Sony Vaio X
The laptop I crave I actually had in my hands, but only for a week or two as a trial. It's Sony's amazing 1.5-pound Vaio X.
It's basically a Netbook on the inside, but its flash-based solid-state drive allows it to run super cool and it's just SO light. Sending it back was far more painful than sending back any device in recent memory.
The standard battery only lasts for a couple of hours. An included extended battery gives several times that much battery although the add-on battery is nearly as heavy as the X itself. In any case, including both batteries gives users two good options.
I'm not sure I am ready to plunk down $1,300 for it, but I sure would be happy if it showed up under the Hanukkah bush.
