Sony is targeting college students and surf enthusiasts with its new VAIO W Series Imperial Lime Edition ultraportable netbook which features a boardshort-inspired design from Billabong. Obviously this look will not appeal to everyone, but there are a hell of a lot of Billabong customers out there who would go for this new W Series Imperial Lime Edition. It has a HD (1366x768) 10.1-inch LED backlit widescreen display, Intel Atom 1.66GHz CPU, a 250GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, and it runs Microsoft Windows 7 Starter operating system.
Available now starting at $500, the VAIO W Series Imperial Lime Edition mini-PC is also set to do good things in the world, according to Sony:
Building on the partnership, Sony is proud to participate in Billabong’s Design for Humanity event on June 10, 2010. This year, the Design for Humanity charitable initiative will benefit Invisible Children, an organization that rebuilds schools and provides jobs in war-torn Northern Uganda.
Sony will donate two of the new Billabong inspired W Series mini-PCs to be auctioned off at the Design for Humanity event with all proceeds going to the Invisible Children foundation. Committed to the environment, Sony also features trade-in and recycling programs for all its PCs.
