Remember the new Sony Vaio W that we spotted at the FCC site in late December? Well it’s finally up for pre-order on Amazon. It’s listed at $479 which seems a little high for a netbook, let’s take a look at the specs:

  • Processor: Intel Atom N450 1.67GHz
  • 10.1″ 1366 x 768 glossy display
  • Intel GMA 3150 graphics
  • 1GB RAM
  • 250GB HD
  • Windows 7 starter
  • 8 hour battery

The Vaio W looks like your new standard Pine trail netbook, but the big deal with this one is that the case is made from 20% recycled cd’s. And the included netbook sleeve is made from recycled bottles. Besides being a little better for the environment and having an HD display, there’s really nothing to show for the extra $100 on the price tag.

If you’re in the market for a netbook with the same specs you can easily find one for under $400, but they won’t include a carrying sleeve so tack on an extra $20.

It’s available for pre-order now and should start shipping soon.
