Sony has announced the Gulf launch of what it claims is the lightest notebook in the world.

The new Sony Vaio X weighs just 655g, which Sony says makes it the lightest notebook with 10 inch or larger screen.

The latest addition to the Vaio range is aimed at mobile business users. The notebook has an 11.1 inch LCD screen, and while it is only 13.9mm thick, it boasts carbon and aluminium construction for durability. An optional additional eight-cell battery provides up to 16 hours of battery life.

The Vaio X is powered by an Intel Atom Z550 processor, and runs Windows 7.

For connectivity, the Vaio X includes WWAN, VGA and LAN port and a built-in webcam. The notebook also features a 17mm key pitch isolation keyboard for comfortable typing and a touch pad that can read multi-finger gestures.

Osamu Miura, managing director of Sony Gulf, said: "We are pleased to introduce in the Middle East the Vaio X, an extremely portable laptop that blends unique features with high performance components and ultimate reliability. The core design also conforms to new market dynamics and evolving demographic trends, catering to tech-savvy users and business people who are constantly on the go."

I agree with Marco, all Vio's have serious wireless problem i tried 3-4 diff models all have same problem of LOW SIGNAL and at the same spot Hp/Acer had excellent signal. By the way support is bad WORLDWIDE

If you value reliability, good service and your business, I would NOT even touch Sony with a barge pole, hope this saves others from serious down-time using VAIOs for business. I am absolutely convinced Sony VAIO is designed to fail and a complete rip-off. They should be avoided for their lousy and incompetent customer service, especially in Europe. Once it BSODs you'll realise what an expensive brick it is.
