Sony Vaio G1: Preorder Now

Weighing in at just 1.98-pounds, the new Sony Vaio G1 is the lightest girl in the class. To achieve this crazy low weight, the G1 features a carbon fiber chassis. There is, however, some substance to its feathery existence.

It features a 12.1-inch XGA TFT and a 17mm keypitch keyboard. The G1 has a 1.2GHz Intel Core Solo processor and can hold up to 1.5GB of RAM. It also comes standard with an 80GB hard drive.

If you can bear an extra half pound, the combined weight of the DVD-RW drive and the double-capacity battery, brings the total weight up to just 2.46-pounds. And that battery touts a 12-hour battery life.

Pricing starts at $2199 with no DVD drive and goes up to $2799 with options. It is slated to ship during the first week of December.
