Smaller and Lighter than Ever – New Sony Vaio Y Series

Japan just got its own “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!” sequel, it’s called “Honey, We Just Shrunk the Sony Vaio Y Series!”. And like any good anime or game titles, Japan gets to hold it first while the rest of the world wait drooling in anticipation. What’s there not to get excited about? Sony just managed to slash off a few inches and a few pounds on their Vaio Y series without cutting out on the specs. The new Y-series just got trimmed down to a mere 11.6 inches from 13.3, and it now only weighs roughly around 1.3 kg. The best part is that it gets to keep its 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium OS, 1.33 GHz Core i3-380UM processor, 2 GB of RAM, 320 GB hard drive, Intel HD graphics, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and webcam. It’s a tall order and borders on the insulting to call the new Y-series a netbook especially when it has all the makings of a fully pledged laptop bonus the scaled down size.

The 11.6-inch LED display manages to squeeze in 1366×768 resolution that perfectly complements the smaller screen. Sony also managed to add their signature chiclet keyboard. The other features that come standard with the new Vaio Y Series are gigabit LAN, USB slots, integrated card reader, and HDMI output for easily sharing multimedia contents over HDTV. Basic configuration can operate for 6 hours on raw battery power which is pretty standard. Getting an extended battery can push the power up to 11 hours but it adds to the overall weight of the laptop. No words yet on international availability but it should be well worth the wait.
