Sony announces its first Ultrabooks, the VAIO T13 and T11, for the European market
Finally escaping its plate glass prison at CES, Sony’s unveiled its first Ultrabook, the VAIO T13 and T11. It’s set for release next month and currently packing a Sandy Bridge Intel Core i3-2367M processor (no third-generation processor just yet), within a 323mm-thick frame that weighs in at around 1.6kg for the 13-inch version. Storage is a hybrid of a 320GB HDD and 32GB SSD, which promise to juggle fast start-up times with capacity, while a HD web cam beams out from above the 13.3-inch (1366 x 768) display; no word on the res of the 11-incher. There’s 4GB of DDR3 memory with Intel’s own HD Graphics 3000 on the side and Sony reckons you’ll be able eke out up to nine hours from its SSD model. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI output, and USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports.
