The Sony VAIO VGN-X505 is an incredibly thin and lightweight notebook, measuring a mere half-inch, the X505 can be compared side-by-side to a wooden pencil.
The VAIO X505 is among the first notebooks ever to feature a carbon nickel casing, contributing to the computer’s extra-slim form and keeping it in the featherweight class at a little under two pounds. With a 10.4-inch screen and a full-featured keyboard, the X505 squeezes the performance of a notebook twice the size into a package that is about half an inch thick.
The unit comes with an Intel Pentium M processor and features a 20GB hard drive. A form-fitting ballistic nylon carrying case and matching accessories case make a style statement. Standard accessories include a specially designed 802.11g wireless LAN card, display/LAN adapter and cleaning cloth. Available exclusively through Sony Style concept stores and online at SonyStyle.com for about $3,000, the X505 notebook will also be bundled with a USB mouse with a Memory Stick media slot.
