Sony just released the new VAIO TT notebook, which is pretty substantial update to the older TZ model. Offering HDMI output, dual SSD options with RAID, an internal Blu-ray, and a much needed processor refresh this model is ready to take anything you throw at it. While it does seem slightly bulkier than the super thin TZ, we can’t complain much considering it still weighs less than 3lbs and is still under an inch thick.
- Intel SU9300 and SU9400 Core 2 Duo processors clocking in at 1.2 GHz and 1.4 GHz
- Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
- Intel X4500MHD Integrated Graphics
- 11.1″ 1366 x 768 LED Backlit XBRITE Display
- Up to 4GB of DDR3 Memory
- 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0
- DVD-R and BD-R capabilities on upper models (some are only BR-ROM)
- Sprint WWAN Rev A
- Dimensions: 10.99″ x 0.93″ x 7.87″
- Weight: 2.87lbs
Prices start at $2,000 for models not equipped with a Blu-ray drive, but if you really want the full package you are looking at a minimum of $2,700. I can’t wait to get one of the new Sony VAIO TT subnotebooks in the office to play around with, considering it is in the same size range as many netbooks, but has the capabilities to output 1080p from a Blu-Ray movie. Look for this model in stores sometime this fall.
