Sony Japan have put up a pre-registration page for those rich and weak-armed enough to consider buying their upcoming VAIO X series ultraportable. The notebook, announced at the beginning of September, is only listed as “coming soon”, and we’re still yet to see final specifications, but Sony have previously confirmed that it will retail “under $2,000”.
In its current incarnation, the VAIO X-series packs an Intel Atom processor with an 11.1-inch display and a battery Sony claim is sufficient for a full day’s use. However the company have also revealed that they’re considering CULV processors, which would give the X-series more flexibility and power.
Ports include two USB 2.0, VGA, ethernet and a multiformat card reader, all squeezed into a half-inch thick carbon fiber and aluminum chassis. The VAIO X is predicted to land shortly after Windows 7 makes its full debut on October 22nd, so we’ll know full specifications then.
