Sony has announced a coupon of new Ultrabook additions to its lineup, the VAIO T11 and T13. The T11 is an 11-inch screen laptop while the T13 has a 13-inch screen. Initially both of these models will be available with the last generation Intel Sandy Bridge processor, specifically the Core i3-2367m. The 13-inch model will weigh in at 3.5lbs, that’s impressive considering the notebook is made of magnesium and aluminum metal for durability. Disappointingly the screen resolution will be a low 1366 x 768 on both models. Storage will come in the form of a hard drive / SSD hybrid combination. The hard drive will be a 320GB capacity variety while the SSD will have 32GB of space.
Sony is targeting the VAIO T series at business professionals and students, not that those two crowds are the same types but rather they figure both will need a light laptop with long battery life. The claimed battery life is up to 9 hours.
Ports include HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, SD card reader, VGA monitor out, Ethernet port and headphone port. That’s a whole lot more selection relative to other Ultrabooks, Sony deserves kudos on this front. The keyboard will have a chiclet style design and the touchpad like a MacBook, one big pad with integrated buttons at the bottom. Availability for both models should be later this month.
