The brand new Sony Vaio computer to indicate! The primary significant trade is aesthetic as a result of it sounds as if the Jap had determined to adapt its excessive-finish body (or an in depth spinoff) to most of its vary of Vaio laptops. A greater than welcome as a result of two years in the past that Sony had no longer viewed the deep physique of its PCs they usually wanted a little bit of novelty. Keyboard chiclet , much less rounded types, matte end inside of and out of doors, 2.5 cm thick for the Y sequence … Anyway, good machines.
Collection Y: Intel or AMD
Y Series Vaio is delimited small 11.6-inch laptops.
With the Y series, Sony offers us two configurations with 11.6-inch screen that slip easily into any briefcase or backpack. Weighing less than 1.5 kg including battery, these new PCs will include both Intel and AMD platforms and their selling price should be between 500 and 800 euros. These tiny Vaio should be marketed from the end of February 2011 in France. On paper, the first two references are worth visiting.
The Vaio YA (VPCYA1V9E / B) configuration is Intel thinking for professionals (64-bit Windows 7 Professional) sold 800 euros. It includes an Intel Core 380UM i3-low power (maximum power of 18 watts), 4 GB of DDR3 and 500 GB hard drive. To optimize the life of the battery on this little 11.6-inch, Sony uses the integrated graphics processor for display. The connection is complete (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB, HDMI), but we regret that there i
s at least one USB 3.0 port.
THERE are under the Vaio Intel platform, the Vaio YB embarking from AMD.
Sony has recently adopted the AMD components in its range, it is not surprising that the series also includes a Y configuration (VPCYB1S1E / S) with one of the new Fusion chips, the E-350, and a chip Radeon HD 6310 . The processor is supported by 2 GB of DDR3 memory and a 320 GB hard drive Again, no USB 3.0 because the chassis is identical, but the rest of the equipment described above is maintained. The advertised price is 500 euros, a very aggressive pricing policy in line with other manufacturers choosing the new AMD platform.
Vaio F series: 3D mobile almost by Sony
The portable Sony 3D arrived in France late February.
Briefly mentioned at IFA 2010 the Sony portable 3D (VPCF21Z1E/BI) has finally announced officially. Its design is also unusual for a Sony Vaio. The touchpad is embedded in what appears to be a wrist rest and the frame of the machine seems to be slightly tilted forward. The 16-inch screen offers a definition of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a refresh rate sufficient to display Full HD content in 3D thanks to Blu-ray and a Sony technology based on 3D Vision Nvidia. It is also possible to use the conversion on the fly 2D/3D simply pressing a key on the keyboard. The active glasses are obviously supplied (a pair, a priori).
The engine of the machine is architected around Sandy Bridge processor Intel Core i7-2630QM, 8 GB of memory and an Nvidia GT 540M(1GB DDR3): enough to play the latest video games quite comfortably but not always in 3D. Conclude with the equipment of this big machine: Wi-Fi module, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0 and 5.1 audio system enhanced to bring justice to soundtracks and video games.
