Also showcases new lineup of 2012 Vaio notebooks.
Press Release: Sony today announced the unveiling of its thin, light and portable VAIO T-series Ultrabook. Smartly styled in tough magnesium and aluminium and loaded with the latest technologies from Sony and Intel, the T-series offers the perfect blend of durability and performance. Available in 11.6-inch or 13.3-inch screen sizes, the VAIO T-Series Ultrabook boasts impressive productivity using the latest-generation Ultra Low Voltage Intel® Core™ processors and ultra-fast SSD flash drives.
With the new Rapid Wake technology that will be available across the new summer line up, the user won’t need to shut down his unit. Additionally one can resume the VAIO T Series from sleep mode even after 30 days owing to long battery life. The VAIO T series also ensures that data security isn’t compromised. The VAIO T-series comes with full featured connectivity and a generous complement of interfaces including HDMI, VGA and RJ45 network ports plus an SD/MMC media slot. A light and portable laptop, it is equipped with Sony’s exclusive xLOUDTM and Clear PhaseTM sound technologies that boost volume levels without distortion for crisp and clear web chats, video clips and games.
VAIO S Series provides the latest technologies needed for full mobile computing. Overall high performance is assured with the third generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor, as well as a Dynamic Hybrid Graphics System that uses two graphics processors to best suit the application being run; either a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 640M LE GPU with dedicated VRAM or integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4000. Furthermore, Dynamic Hybrid Graphics System with NVIDIA OPTIMUS Technology switches seamlessly between SPEED mode for faster performance and STAMINA mode for longer battery life. Solid State Drive (SSD) provides high-speed data storage and retrieval.
Available in four colour variations including black, silver, pink and white, the PC is crafted to be carried in comfort. It weighs just 1.59 kg and measures a slim 22.8 mm with a full-flat body featuring a carbon lid. The material is lighter than aluminium and offers enough durability for people on the go. The hexa-shell edge design provides the essential lightness and rigidity to the body to increase the PC’s mobility, while adding a unique character to its appearance. The new VAIO S-series is available in either a 13.3-inch LCD, or a full-size 15.5-inch LCD equipped with a numeric keypad. Overall, the VAIO S-series is the full featured mobile PC with powerful performance.
The New VAIO Z-series, top of the line in the VAIO line, is the 15th anniversary edition released by Sony VAIO and is available with “15th Anniversary Collector’s Edition – Made in Azumino, Japan” engraved on the hinge. The ‘full flat’ body of the VAIO Z-series measures just 330mm x 210mm, and is a mere 16.7mm thick. Weighing barely more than a kilogram, the VAIO Z is thinner and lighter than a standard Ultrabook. Constructed from premium grade carbon fibre in a hexa-shell design, the result is an extremely thin, light and durable computer that delivers lightning-fast performance. The notebook is equipped with a high-resolution full High Definition 13.1-inch display with anti-reflective glossy finish.
The new VAIO Z-series also comes with the super powerful Intel® Core i7 quad core CPU, which is usually used in large-screen notebooks or a desktop PC. The processor enhances the performance of the VAIO Z-series by up to 70 per cent as compared to a dual core CPU. The VAIO Z is the ideal addition to a premium collection. It is truly ‘Beyond the Ultimate.’
Both the VAIO S-series and VAIO Z-series are embedded with the xLOUDTM and Clear PhaseTM audio technologies that switch to Dolby® Home Theatre® V4 for rich, cinema-style audio via speakers or headphones.
The VAIO T-series & S Series will be available across leading electronics retailers in the Middle East from mid June 2012. The new Z series is expected to be available from mid-July.
