At the IFA 2009, Sony has unveiled their latest addition to the VAIO family. The VAIOX is a half-inch thin ultraportable laptop with an 11.1-inch screen, despite the lack of official full specs at the moment Sony has said that the VAIO X is set to further push the battery life limit amongst laptops.
With this in mind, the VAIO X is likely to pack an Atom processor but the price of this new lappie along with its well equipped luxurious body kit, it won’t surprise us too much should the pricetag be abit on the heavy side.

When you think of netbooks, a large majority of them are tiny laptops built based on a nasty block of plastic, with no elegance to it whatsoever. ASUS’ new Eee PC 1002HAE (consider it an upgrade from the 1002HA) is abit different. The 1002HAE has an exterior aluminum skin which gives an added advantage of shedding half a pound of weight from 1.45kg to 1.2kg. While its main specs remain much the same – 1.6GHz N280 processor, 802.11b/g/n, 1GB of memory and 160GB disk, 1.3 megapixel webcam, memory card slot, 3.8-hour Li-Polymer battery, and 10-inch 1,024 x 600 pixel LED backlit display.

Is this be too good to be true? A slide of Dell’s upcoming roadmap for netbooks has leaked, so detailed that it even includes some of the specs of an unannounced Dell Mini 11. A Dell Mini 11 netbook sounds about right in the long term, but it seems Dell’s plans for the short term will be on the Mini 10. The current Dell Inspiron Mini 10 model will be getting upgrade options for Vista, a 3G modem, and potentially a 1.86GHz Atom on April 17th.
