The New Sony VAIO® T Series
Introducing the Sony VAIO® T Series
The summer 2012 lineup has arrived and the Vaio laptop getting the most attention is the new T Series. With a chic aluminum lid the T Series resembles the exterior of the metal framed MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Besides the combination of its trendy look with high performance, the best feature of the Vaio T Series may be its extremely reasonable price starting at just $742.00. Similar to the S Series, the T Series is offered with either an i5 or i7 Intel processor. There is also an option of a spacious SATA hard drive or a fast solid state hard drive; however the solid state models are more expensive. Although the resolution is strong (1366 x 768 on 13” displays), the onboard Intel HD graphics may keep this notebook from being adequate for gaming. Due to its light weight aluminum lid, the Vaio T Series is only 3.54 lbs and has sufficient portability. The T Series comes with a built in HD webcam that has face tracking technology which can even allow a user to control specific applications with gestures. It also is equipped with a multi-gesture buttonless touchpad like the one seen below:
The smooth touchpad can be tapped anywhere to replace the click of a button which provides a more accurate navigation of the cursor just like that of the MacBook Pro.
Although it may not quite reach the performance level for gaming, the T Series still executes above average. With these technical specifications, the luxurious looking aluminum lid, the ultraportable weight, and the affordability, the T Series results in a very practical notebook.
