A WALLET, A PHONE, AN iPOD, AND A LAPTOP IS THREE TOO MANY:

The size of a purse, Sony's netbook is slickest around (Mark Prigg, 21st January 2009, Daily Mail)

In the last 12 months, laptops have got smaller and more powerful by the day, and advances in technology have led to the emergence of the netbook, a new class of tiny machine.

Sony's Vaio P is without doubt the slickest implementation of this idea (at least until Apple makes one).

No larger than a women's clutch purse, it measures 245 x 120 x 19.8mm, and weighs just 638 grams.

The eight-inch widescreen display is superb, although cramming an entire Windows desktop onto such a small screen does mean small objects on screen can be hard to spot - you might find yourself using a slightly larger font than normal, for example.

But overall the machine works exactly as a full-sized laptop would.
