That is very underwhelming. First off Sony's laptops are always over priced and a pain to work on.

Second, is there no i5 option? No larger hard drive? They couldn't get 1440X900 out of the LCD as an option? 2 USB ports?

Agree. If Sony can fit 1280x720 on their new 4.3" phone screen, I'm sure they can manage 1440x900 on their 13" screen.

And, Sandy Bridge ?

I am not impressed with the size, nothing too far from current netbooks I think...

Hope AMD ones will be far better...

According to VR-Zone, Sony announced it a month too early, so right now it has Sandy Bridge. Probably their updated version will run on Ivy Bridge.

Word on the grapevine is that Sony is going to be the first company that Intel challenges with misusing the Ultrabook trademark. HAHAHA

Good gawd, Sony needs to get over themselves. They need to figure out they can't get by with selling junk just cause it has a Sony label on it. Nobody gives a rats ass about that anymore and they haven't cared since the age of the Walkman. You will go out of business Sony, wake up.

john_4Wintel, "lets copy the Apple Air and call them Ultrabooks."

Funny thing how Sony had the Ultrabook with the "Macbook Air keyboard" back in 2003. Sony VAIO X505, look it up iSheep.

Somewhat underwhelming...I'd prefer a ASUS or Acer one.

That thing better have a great price. The nearly year old Macbook Air absolutely smokes that thing in just about every respect. Also a 32GB SSD and 320GB HD. Most people don't need that much storage. Just put in a 64GB or 128GB SSD and be done with it, while having the option to upgrade to larger sizes.

Anyways Sony already had an Ultrabook the Z-Series. Which is thinner and lighter. It is also much faster, more expandable and quite expensive. They probably made the specs so low to avoid cannabalizing the Z-Series. They can have an i7 2.8Ghz, 7hour battery (14 with thin sheet battery that snaps underneath), 8GB RAM, 2x256GB SSD RAID 0, 4G mobile broadband, 802.11n, Intel Wireless display, 1920x1080 13" display, dock and all sorts of other bells and whistles.

How is this a "feature"? There's nothing HD about Intel's graphics. Pathetic.

I agree; 1.6 kg is too heavy for an ultrabook (1.6 kg = 3.52 lbs). I want an ultrabook because it's LIGHT WEIGHT. I don't want a heavy, underpowered laptop masquerading as an ultrabook.
