Summary: Sony's VAIO X is so light and stylish, this product is practically in a class by itself. For $1,499, you're getting a system that not only lasts longer than all other netbooks, but it sets a new standard for portability. Additionally, the built-in 3G and GPS ensures that users will be connected wherever they go. However, for an 11-inch system, we were disappointed in this machine's small keyboard and touchpad.
Summary: There are ultraslim laptops, there are netbooks – and then there is the Sony Vaio X. Technically, Sony’s 14mm-thick marvel fits into both of the categories listed above. But it makes a mockery of any other laptop that claims to be an ultraslim, superslim or any other invented adjective. Remember when the Apple Air 's inch-thick dimensions seemed incredible? The Vaio X is around half as thin again. It barely has the mass to support itself.
