Lately, Sony’s been having more bad days than good ones, what with flaming batteries, Playstation 3 launch concerns and other financial woes. Well today, we get to report on something coming from Sony that actually looks good.

Sony Vaio G Series Laptop

The Sony VAIO G series of ultra-portable laptops weighs just 1.98 pounds and measures just 10.9″ x 8.5″ x 1″. The little portables feature a 12.1-inch TFT LCD screen (running at a respectable 1024×768 resolution). Powered by a Celeron or Core Solo 1.06GHz or 1.2GHz U1400 CPU, 40, 60 or 80GB hard drive and up to 1.5GB of RAM, the VAIO G should be more than sufficient for all but the most intensive business applications. The laptops also feature an on board fingerprint sensor for added security.

Battery life is up to 6 hours, and an optional 12.5 hour battery is available, but increases weight by about half a pound. Initially slated for launch this December in Japan, the base model runs 164,800 (appx. $1403 USD), with well configured systems around 220,000 yen (appx. $1872 USD).
