Sony launches VAIO T Ultrabook, starts at Php47,999

Last week we saw Sony’s VAIO T Series of notebooks which they don’t like to call as Ultrabooks but has specs and features fitting one. The Sony VAIO T comes in 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch model.

I guess the reason why Sony won’t classify it as an Ultrabook because it generally doesn’t look like one. Comparing to other Ultrabooks out in the market, the VAIO T is the thick and slightly heavier brother. It’s definitely not unappealing though with it’s edgy look and brushed metal finish with chrome accents but I was expecting more from Sony.

I was hoping that they build on the VAIO Z’s design which is still their slimmest and sleekest notebook to date. The VAIO T does come with full ports and connectivity (HDMI, VGA, LAN) on the sides though which we can’t say for other Ultrabooks out there.

Classifications aside, the Sony VAIO T functions as an Ultrabook. It’s powered by an ultra-low voltage 3rd generation Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB memory, and a 320GB HDD | 32GB SSD hybrid storage system which marries both the capacity and speed of both storage types in one machine.

The keyboard has that nice tactile feedback due to the thickness but it’s not backlit. It does have a wide touchpad which accepts a variety of multi-touch gestures. Rounding up the feature list is a 1.3-megapixel camera with Sony’s Exmor R lens which illuminates the subject even in the dark.

Perhaps the most surprising feature of the Sony VAIO T is its retail price. The 11.6-inch retails for Php47,999 while the 13.3-inch goes for Php49,999 which is quite affordable for a Sony laptop.

    looks like a regular lappy to me… but that low price is surely not a VAIO price. good that they’re considering lowering their prices now.
