New Sony Vaio S Series Laptops review

New Sony Vaio S Series Laptops review
A new 13.3-inch ultraportable laptop from Sony has recently entered the market. Called the VAIO S Series, the system sports a 13.3-inch 1366 x 768 or 1600 x 900 LED-backlight display, an Intel Core i5-2410M/2520M or Core i7-2620M processor, an AMD Radeon HD 6470M 512MB or AMD Radeon HD6630M 1GB graphics card, up to 8GB DDR3 RAM, up to 640GB HDD or 512GB/1TB SSD, an HD webcam a DVD or Blu-ray drive, an SD card slot, WiFi, Bluetooth, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port and runs on Windows 7 OS.

The latest Sony Vaio S Series laptop is boasting a battery life of 15 hours but that is of course only when you partner it with a sheet battery - and with SSD configurations. The new SA Series comes encased in a magnesium-and-aluminum alloy and comes in burnished brown, jet black or platinum silver. Measuring only 24mm in height and weighing 1.7kg, the SA Series boasts some impressive specs. The SA model comes with Intel’s second generation Core i7 processor and combined with a AMD Radeon HD 6630 1GB Hybrid Graphics card (select models), it should provide enough grunt on the move for most users. Also included is a 13.3in display with a resolution of 1600 x 900, a 500GB HDD, fingerprint reader and Blu-ray drive. There is also the option to upgrade to a dual channel SSD, which as we said will improve battery time further. Starting at $1,350 and going up to $1,650 for an SSD-touting model, the SA Series ain’t cheap.New Sony Vaio S Series Laptops reviewAlso launched today is the Vaio SB series which comes at a lower price but as you’d expect also with less impressive specs. For $999 you’ll get 512MB of video RAM (compared to 1GB with the SA), a 1366 x 768 resolution display, DVD player and a Core i5 Sandy Bridge processor – though it is possible to upgrade to the more powerful i7 processor. And just in case you don’t like the classy-looking burnished brown or platinum silver of the SA series, then you can get the SB series in pink or navy.New Sony Vaio S Series Laptops review"Users these days want a laptop that will last for hours without charging, is small and light enough to carry around with you but doesn't sacrifice any of the performance and power that you'd find in a full-sized PC," said Mike Lucas, senior vice president of Networked Technology and Services Division at Sony Electronics. "You can fly nonstop from Los Angeles to Tokyo or attend a full day of classes on just one charge with this S Series laptop when combined with the optional sheet battery."[]
Price starts at $999.99.
