What's up with companies suddenly not wanting
to call their netbooks, um, netbooks? Sony's Mike Abary sat down with LaptopMag
in order to discuss the VAIO P
, and as always

category, noting that "the type of premium customer it is targeting probably doesn't even know what a netbook is." Furthermore, he reckoned that around 60% of prospective VAIO P buyers would be women, and it doesn't view 12-inch laptops as a threat.
