Sony has been a bit late coming into the Ultrabook game. In part, I think it is because its Sony Vaio S series is pretty much almost an Ultrabook with a less than 1 inch thickness and 3.8 pounds in weight. Building lower cost Ultrabooks will directly compete with its Vaio S. But Sony showed off an Ultrabook a month ago, the T13, and now it is priced.
The Sony Vaio T13 features a 13.3 inch display with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, a 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5-3317u processor, and a 320GB hard drive with a 32 GB SSD, all for a very reasonable asking price of US$799. This gives us hope that it will comes in at Php40,000 to Php45,000, once it hits the local shelves.
The Sony Vaio T13 has a brushed aluminum lid with a plastic and magenssium allow for the rest of the case. The case follows the design similar to its S and Z series siblings. The Sony Vaio T13 is 0.71 inches thick and weighs in a 3.4 pounds. An 11.6-inch version will also be released.
I hope this thing is offered in black.
