Sony VAIO X to ship next month, touch notebook too?

updated 06:35 pm EDT, Mon October 5, 2009

Sony VAIO X may be ready in November

Sony's VAIO X ultralight could be ready next month and have a second notebook follow along if a rumor tonight proves true. The 1.5-pound notebook would ship in November, according to CrunchGear, and would be a direct replacement for the VAIO TT. A strategy of the sort implies it will use a low-voltage Core 2 Duo, which would support Sony's claims of extra-long battery life.

The system is already known to have built-in 3G, an 11.1-inch display and Windows 7.

Sony's other system is said to be its first touchscreen notebook but, unlike Dell's Latitude XT or HP's Pavilion tx series, won't be a tablet of any form. Hard specifications aren't available other than that Windows 7 is certain. At least some Windows 7 systems are known to be using multi-touch and may include Sony's model.
