Here's an 11" Sony VAIO notebook that just received FCC approval, the VGN TX800 which will start out with an Intel Core Solo ULV (ultra-low-voltage) 1.06GHz or 1.2GHz processor, eventually to be upgraded to the Intel Core Duo U2500.
Not much else is known about the TX800, but we thought all the other manufacturers had pretty much moved past the Core Solo processor. This looks like a baby-step upgrade to Sony's TX790 series, running the Intel Pentium M 1.2GHz processor. If that's any indication, it sells for around $3000. Hopefully this TX800 will be a bit more price-friendly.
