Sony's VAIO Expo Tour at the Sony Wonder Technology Lab in New York heralded the brand new VAIO T Series Ultrabook as well as a new portfolio of VAIO PCs built with Sony's industry-leading audio, video, imaging and software technology.
The first Ultrabook to carry the VAIO name, the T Series packs high performance and responsiveness into a stylishly slim magnesium and aluminum chassis for daily trips to the office or campus. Also in the VAIO family are enhancements to the E, S, Z and L All-in-One Series models, incorporating advanced features and a platform of innovations for all around excellence in productivity and entertainment.
"Thin and light is nothing new to Sony – we built the T Series Ultrabook from many of the same features as our amazingly thin and powerful ultra-premium VAIO Z Series, which has long exceeded Ultrabook specifications," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of Networked Technology and Services Division of Sony Electronics. "Our entire new VAIO portfolio incorporates the best technology from our innovative digital imaging, sound and TV divisions and unique features across all the models such as backlit keyboard and Sony's Rapid Wake technology. The new VAIO family continues Sony's efforts to offer advanced performance and design that fit all business and personal lifestyles."
The new VAIO T Series Ultrabook is the ultimate travel companion designed from the ground up to deliver intense performance and extreme mobility in an ultra-smooth full-flat brushed aluminum and magnesium chassis.
The S Series continues to offer the best combination of mobility and performance and all around excellence in a full-flat elegant design. Crafted in tough, weight-saving magnesium, aluminum and carbon fiber materials, the 13.3-inch and 15.5-inch models feature everything students and performance minded users need including standard voltage processors, NVIDIA Graphics with up to 2GB of VRAM, Optimus™ Battery Technology, different Hard Drive and Solid State Drive options, slot-in optical drives (Blu-ray Disc options as well) and backlit keyboards.
With the third generation of Intel Core processors now available, the S Series models will both be available with up to Core i7 and the 15-inch supports an i7 Quad Core processor, delivering even more performance automatically when users need it. Options for QUAD RAID 0 technologies are available on both the 13-inch and 15-inch S Series laptops.
Security is enhanced and made simple with TPM and Fingerprint Reader and fourth generation Hard Disk Drive Shock Protection Technology (Free Fall Protection Sensor and Axis Change Sensor).
High contrast display features multiple resolution offerings, enhanced scratch resistance and anti-reflective coating to minimize glare plus different resolution options. The larger 15-inch screen-size model features a Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS Display, offering super wide viewing angles for high-impact images when sharing projects with clients and colleagues.
Designed for the multi-tasking business professional, the VAIO celebrates its 15 year anniversary with an exclusive glossy carbon fiber Z Series Anniversary edition. Carbon fiber materials provide the VAIO Z with a durable and sleek casing, while maintaining a slim 2.6-pound weight. A Full HD Display (1920x1080) assures rich colors and a wide viewing angle while anti-reflective technology cuts distracting reflections when working under direct lighting.
The fastest notebook ever from Sony, the VAIO Z uses Solid State Flash RAID drives to store files and access data and is now available with third generation Intel Quad Core processors.
The Power Media Dock drive further expands the capabilities of the VAIO Z providing unparalleled convenience for the business user in need of additional ports or external displays. When paired with the dock, the Z Series transforms into the ultimate workstation and can support up to three external monitors.
In addition to performance, looks, mobility and expandability, the VAIO Z includes I/O port connectivity and Sony's unique Sheet Battery technology.
