All-in-One desktops (2002)

The Sony Vaio W series is a line of All-in-One PCs. It was first launched in Japan, and came to the U.S. market in October 2002, with the first model being PCV-W10. Combining features such as large multimedia speakers, foldable keyboards, a large 15.3 inch display, i.LINK, 1.6 GHz Pentium 4 CPUs with 512 MB RAM, and in some later models TV features, the W series was seen as a high-end multimedia series with great specs for its time. It was replaced by the Vaio L series in 2006.

Netbooks (2009)

The Sony Vaio W series name was relaunched in 2009 as a series of notebook computers. It is aimed primarily towards the youth market, creating a new market audience for Vaio. The product is intended to be mainly used for at home for browsing, sharing photos online, downloading music and online networking. It clearly differentiates itself from the existing notebook line-up and is not presented as a full PC.
