Laptops were meant to make life and work more mobile, but Sony has just raised the bar on laptop mobility with what the company calls its “lightest fully usable notebook ever produced.” Using a 12.1-inch display, 1.5GB of RAM and 80GB hard drive, the Sony Vaio G1 weighs just 1.97-pounds by utilizing a more advanced carbon body than its carbon predecessors, X505 and the SZ/carbon. With the DVD-RW and a 12-hour battery on board, the total weight comes to 2.46 pounds—still quite impressive. The only drawback is the 1.2GHz Core Solo, but we can let that slide. Available in Japan in the first week of December at around $2000, and for US folks you can pre-order from tech-importer Dynamism.

The Sony Vaio VGC-LS1 All-in-One Desktop PC is looking sweet. The PC is hidden inside the 19” XBRITE flat panel widescreen display, which is encased in clear polycarbonate. Sporting a Core Duo 1.83GHZ processor running Windows Media Center, 2GB of ram and 250GB hard drive, the VGC-LS1 also has built-in web cam and mic, TV tuner with DVR capabilities, and is packaged with wireless mouse and keyboard. All that for $2,099. Very cool. But other sources note the lack of a dedicated video card as a drawback.

No prizes for guessing whose design portfolio Sony have been sneaking peeks into, those minxes. But then there's no denying that their VAIO N10 series is a good looking machine. With an A4-footprint and Sony's delicious 15.4" X-black screen (which is guaranteed to bring all the boys to the yard), a minimum of 512mb of memory and at least an 80gb hard drive, an Intel Core Duo processor finds just about every modern tick box on the spec sheet checked.
