False Advertising? Sony Vaio P "Barely" Fits in Back Pocket

False Advertising? Sony Vaio P "Barely" Fits in Back Pocket

Tight squeeze, eh Sony? Some new promo pics of the new VAIO P Series Lifestyle PC have enraged some Japanese bloggers who are ashamed by the ad's unrealistic size portrayal.

Considering it is the world's lightest 8-inch notebook, it's not totally outlandish to assume it might be able to fit in the pocket of a pair of jeans. But then again, Jimmy Fallon could barely fit it in his jacket pocket, which leads to me believe a pair of my hip hugging jeans would definitely be out of the question. What do you think? Are you more ticked off that it's not small enough to carry in a pocket, or are you peeved that the ad is inaccurate?

I don't really care about the ad, I want to know where I can get my hands on one! a small laptop is genius. I don't do PC's, though, I wish Apple would take note of this.

yea, i wouldnt put a laptop in my back pocket, or any pocket so it's not that big of a deal to me. i'd probably put it in my purse though.. but anything that can "barely" fit in a back pocket will fit in my purse with room to spare

Her hiney must be very wide to fit that in her back pocket. Wonder what Levis is getting out of this?

Wait - next you're going to tell me that the burgers advertised on TV don't really look like that in real life?! ;) *IF* I was going to buy one and I intended for it to fit in my back pocket, yeah, I'd be pissed. But aside from that, being "enraged" over an ad like this isn't going to happen.

Seriously there are "enraged" bloggers? People need to find a better hobby. All I took away from this ad is this computer is very small (and sex sells ;-)

lol, Leila07 I think it's very good laptop size for women-or men to carry in a bag tho. No need for ugly laptop bags.

So the advertisers are exaggerating reality? No WAY!! I always thought ads told the truth. :P

I think while it's ridiculous to make that ad, it's not like I'm in the habit of wanting to put my laptop in my pocket. I don't even like to carry my cell in my pocket. :/

Ads are never accurate, and that doesn't make the computer huge. I still think it's kind of impressive.

I'm trying to figure out why anyone would want to carry a laptop around in their jean pocket in the first place.

If they made cute DS-style cases for it I'd just throw it in my purse. It's probably best not to carry a $900 anything in your back pocket, unless it has a 200 lb. weight limit.
