Sony Vaio W

Tech Industry
[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> I'm Dan Ackerman, and we are here at CES 2010. And you know what we've seen a heck of a lot of netbooks come out this year, and one of our favorites is this new Sony VAIO W. Now, Sony has had their VAIO W Series before. They've revamped it for 2010, and some really interesting things about it. But it's not so much the technology inside. You see, this is a fairly standard netbook. It's got Intel's new N450 processor, which actually gives you really good battery life. It's got a fairly standard 10-inch screen, although this is one of the only netbooks that gives you a high-resolution 10-inch screen. Usually you have to trade up to an 11-inch screen to get that 1366 by 768 resolution. What's really interesting about the VAIO W is how they made it, the body itself. And you can see it's kind of white with a greenish tint. That's because it's a green netbook. It's made of a certain percentage, 20-something percent of postconsumer recycled CDs and DVDs. And they use that to make the chassis of the system. And instead of getting it in a cardboard box, like wrapped up in plastic, the system actually ships in this cloth bag. That is made up of postconsumer soda bottles, that pet plastic, that polyethylene terephthalate that they make the soda bottles out of. They use a certain percentage of that to make the bag. And, of course, they cut down on the paper manuals it ships with. So you get a CD and DVD laptop in a post-soda bottle bag, with very few paper manuals shipping with it, making for a very green, literally and figuratively, netbook. From CES 2010, that is the Sony VAIO W. ^M00:01:32 [ Music ]
