TECH:Sony Unveils Vaio TT Laptops: Blu-Ray Included

Sony has taken the covers off of the latest in their VAIO series of notebook computers. The VAIO TT Series of notebooks will be the worlds lightest Blu-ray capable computers available on the market. Sony’s goal with the TT series seems to be focused on packing a lot of power into an ultra portable device. Weighing in at only 2.87 pounds and being less than an inch thick, the new series of VAIO notebooks isn’t just about looks. Behind the carbon fiber shell (yes, seriously), you can find an Intel Centrino 2 processor and an optional dual channel 256GB (2 x 128GB) solid state drive with RAID technology. If the 11.1 inch 16:9 LED display is a little too small for you, there’s also an HDMI output so you can connect the notebook to your HD television of choice and watch your Blu-ray movies in full 1080p high definition.

To round it all off and offer you some connectivity on the go, the device also integrates with Sprint’s Wide Area Network, though a separate subscription, through Sprint, is required. With all this power and grace, there’s also a sizable price tag. The TT series of VAIO notebooks will start off at $2000 US, though the inclusion of Blu-ray will raise the price to $2700 and the optional SSD drive will raise the price even high than that. If you have the money, then all you have to do is worry about which color to buy. The TT series will be available in premium carbon black, silk black, champagne gold and crimson red.
