At night, take the VAIO W-series with you to your room.  Before you go to bed there’s often something you want to check – for instance the weather for the next day.  And the built-in webcam and microphone makes it easy for you to video chat anywhere in the house.  It’s convenient that you can video chat from the comfort of your bed, bean bag or wherever you happen to be and not glued to your desk.

So make your summer a dazzling experience with the new VAIO Mini W-series.  It includes features such as Intel® Atom™ Processor N280, 160GB hard disk drive, 1GB RAM and Windows XP.  While the range will be available in the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain and Russia from mid August, it is also available online for pre-order from Sony Style Store (www.sonystyle.eu).
