Sony announces ‘world’s lightest’ Ultrabooks: Vaio Pro 11 and 13

On the sidelines of Computex, Sony has unveiled a series of new products, including two ultrabooks very upscale and very light, called Vaio Pro 11 and 13.

The Japanese manufacturer also took the opportunity to present its hybrid notebook called Sony Vaio Duo 13 and two Vaio Fit and Fit E, the most impressive touch notebooks appear on the scale of 14 and 15.5 inches. The most interesting announcements concerned, however, was Vaio Pro 11 and 13, two ultrabooks of 11 and 13 inches announced by Sony as being the lightest in the world. It must be said that only 870 grams for the 11-inch model and 1.06 kg for the 13-inch model, Sony has hit hard. The use of carbon fiber is obviously not foreign for this relief. However, it is feared that Sony has also trimmed the battery capacity to reduce the mass, and therefore those of its phones.

However, the manufacturer is reassuring and not only announcing respective autonomies of 14 and 13 hours for both models, but also additional batteries to extend the range to 18 and 25 hours. Figures that should be verified during the next tests.

Both ultrabooks measure 17.2 mm thick, board a screen composed of an IPS Full HD display and a data sheet quite similar to each other: low consumption Haswell processor Core i5-4200U or Core i7-4500U ( for Vaio Pro 13) and NFC (TPM Pro for Windows versions) chip, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11n Wi-Fi for connectivity, memory card reader, HDMI output and two USB 3.0 ports.



You will notice the absence of such products for a 3G/4G module. It welcomes, however, the presence of a backlit chiclet keyboard or the charger converts a Wi-Fi access via an adapter that connects to an Ethernet jack points.

The differences between the two notebooks: 4 GB of RAM and an SSD of 128GB or 256GB for the 11-inch model, against 8GB DDR3 and SSD of 256GB or 512GB for 13 inches model. Note that Sony plans to offer a version of its mobile touch.
