Remember the Vaio T11 and T13 that Sony launched back in March of 2012? It seems the company has now decided to add two new Ultrabooks to its T Series of thin and light laptops, called Vaio T14 and Vaio T15. Both models are fully customizable, run on Microsoft’s Windows 8 (Pro) OS and are now available to customers for purchase with a starting price of $769.99.
These newly introduced Sony Ultrabooks have an aluminium and magnesium alloy chassis and can be powered by up to an Ivy Bridge (third-gen) Intel Core i7-3537U ultra-low voltage chip. The ULV processor houses two cores running at 2.0GHz (up to 3.1GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 technology) and the Intel HD 4000 video card. According to the manufacturer, the smaller T14 model sports a 14-inch high-definition touchscreen panel, whereas the T15 comes equipped with a 15.5-inch, Full HD (1920-by-1080 pixels) LED-backlit touch display.
Under the hood, both ultraportable notebooks feature mechanical hard drives with a storage capacity of up to 1TB, a 24GB SSD for fast boot and resume times, 4/6- to 8GB of internal DDR3 1600MHz RAM and either a DVD Burner or a Blu-ray drive.
Other specs apparently include HDMI and USB 3.0 connectivity, an illuminated keyboard, Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth radios, an SD card reader slot, 6-cell battery and a built-in web camera.
