Sony's smashed the 2-pound barrier with its Sony Vaio G1, a 1.98-pound carbon fiber laptop that the company calls "the lightest fully usable notebook ever produced." Despite that feather weight, it still has a 12.1-inch display, 1.5GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive.
Unfortunately, its 1.2GHz Intel Core Solo processor isn't going to set any speed records, but we'll forgive this slim little jewel for that, which still is just 2.46 pounds light even with its DVD-RW drive inserted and a double-capacity 12 hour battery inside. Available in Japan in the first week of December at around $2000, you can pre-order it now for US delivery from cool-tech importer Dynamism.
This one stirs our techno-lust, especially since we find a 12.1-inch screen particularly useful for airborne computing while crammed into munchkin-sized airplane seats.
See a slew of gorgeous pics, after the jump!
