An elegant computer for business users and travelers

 

Regardless of what Sony thinks, the Vaio X is a netbook. Sure, it may stand out from the crowed due to it's unique design and because it weighs only 1.6lbs (about 2.3lbs with the extended battery). Helping it standout a bit more is the 2.0GHz Atom,...

Weiging under two pounds, the Vaio X is super thin, and even includes two batteries - perfect for those on the go. Unlike other netbooks, the Vaio X ships with a SSD, 2GB of RAM, 2GHz Atom processor, and Verizon/GPS
