Sony Vaio Y series (VPCYB2M1E)
Netbooks may have lost some of their sheen given the rise of tablets, but that hasn't stopped Sony throwing a new mini laptop into the ring, the Vaio VPCYB2M1E. This 11.6-inch cutie is certainly portable and it packs decent specs by netbook standards. At £430, it's not cheap, though.
The Y series is Sony's elite netbook, spitting on the lower-end Vaio M series VPCM13M1E. We're not too keen on the M series refresh this year, but the Y series promises to be a much stronger performer, pushing the boundaries of what can be described as a netbook.
The 11.6-inch screen makes it a very small little chap, measuring only 290mm wide. This means it's small enough to fit into even the most modest backpack, while still leaving room for sandwiches, a Frisbee and an air horn (is it just us?).
