S1E) to hit UK retail in the middle of August.
The Vaio W (W111XX) is also up for pre-order in the US through Amazon.com for $499.99. Only the brown and pink models seem to be up for pre-order. There’s no release date here either, but is expected to arrive next month too.
The Sony Vaio W is the first proper netbook from the company and comes with a 1366 x 768 resolution 10-inch display, chiclet keyboard and is powered by a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU. It ships with a 3-cell battery as standard which should last for 2.5 hours according to the company.
