*In this entry I am going to talk about three VAIO Notebook series includes Sony VAIO G11 Series, Sony VAIO TX-5 and Sony VAIO AR30. All of them are pricy laptops.

Sony released Sony VAIO VGN-UX50 UMPC as its first Vista- based VAIO notebook few days ago. Now, it is launching ultraportable VAIO G11 series notebooks in UK with Vista.

Business travelers can enjoy these VAIO G11 notebooks as they are very light and weigh only about 1.12kg; they have sturdy fiber carbon chassis and resistant dropping up to 90cm height when switched off, or 72cm when it's on; they have a battery life of 9 hours; and they are equipped with strong security utilities includes fingerprint recognition and TPM security.
