Yes, I’m typing this post on a Sony Vaio P. I’m currently at the wonderful Webstock conference in no-so-sunny Wellington*, and Sony kindly lent me the teeny PC to test during the trip. Physically the Vaio P is gorgeous in both look and feel. It’s really well put together, and the particular model I have [...]
