The VAIO PCG-X505 is a high-end, thin and light, "ultraportable" laptop computer released by Sony worldwide in 2004 (with a Japan-only release in 2003).
It was highly praised for its cutting-edge thin design, its very low weight (only 860g - 1.85lb, achieved by using carbon fiber for the lid) and for the good performance that it still managed to achieve in spite of the very compact dimensions. It featured an Intel Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) "Dothan" Pentium M clocked at 1.1GHz and Intel 855GME Graphics with 64MB of VRAM.
The original MSRP for its US release was 2999.99USD from the SonyStyle.com website. It shipped with Windows XP Professional.
