Sony has a full line of Vaio notebooks that run the gamut from thin and light ultraportables up the large and bulky multimedia notebooks. Sony has added a new notebook to its range today that falls into that portable category called the Vaio S series.
The new notebook has a magnesium frame and is only 3.8 pounds. The profile is a bit under an inch thick and the machine has a battery good for 7.5 hours per charge. The Vaio S is the first notebook to have a sheet battery that fits on the bottom of the rig and promises to double the run time.
The 13.3-inch screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and the notebook can be fitted with an Intel Core i7 CPU at 2.7GHz. Storage is up to 750GB and a 250GB SSD is optional. Sony will also cram up to 8GB of RAM and a Radeon HD 6630M GPU inside with hybrid graphics. The S series notebook starts at $969.99.Filed Under: Laptops, Technology News
