Sony unveils Vaio Type G subnotebook


Sony kicked off the new month by announcing its Japan-only "Vaio Business" line of subnotebooks at a news conference in Tokyo this morning. First up will be the carbon-bodied Vaio Type G series. Aimed at the business professional, the new models were based on feedback and suggestions garnered from more than a thousand people who fit the company’s targeted-user profile. A computer by professionals, for professionals: imagine that!

Starting at about $1400, the Type G has a 12.1-inch XGA display (1024 x 768) and weighs a scant 1.98 pounds. The UX280P, by comparison, tips the scales at 1.2 pounds. The subnotebook’s standard battery has an impressive 6-hour battery life and its carbon exterior is tough enough, says Sony, to withstand a fall from a table without any damage. A drop from exactly how high and onto what kind of surface are details obviously too tedious to go into.

The Vaio Type G will be available on December 2.
