Sony VAIO G to get 32GB SSD option to replace the 40GB HDD

Sony is no stranger to solid-state discs when it comes to their mobile products. The company already includes a 16GB SSD with its VAIO UX90 UMPC. Sony is now adding an SSD option to its featherweight VAIO G ultra-portable notebook.

The latest Sony VAIO G forgoes the traditional 40GB HDD and instead uses a 32GB SSD (manufacturer unknown). The weight of the notebook drops from an already remarkable 1.97 pounds to 1.89 pounds. Battery life is also extended 30 minutes bringing average run time to 6.5 hours with the standard battery and 13 hours with the extended battery.

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.

When the Sony VAIO G was first announced in November for the Japanese market, prices ranged $1,800 USD to $2,100 USD. The SSD option will set you back an additional $545 USD.
