Sony Unveils Carbon Fibre Vaio X

At IFA 2009 in Berlin, Sony unveiled the amazingly sexy Vaio X ultra portable that has an 11.1-inch screen, features an 'all-day' battery, weighs just 1.5 lbs and is just half an inch (14 mm) thick. Perhaps making it all the more attractive is that its casing is built from carbon fibre.

Check out the video from Netbooknews:

Vaio X First Look

As much as we love it from the outside, the Vaio X's internals are still very much a mystery. There's strong indication right now that it's an Atom processor inside – and even if it'll be the based on the upcoming Pine Trail platform, it's a little unpowered for how great rest of the design looks.

Stay tuned for more as we hear about it.

    Sony tax can be as bad as Apple tax sometimes. Specially when it's a new or high profile product. That combined with an integrated battery and a low powered processor means that it wont catch the eye of anyone who has work to do.

    Carbon fibre is nice but I'm not sold on that VGA port on the side. Isn't it about time we drop VGA and upgrade to DVI or HDMI?
