Sony’s Vaio G1: fully loaded but just 1.98 pounds


Sony_vaio_g1At just under two-pounds, the new Sony Vaio G1 is fairly svelte, but still packs a decent wallop of computing needs into the carbon-fiber chassis. You’ll only get an Intel Core Solo at 1.2 GHz, but I’d carry a capable 2-pounder all day over a 10-pound desktop replacement. [Try it…I dare you!]

The G1 offers up these additional specs:

  • 12.1-inch XGA screen
  • Up to 1.5 GB of RAM
  • 40 or 80 GB hard drive
  • Windows XP Professional
  • Integrated fingerprint reader, WiFi / Bluetooth
  • Optional optical drive which bumps the weight up to 2.17 pounds
  • Word on the street is that the double-capacity adds weight, but extends your usage up to 12 hours!

Dynamism has the base model for pre-order around $2,600 at this time.
