Sony has not been in the laptop scene of late, and it seems that for now the company is concentrating hard on its notebooks. Electronista reports of a couple of long due upgrades of two of its most popular notebooks namely the Vaio S and Vaio F.
The 13.3” Vaio S has been upgraded with a high-resolution 1600 x 900 pixels resolution. This resolution is generally reserved for much larger desktops, so the 13” screen is expected to become much brighter. We just hope things don’t look too small and thus become illegible when set to highest resolution. Another important customization to the Vaio S is the option of solid state drives that should make the system much faster now. You can get one for $1350.
The Vaio F has been given the Core i7 advantage by default, along with a choice of either a GeForce GT 520M or the 540M graphics card. Sony gives the Vaio F a full HD 1080p screen as well plus virtual surround audio from S-Force and support for linking the VAIO F to a PS3 as a remote input device. The Vaio F costs $1100.
