Vaio T-Series Is First Sony Ultrabook

Sony has unveiled its first Ultrabook, the Vaio T-series which will be available with displays of 13.3 and 11.6in in size. Both of them come with a chassis made of aluminium and magnesium and with a battery life of up to nine hours.

The Ultrabook can be switched on and off simply by opening and closing the lid with the company's Rapid Wake + Eco feature keeping the device on stand by for up to 90 days without the need to charge up.

The base unit, the VAIO SVT1311M1E, comes with an Intel Core i3-2367M CPU. Oddly enough, it is a Sandy Bridge model rather than Ivy Bridge. It also comes with 4GB RAM, a 320GB HDD and a 32GB SSD, a 1,366 x 768 pixels display, Intel's HD 3000 graphics, no optical drive, Wi-Fi, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet ports, a HD web wamera powered by "Exmor for PC", Bluetooth 4.0 as well as one USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 port.

Other features bundled with the Ultrabook include Sony's Clear Phase and xLoud technologies for the audio side as well as PlayMemories Home. The laptop also comes with a fully functional version of Adobe Acrobat X Standard.

As expected, it runs on Windows 7 and at 1.6Kg, it fits the bill when it comes to portability.
