Sony has added a new notebook to its vaio lineup today that falls into that portable category. It is called the Vaio S series. The notebook features a magnesium frame and weighs just 3.8 pounds. The profile is just under an inch thick and it has a battery good for 7.5 hours per charge. It is also the first notebook to have a sheet battery that fits on the bottom and promises to double the running time.
The 13.3-inch screen features a resolution of 1366 x 768 and it can be fitted with an Intel Core i7 CPU at 2.7GHz. Storage is up to 750GB and a 250GB SSD is optional. There is also up to 8GB of RAM and a Radeon HD 6630M GPU inside with hybrid graphics. Pricing starts at $969.99.
