vaio x

Sony Japan has launched a product page for the upcoming Sony Vaio X series laptop. The Vaio X is a thin and light notebook that measures 0.55 thick and weighs just 1.5 pounds thanks to a crazy light carbon fiber chassis. In other words, don’t expect the Vaio X to carry a netbook-like sub-$500 price tag.

But last we heard, the laptop was expected to have a low power Intel Atom processor which would help provide long battery life while generating very little heat (I’m guessing this super-thin computer may feature a fanless design). In other words, there’s a good chance that the laptop will be both expensive and relatively slow as far as pricey computers go.

There’s a chance that Sony may have changed its mind about the processor, but there’s pretty much zero information available on the product page. Still, it’ll probably be worth keeping an eye on this space to see if any new details emerge.

  1. The NEC VersaPro Type VS is as light, less than half the price, is thinner and is way more durable – it can withstand 150kg and be dropped 78cm. This Sony will cost $2000 and despite ‘carbon fiber’ will not be as strong as a VersaPro UltraLite. As for bigger laptops, Panasonic Let’s Note models kick Sony’s ass.

  2. I have to tell you after almost a year of carrying a 2.8 lbs+ netbook around everywhere I’d pay extra for a 1.5 lbs device that was thinner.

    If you carry it around all the time even 3 lbs can get heavy especially if you want to carry a lunch, a paperback, and odds-n-ends. The VAIO TT and P didn’t spark my interest but this VAIO X does. I might not be able to afford one, but this is the first netbook like device I would envey and covet like my neighbors wife…or ox.
