Sony VAIO G11 Series

Sony Europe this morning launched three additions to its VAIO notebooks, including a model previously unavailable anywhere beyond Japan. The G11 (pictured) is the first version of the VAIO G available outside of southeast Asia and is one of the lightest portables in the market thanks to its carbon fiber shell, weighing under 2.5 pounds despite its 12-inch screen and dual-layer DVD rewriter. In contrast to the Japanese model, however, the European version has been tuned for 9 hours of average battery life due in part to its ultra-low voltage 1.33GHz Core Duo. A launch date and price are unavailable, but Sony Europe expects to deliver the G11 with a base 1GB of RAM, a 100GB hard disk, a fingerprint reader, and Windows Vista Business.

Revealed during the announcement was the AR30, a European equivalent to the North American AR390E with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo, Blu-Ray, dual 120GB hard drives, and Vista Home Premium. The 11.1-inch widescreen VAIO TX5 has also received the performance boosts of its Japanese TX equivalent with a faster 1.33GHz ULV Core Duo, 100GB of storage, and Vista Business. Exact release details as well as North American equivalents for the G11 and TX5 also remain unannounced.
