VAIO has refreshed the SX14, a 14-inch ultrabook that retains the company's outdated design. The VAIO SX14 VJS145 features a choice of Intel Alder Lake processors and 1080p or 4K display options, plus up to 2 TB of storage and 32 GB of RAM. An international launch is pending, currently.

VAIO has presented the SX14 VJS145, an Intel Alder Lake-based upgrade on the company's existing 14-inch ultrabook. Like the SX12 VJS125, the SX14 VJS145 is available as an All Black Edition, which includes the Core i7-1280P and 5G connectivity. All configurations measure 320.4 x 229.9 x 13.3~17.9 mm and weigh at least 1.046 kg, though.

According to VAIO's website, the regular SX14 VJS145 is available with the Celeron 7305 to Core i7-1260P, plus 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB of soldered LPDDR4X RAM. Additionally, the laptop is available with a 256 GB to 2 TB SSD that appears to be replaceable. Elsewhere, the SX14 VJS145 has an HDMI port, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, dual USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a Gigabit Ethernet port, plus a 3.5 mm jack and stereo speakers.

Separately, VAIO only equips Core i7 versions of the SX14 VJS145 with a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) display. Alternatively, the laptop comes with a 1080p panel; both operate at 60 Hz; VAIO does not describe how bright the panels get, mind you. Unfortunately, VAIO has not confirmed a global launch for the SX14 VJS145 yet. For context, the SX14 VJS145 starts at JPY 159,800 (~US$1,185) in Japan, price matching the entry-level SX12 VJS125.
