The Sony VAIO P netbook might not be the cheapest on the market, but UK customers will be able to take some solace in the fact that they’ll be getting a VAIO P with better specs than our friends across the pond.
Sony’s claiming its first netbook will fit in every pocket, but a comparison of spec sheets on the US and UK Sony Style shops seems to suggest that not every P will fit the same chip: it looks like British buyers will get the full Intel Atom 1.6GHz treatment, while US customers are stuck with the stock 1.3GHZ chip.
Pity the Aussies even more though: they’re lumped with a 60GB mechanical hard drive instead of the option for solid state, and they’re not even getting 3G or GPS on theirs.
We’re not quite sure where the logic in this comes from, but at any rate, it makes a change from the usual same-specs-but-costs-the-same-in-pounds-as-in-dollars exchange rate that seems to dictate most gadget pricing.
