Sony's Vaio P was something that every geek out there synomously describes as a horrible mistake. Other than the literally "pocket-able" size, it had the internals of an underpowered netbook and a resource-hungry Windows Vista to make things worse. Also, there were way too many pixels packed in that small screen that made text look like tiny ants. Finally, being a unique product it was sold at a really high price.
But this time around Sony's chanting a different mantra. Maybe they finally realized that people aren't really keen on carrying portable computers in their back pockets, as yet. This year we've seen that "thin" is the USP that companies are focusing on for their premium segment products. Have a look at the Dell Adamo XPS for instance. Thus, the race for ultra-thinness and the most lightweight continues.
Sony is now part of this race and has brought out the Vaio X. It is an impressive feat of engineering and rectifies some of the usability issues faced with the Vaio P. But is this the perfect device wealthy individuals would want to own? We find out.
