Sony intros ultralight Blu-ray notebook

By on
Sony today unveiled the Vaio TT Series notebook, an ultraportable line that packs a Blu-ray disc player, weighs less than three pounds, and is less than an inch thick. Ironically, the high-def benefits of this system are largely lost due to its tiny 11-inch screen, but it does come with an HDMI-out connector so users can plug into a larger display and enjoy a true HD resolution of 1,080p.

The Vaio TT runs on an Intel Centrino 2 processor and comes (depending on the model) with up to two RAID-capable 128GB solid-state drives for a total of 256GB of storage. It also comes with a choice of WIndows Vista or XP, up to 4 GB of RAM, an integrated webcam, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, 802.11a/b/g/n wireless networking, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and an integrated card reader.

As you might expect, this little wonder won’t come in cheap. Pricing on the Vaio TT series starts at around $2,100 but quickly scales up to well over $3,000 depending on the configuration. The notebooks will be available in black, champagne, and red through Sony’s online store.
