The first Sony VAIO PC arrived in 1996. Sony’s PCV-90 combined a 166MHz processor with 16MB of RAM, a 2.1GB HDD, and a 28.8-kbps modem. It shipped with a 3D graphical interface on top of Windows 95, aiming to entice novice computer users.
The slim, black carbon fiber body of the Sony Vaio Z is essentially unchanged from the 2011 version of the system, and my aesthetic reaction remains largely the same. The matte-black finish and slatelike chassis look and feel very high-end, although all the various joints and seams stand in contrast to Apple's unibody construction.
The Sony Vaio P certainly is small at just 9.7 x 4.7 x 0.8-inches, and 1.3 pounds, and packs a very high resolution display. But when compared to normal netbooks the Vaio P is rather expensive at $799 and up, but interestingly it is still $100 cheaper than the original price of the first Vaio P.
