Sony Vaio T ultrabook slims down on price Video Transcript
I am Scott Stein and its ultra -- season that's right Intel has announced its latest third generation. Core I series processors. And -- behold lots of manufacturers are trotting out their latest ultra books. In fact a lot of manufacturers. That had -- ultra books before are introducing -- now. Such as Sony. Who -- debuted the bio key. Now does is look familiar it should in fact it looks a bit like -- -- -- or. Of Vaio -- This has been around for awhile. As last year's Sony by busy and it's their top of the line super lightweight super fast laptop in quite expensive to. Now the -- -- steals a lot of that design and is nearly the same size but it costs a lot less this is 799. When you're getting those that lower voltage. Core I five processor now is a third generation so it's a little bit of bump up in terms of speed. Little better multitasking. It's got better integrated graphics than last year. What's also interesting about these new ultra books is that instead of it -- You're getting 500 gigabyte hybrid hard drive here and what that means -- you're getting 32 gigabyte SSD. In addition to the 500 gigabyte hard drive which provides some faster speeds and access but also means more storage and the funny thing is -- right now. A lot of laptops are offering that 500 gigabyte hard drive. For less money more storage less money. Maybe slightly faster speeds but it seems a pretty good compromise right now and it helps his laptop in -- at 799. Now seven and -- -- not sheep for a laptop but it's pretty cheap for Sony Vaio which usually ten debt -- the top of the market. It's also the entry price last year for the Sony Vaio -- here's -- gets a bit tricky because Sony. Makes thin laptops -- some companies have never made a really thin laptop and an ultra book is their chance to show off. Now in this instance this is pretty similar in size to -- as well and the -- got an optical drive dvd drive and sometimes got integrated. And dedicated graphics and -- -- getting pretty confusing now rate. That's the whole thing. This line is getting a little bit confusing. What you're getting here is no optical drive you're getting that core I thought the five -- gigabyte hard drive. Integrated graphics. And it's pretty portable 3.4 pounds thicker than a MacBook Air but about the same size. It's a pretty nice system. Good battery life by. This keyboard is really shallow I mean really shallow Noble's -- it's been painted on. I'm it's not -- you know that's sort of the same as the vice disease keyboard. So if you've seen that before. You see -- here now. From the track pad however -- a lot bigger quantities that's -- I'm Scott Stein and that's a look at Sony's new ultra book.
Sony's ultra-svelte Vaio X laptop is amazingly thin and light, even if the price will give you a serious case of sticker shock.
Get a first look at Sony's new notebook in action.
Dan Ackerman takes a first look at a green netbook made from recyclable materials, the Sony Vaio W.
The Sony VAIO UX is one of the best tiny tablets we've seen, but its high price, poor battery life, and less-than-ideal typing experience keep it from being a home run.
The great-looking, versatile Sony VAIO V505 is a top thin-and-light for work or play, although it's not the fastest on the block.
Sony's small but versatile 11.6-inch AMD Fusion laptop is Netbook-like but more powerful, and a compelling alternative to more expensive Ultrabooks.
Sony's revamped Vaio S series laptops have slimmed down, but still offer plenty of high-end features, creating an affordable alternative to the attractive-but-expensive Vaio Z.
Sony makes some of the best-looking multimedia laptops out there, and the 3D Vaio F215FX is no exception. But you'll have to be willing to pay extra for that sharp design.
Get a first look from the Labs at the Sony VAIO RC310G desktop computer, which includes a Blu-ray DVD drive.
We like the idea of a Blu-ray-equipped all-in-one with a small footprint for home entertainment, but Sony badly missed the mark with the Vaio J114FX. In trying to make this system focused, Sony cut too many features. The result is that this PC is a terrible value relative to other all-in-ones in its price range.
Sony Vaio T Series SVT13112FXS Review
The good: The Vaio T is an affordable, slim Sony laptop that shares a lot in common with the design of the Vaio Z, and comes with all the ports and features you'd need, plus a larger hard drive.
The bad: The screen isn't the best we've seen on a Vaio, and a horribly shallow nonbacklit keyboard is uncomfortable.
The bottom line: Sony's first ultrabook, the Vaio T, doesn't fall far from the tree of other thin Sony laptops like the Vaio Z, but it's far more affordable: this is ultrabook-as-budget-laptop, not ultrabook as high-end computer.
