Sony VAIO X is a 11-inch netbook billed as the lightest ever notebook and uses a carbon fiber shell to reach a weight of just 1.6 pounds, and measures 0.55 inches thick across its whole length. VAIO X systems launch at $1,300 and have a 2GHz Atom, 2GB of RAM, a 64GB solid-state drive and Windows 7. Every model has 3G through Verizon as well as data-independent GPS, but a special Signature Collection model at $1,500 both comes in all-gold and doubles the permanent storage to 128GB. Pre-orders begin this evening and will deliver systems next month.
