Earlier this Month, Sony
launched the world’s lightest laptop VAIO-X. It is being promoted as
Size Zero Laptops
because of its very less weight of 655 grams.To promote the ultra thin
laptops from Soni Vaio, the company has roped in Size Zero actress Kareena
Kapoor as its brand ambassador.About ‘Size Zero’ Sony Vaio X Sony Vaio X laptop
has been considered as world’s first slimmest and lightest laptop. The 655 gms
weight VAIO X is about half an inch thin.
- Intel Atom Z540 processor @ 1.86GHz
- 64GB SSD
- 2GB RAM
- 11.1-inch LED screen
- 1366×768 resolution
- WiFi b/g/n
- Windows 7 Home Premium
Design and other features
- The Laptop is super-slim just 0.55 inches thick with 11.1-inch screen that
is only 0.125 inch thick.
- Comes in two styles – one with a smooth glossy finish and the other being a
matt metal look
- Unlike most VAIOs, it does not pack insanely high resolution. Resolution is
1366×768 which is the same as found in earlier 11-inch VAIOs like VAIO TT/VAIO
- The keyboard of VAIO-X is similar to those of MacBook. The keyboard contains
widely spaced and separated buttons but the space keys are small
- The Laptop comes with two inter-changeable batteries a standard battery with
3.5 hour backup and a larger heavier battery which would be available in
battery-stand combo having a 14 hour backup.Battery will last ‘a working day’ or
- The Touchpad is small even though there is a lot of empty space around it.
That said, we faced no problems in using it. The buttons are located below it
and have pleasant tactile feedback. They do not produce a lot of sound which is
nice thing to know.
- Integrated with mobile broadband (UMTS) – no external broadband cable
- 2USB ports, VGA port, Ethernet socket and SD/ Memory Stick reader.SONY could
have fit in another USB port on the right side. Most of the netbooks come with 3
USB 2.0 ports.Its LAN port is drop-down flap type and SONY has put little stands
beneath its chassis which will let you plugin a full LAN cable.
- Built Motion-Eye webcam
- The SONY VAIO X 64GB SSD model comes with Windows 7 Home Premium,
plus a truck load of junkware.Everything fancy animation that the
windows Aero brings to the Windows 7 left us unsatisfied. It would be better
if SONY sells it with the Aero disabled.
- And in the end, out of 53.1GB total capacity (rest is taken by recovery
partition), you get only 39GB free.And since sony hates partitioning …………. have
a lovely time installing partition app and making partitions.
Sony Vaio X comes with ‘Silverthorne’ Intel Atom processor
and it is pre-loaded with Windows 7 Professional (32-bit). Sony offers VAIO X in
two models VPCX113KG for Rs. 64,990 and VPCX117LG for Rs.
84,990 – both with one year international warranty.
