Sony today announced updates for VAIO E, VAIO S and VAIO Z series laptops. The E Series will get two new laptops with larger 15.5-inch and 17.3-inch screens. Both the laptops will have last generation Intel Core i5-2450M processor, AMD Radeon 7650M graphics, up to 750GB hard drive, built in webcam, USB 3.0, HDMI, Bluetooth and WiFi. The main difference between the two laptops is the screen, the 15.5-inch model has 1366 x 768 resolution screen and the 17.3-inch model has 1600 x 900 resolution screen (there is option of selecting Full HD screen also).
The new VAIO S Series now comes in 13.3-inch and 15.5-inch screen sizes, and is made out of materials like magnesium, aluminum and carbon fiber. The laptops feature new 3rd generation Intel Core i5 and i7m processors, NVIDIA GeForce GT640M LE graphics, anti-reflective VAIO Display Plus, slot-in optical drive (Blu-ray optional), up to 1TB hard drive, WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI, USB 3.0 and optional 4G LTE/3G WWAN. Both the 13.3-inch and 15.5-inch models weigh less than 4.5 pounds and offer up to 14 hours battery life with optional sheet battery.
The Ultrathin and powerful VAIO Z Series also get Ivy bridge treatment with new Core i7 processor. The 0.7-inch thick laptop features 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics, optional Power Media Dock with Optical drive, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G/LTE support and USB 3.0. VAIO Z’s tough “hexashell” design is crafted with superlight carbon fiber and aluminum resulting in less than 2.6 pounds weight. And like the slightly heavier S Series the VAIO Z can also offer 14 hours battery life with optional sheet battery.
New VAIO E Series 15 and 17 is available in a choice of white, black or (E Series 15 only) silver color finishes for a starting price of $459, but if you go for slightly decent configuration the price will jump over $700. No word on when the new VAIO S and VAIO Z Series will ship or pricing.
