A couple of weeks ago, I was drooling over the limited edition gold Sony VAIO X Series.
I still love Fluffy (my netbook) but she’s not meeting my needs anymore. Many times, I don’t even bring her out even when I need to have a mobile PC with me.
And then, just days later, I received an advertorial assignment.
“Would you like to write an advertorial for a VAIO notebook?”
I was, like, “OMG TELL ME IT’S FOR THE VAIO X Series!”
And it was, like, “HOW YOU KNOW??!”
Life is awesome!!!
Well, okay, not THAT awesome. I don’t actually get a free VAIO X Series for this.
But it renews my wish to own one.
And I won’t be raving over it because this is an advertorial. I am totally going to rave over it because it meets all my current needs.
It’s Xtremely pretty!
Yes, actually, that’s my main criteria for any gadget. It’s a girl thing, okay.
Like all VAIO notebooks, the X Series is classy and elegant. But there is a beautiful limited-edition lustrous gold model in the VAIO X Series. Classy and elegant times one million!
It’s Xtremely light!
The VAIO X Series boasts the world’s lightest notebook, at only 655 grams for the VPCX113KG model.
With a 11.1″ WXGA display, I think it’s a perfect size, small enough to carry around frequently, big enough as a workspace for my blogging and Facebook gaming. Haha.
It’s Xtremely thin!
It’s 13.9mm. That’s ridiculously thin for a laptop or notebook! That’s like 1.39 cm! Like 0.54 inches! I could slip it into my handbag and the regular occupants inside wouldn’t even notice the invasion!
It’s Xtremely mobile!
Depending on which model you get, the VAIO X Series offers a variety of connection choices. There’s Wireless WAN 3.5G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, all built in!
The beauty of built-in connections is that it saves on battery power, as opposed to USB connections.
Which brings us to the last (but not least) point, which is actually the most important point of all, next to looks (for me).
Xtremely awesome battery life!
Who can beat 16 hours of usage on one single battery pack? Who, huh?
The wedge-shape optional X battery not only gives you 16 pure hours of usage, it also offers an angled-typing experience.
It will be so great not having to bring the power cable out all the time. Power cables can be almost as heavy and bulky as the notebooks they’re powering, which is often troublesome and inconvenient.
This 16-hour battery pack just saves the day!
Wow, okay. I’m going to put this on my Christmas wishlist. The Goonfather was just asking me about it. Haha.
The gold one is limited. I hope it doesn’t get sold out before I get my hands on one!
Well, the Sony VAIO X Series is already available at major electronics stores and Sony stores. Why not see it for yourself in person?
Or check it out at the microsite.
Now to launch a Christmas Present Campaign on the Goonfather!

10 most notable laptop disasters that won’t ever happen to a Sony Vaio:
#10: Sorry Honey I Punched the Laptop:
“Striking a your laptop computer with a closed fist, even while closed, will jostle the logic board and stop the computer,” said Micro Replay’s CEO Joe Kouyoumjian. Estimated repair cost: $1,000.

The pilot of a commercial Airbus A320 moves his seat forward while the laptop is on the floor, crushing the case and breaking the logic board. Estimated repair cost: $800.
“Full disclosure: Numbers 10 through eight are very rare, less than 1% of all laptop computer repairs that we see,” said Kouyoumjian.
#7: Temper Toss (a Subset of the ‘Facebook Freakout’):
Hurled objects can easily break a laptop’s screen. “If you receive bad news on your Blackberry, resist the temptation to throw near your open Apple MacBook Air,” Kouyoumjian suggests. Estimated repair cost: $500
#6: Vomit Comet
“If you puke on your laptop, don’t even tell the laptop computer repair company what the liquid is,” notes Kouyoumjian. “If we know it’s bodily fluid, we don’t want it.” Estimated repair cost: Fix it yourself, please.
#5: Passing Out Drunk on Your Dell Laptop
Your sleeping bodyweight can bend the case, and may also ruin the screen. Estimated repair cost: $325 – $500
#4: MacBook Laptop as Foot Stool, or Scale.
No Laptop computer is designed to support your weight, so stepping on your laptop will almost certainly break it. Repair cost: Depends on how much you weigh…
#3: Ear-buds as Laptop or Notebook Computer Terrorist:
“Closing your laptop with your ear-buds inside will crack the screen,” according to Kouyoumjian. “This kind of laptop computer repair is growing with alarming speed. It seems we love our ear buds, yet forget that they are not made of cushy foam. We see a lot of cracked screens as a result.” Estimated repair cost: $440
#2: Your Five Year-Old Discovers Gravity!
Any time you drop your laptop from more than 2 feet, it can shake loose a chip or board, and break the machine. Estimated repair cost: ($300)
#1: Starbucks Hates Your Keyboard!
“Liquid spills on a laptop’s keyboard short them out every time,” says Joe Kouyoumjian. “Maybe it’s the caffeine that makes us jittery, but so many laptops are killed by coffee there should be a warning on the paper cup.” Estimated repair cost: $350 to $500, depending on the amount of time the computer was left running after the spill.
