Sony outs its first Ultrabook
Not its first slimline laptop
Say hello to Sony's first Ultrabook - though it's not the Japanese giant's first oh-so-skinny compact laptop. Remember: Ultrabook is not a category, just an Intel brandname.
Actually, it's not even Sony's thinnest machine. That honour surely goes to the rather more sexy - but older - Vaio Z, a 16.7mm-think machine that's a wee bit more svelte than the 17.8mm new Vaio T.
The T's other attributes include a 1.4GHz Intel Core i3-2367M CPU, a second-gen part, not Ivy Bridge. There's 4GB of 1333MHz DDR 3 on board, plus a choice of SSD or 320GB 7200rpm hard drive with a 32GB Flash cache.
The display is a 13.3in, 1366 x 768 glossy job power by the on-processor Intel graphics.
The T comes with 2.4GHz 802.11n, one USB 2.0 port and a UBS 3.0 jack, and HDMI out.
There's no word on precise configurations - or how much they'll cost - but Sony did say the T line will go on sale in June. ®
