While the Vaio X isn’t slated to be released in the US until the end of the month, our friends in Europe are able to grab one early, and NewGadgetsDE has a great tour of the laptop.  We’re anxious to get one in the TechnoBuffalo labs and see how it measures up. All this hotness does not come cheap, Sony is expected to sell these for  $1,299 (64GD SSD) or $1,499 (128 GB SSD)  I got some limited hands on time last month and really came away impressed with the design.  Performance though, has yet to be seen. Would you drop that kind of coin for something to slim and light?  Specs include:
