    Sony is now adding an SSD option to its featherweight VAIO G ultra-portable notebook. The latest Sony VAIO G uses a 32GB SSD drive instead of the traditional 40GB hard disk. The weight of the notebook drops from 1.97 pounds to 1.89 pounds. Battery life is also extended 30 minutes bringing average run time to 6.5 hours with the standard battery and 13 hours with the extended battery. The Sony VAIO G features a carbon fiber shell, 12.1" XGA screen an Intel 945GMS Express chipset and is available with Celeron M, and ULV Core Solo processors. Other features include 802.11a/b/g wireless, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, PCMCIA slot, multi-card media reader and a fingerprint reader. When the Sony VAIO G was first announced in November for the Japanese market, prices ranged $1,800 USD to $2,100 USD. The SSD option will cost an additional $545 USD.

    so sony is the first to break the 6 hour battery right? Nice addition with the SSD, seeing as 32Gb and 40 GB arent much different. Id like two of those in a raid array :)

    That's a nice laptop, except for the black-and-white-minstrel-show case color. Fix the case, and you've got a new customer. Comeon SONY. Fire the marketing guys and buy in a new team from Apple (i products) and you'll zoom to the top of the sales charts!

    Nah, just put an apple symbol underneath the "Vaio" and boom, you got an apple product. Although it won't make the laptop run any faster, it's sure to draw in some fanboys. Watch out for those lawsuits though.
