Sony X-Series Carbon Fiber Ultraportable: Half Inch Thin, 1.5 Pounds

Illustration for article titled Sony X-Series Carbon Fiber Ultraportable: Half Inch Thin, 1.5 Pounds

The ultrathin Vaio we've known Sony's had in them: The X-Series is built with carbon fiber, so the 11.1-incher is 0.55 inches thin and weighs about 1.5 pounds (half a MacBook Air). Plus, Sony's promising crazy battery life.

Update: Aaaand that's cause it's apparently got an Atom processor inside Engadget's been told. Didn't Sony learn anything from the Vaio P?

For those keeping score on thinness, Adamo is 0.65 inches and weighs around 4 pounds, while MacBook Air's ballooning ass is 0.76 inches and it weighs about 3 pounds, though both of them have 13-inch screens versus the X-series 11.1-inch display. But still, Atom? And god, I don't even wanna know how much it's gonna cost. [Engadget]

I dont know about the rest of you, but the looks on that thing are exactly what I think a netbook should be like. Thin, lightweight, sexy looking.

Now, the thing is going to be terribly underpowered, expensive and just look at the bleeding on that display!

I dont think I will buy it when I go shopping for a new laptop unless its cheap in price.
