Sony's announces a its lightweight VAIO TT notebooks

When it comes to the next generation of thin and light notebooks, Apple's MacBook Air along with Lenovo's ThinkPad X300 and X200 series notebooks have been getting all of the attention. Sony is looking to turn a few heads of its own with its new lightweight, ultra-thin VAIO TT Series notebooks.

The VAIO TT uses a carbon-fiber chassis and a sharp 11.1" (1366 x 768), LED-backlit XBRITE-DuraView LCD screen with 100% color saturation. Due to its lightweight and compact construction, the VAIO TT weighs in at a mere 2.87 pounds and is just 1-inch thick.

As if its slim and trim design weren't enough, Sony is also using Intel's new Montevina platform. Processing power comes from an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor SU9400 running at 1.4GHz while the machine is backed with 4GB of PC3-6400 memory. The graphics subsystem is built around an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD which can share up to 1.3GB of system memory. An HDMI port is included for HD output to a television or widescreen monitor.

Networking options abound with the new VAIO TT. The notebook comes with a built-in GbE port, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Intel WiFi Link 5100AGN, and a Sprint Mobile Broadband card is available as an option.

When it comes to storage, the notebook can be equipped with dual 128GB SSDs running in RAID-0 mode or an optional Blu-ray drive.

"This engineering marvel packs the power of HD technology into an ultra-light, ultra-portable notebook," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing at Sony Electronics.

Sony's VAIO TT starts at $2,000 with a 160GB HDD and DVD burner while stepping up to the model with built-in Blu-ray will set you back $2,700. Going for the VAIO TT will a single 128GB SSD rings up at $2,750. Opting for dual SSDs will likely push the price well into the $3,000 range.
