VAIO has introduced the SX12 VJS125 series, an update on the 12.5-inch ultrabook that it last refreshed in late 2021. The new VAIO SX12 is available with a choice of Intel Alder Lake processors, including the Core i7-1280P and 32 GB of RAM. The VAIO SX12 will begin shipping in Japan from next month.

VAIO has upgraded the SX12, an ultrabook that it last refreshed in October 2021. Predictably, VAIO has brought the laptop up to Intel Alder Lake processors, having introduced the Core i7-1195G7 to the machine last year. According to VAIO's website, the SX12 will be available with the Celeron 7305 to the Core i7-1260P. However, the company has also announced the SX12 All Black Edition, which relies on the Core i7-1280P.

Additionally, the SX12 All Black Edition is the only model configurable with a 5G modem. Conversely, all SX12 configurations feature the same 12.5-inch and 16:9 display, which operates at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels with an anti-glare finish. Likewise, all SX12 configurations measure 287.8 x 205 x 15~ 17.9 mm, but weight varies between 899 g and 950 g, depending on the configuration. Also, the SX12 is configurable with 8 GB to 32 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB of PCIe Gen4 storage. Unfortunately, the machine's RAM is not upgradable.

The VAIO SX12 VJS125 is already orderable in Japan, where it is available in five colours. While the entry-level model starts at JPY 159,800 (~US$1,185), the SX12 is highly configurable and upgrading to the Core i7-1260P from the Celeron 7305 costs JPY 54,500 (~US$404) alone. So far, VAIO has confirmed that the SX12 VJS125 series will begin shipping next month in Japan; there are no details yet about an international release.
