Sony's Billabong Edition Netbook Packs One Stylish Lid
Sony's Australian branch has just released what's probably the most vivid VAIO ever, a limited edition Billabong VAIO W. It will ship in Australia next month for AU$749, and the highlight feature is obviously the "Imperial Lime" lid, which is aimed at surfers, tweens and anyone tired of the "typical." It also features "Billabong content, including images and video from a new TV series featuring a selection of Billabong’s key surfing athletes."
The machine itself is a netbook, with an Intel Atom N470 processor, Windows 7 Starter, 2GB of RAM, a 10.1" LED screen, 1366x768 resolution, Ethernet, USB 2.0 (x2), and a built-in webcam. It's pricey for a netbook, but who can argue with the eye-catching lid?
