Up close with the ultrathin Sony Vaio X
Previewed at IFA Berlin, Sony's carbon-fiber blade of a laptop is less than half an inch thick. Here it is up close and personal.
Giving the MacBook Air and the Dell Adamo a run for their money in the thin/coffee-shop sexy department, the Sony Vaio X Series notebookdefinitely has the looks to rise to the top. At less than half an inch thick and weighing 1.5 pounds, it certainly could be one of the thinnest thin-and-lights out there, and a carbon fiber exterior should help with durability. Internal 3G and an "all day and into the night" battery also sound nice.
As to price and specs beyond an 11.1-inch screen, we're as curious as you are. Until then, here are some up-close and personal shots direct from Berlin for you to peek at. Hope you like the color black.
