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.
