European Vendors Release VAIO SA and SB Specs
While Sony hasn’t officially announced their newest notebook line, it is well assumed that when they do it will be known as the S Series. Latest reports from European Vendors seem to confirm this and also fill us in and the high end features included.
If the info is true the higher-end SA edition will feature a Core i7-2620M, 4GB DDR3 Memory, an AMD HD 6630 graphics card, and a 128 GB dual SSD. Interestingly enough, the i7-2620M has a scheduled February 20th launch by Intel; so that may provide a clue as to when the SA will be released.
On the other hand, the tamer SB Notebook is built around the Core i5-2410M, an AMD HD 6470M graphics card, 4 GB of DDR3 and only a 500GB regular hard drive. Both Notebooks weigh close to 1.5kg, and feature a 13” screen with a 1600X900 resolution; unfortunately, the option for a Blu-Ray player doesn’t seem to be included.
As of yet the starting price for the SA series is close to $2,500 while the SB series should set you back by around $1,500. Unfortunately, an exact release date is not known, but it should come to light soon enough.
