With all eyes on Sony’s new Xperia Z and ZL smartphones back at CES, many of us didn’t even bother with the company’s latest Vaio ultrabooks. Granted, Sony wasn’t too keen on grabbing our attention either, showing off the touch-enabled T14 and T15, but revealing very little about their specs, pricing and availability.
But now the pieces of the puzzle are starting to fall into place and we have to say Sony has gotten our curiosity. Both ultrabooks have been confirmed to come to Japan in February (on the 9th, to be exact), but we’re pretty certain they’ll see daylight outside Asia soon too.
Out of the duo, the T15 seems to be the laptop with the most potential, equipped with a 15.5-inch 1,920 x 1,080 pix res display and a 2 GHz Intel Core i7 CPU. There’s also a Blu-Ray Disc Drive, hybrid HDD/SSD storage options and up to 8 GB of RAM, so everything sounds dreamy.
Meanwhile, the T14 takes a slight step down hardware-wise while still rocking a 1.8 GHz Core i5 processor, up to 8 gigs of RAM, HDD and SSDs, and a DVD Super Multi Drive. The 14-inch panel sounds like the biggest downgrade, as it only boasts a run-of-the-mill 1,366 x 768 pixels resolution.
Of course, both ultrabooks run Windows 8 Pro out of the box, while pricing is unfortunately still kept under wraps.
