10 cool gadgets we can't wait to get our hands on

They're not available here... yet

The coolest gadgets almost always debut overseas. But we'll get them eventually, and we can't wait

Sony goes sleek, not meek

Sony VAIO G2

This superthin laptop comfortably breaks the 1kg barrier with virtually no compromises, thanks to its durable yet lightweight carbon-fibre casing.

Its 12in screen and full keyboard mean that you won't be forced to squint or engage in two-finger typing.

You can choose a 100GB hard drive or a 64GB solid-state drive (SSD). Because they have no moving parts, SSDs are faster, quieter, and more power-efficient (though also much pricier, at least so far). If you and your flight attendant muff a drink exchange, spilling club soda on the drip-proof keyboard, the G2 shuts down automatically before anything gets fried.

Availability: Japan
