The $1,500 netbook

Sony heads into la-la land with the latest Vaio P model, which adds a 1.6GHz Atom CPU and 128GB SSD to bump the price to $1,499.99. Engadget points out that all still come with Vista, whose bloat does serious damage to the P's usefulness. So that's a $1,500 ticket to a day of tinkering just to get a productive machine.

Seriously, I love my $800 Vaio P with Windows XP, but this? You can get a MacBook Air for a grand and a half.
