Sony Officially Announces its First Ultrabook Offerings

We saw an abundance of Ultrabook offerings from an array of different companies at CES but not everyone was ready to show off their Ultrabook chops as early as January. Sony, for example, had brought some Ultrabooks but kept them safely out of the hands of prying journalists and bloggers with a glass case. Today, the company finally gave the VAIO T13 and T11 an official unveiling.

 

Boasting Intel's Sandy Bridge Intel Core i3-2367M CPU, the notebooks come in either 11- or 13-inch flavors (as is probably obvious from the names) and feature Intel HD Graphics 3000, 4GB DDR3 1333MHz SDRAM, the option of having hybrid storage solution that offers a 320GB hard drive working alongside a 32GB SSD, support for WLAN 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 (x1), USB 3.0 (x1), HDMI out, stereo speakers, and a HD Web cam with a 1.3-megapixel sensor. Sony says the resolution for the 13-inch model is 1366x768 with a 16:9 aspect ratio but offered no resolution for the smaller model.

The T-series is set to launch next month, but Sony has not yet detailed a specific release date or pricing.

    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...
