VAIO G series notebooks get SSD’s
Along with Sony, Fujitsu have offered a 16GB and 32GB solution in their Lifebooks for some time now, but with Sony equaling the difference the more popular VAIO’s should continue to dominate the market. Since moving from the standard 40GB drive, Sony’s VAIO G has 30 minutes extra battery life (now 6.5 hours or 13 hours with the extended battery) and has lost some weight weighing in at 1.89 pounds.
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 niceties include 802.11a/b/g wireless, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, PCMCIA slot, multi-card media reader and a fingerprint reader.
