Sony VAIO Docking, Chrome OS Notebooks: MacBook Pro Rivals

If you’re in the market for a new notebook but are completely blown away with the current amount already out there, then sit down and chill out, as there are 2 new devices from Sony on the horizon. Although the 2 are currently not available to buy at the present time, they are tipped to launch during the summer.

What makes these 2 notebooks special from the big Sony, is that the first reported from Sonyinsider will be a “VAIO Hybrid PC” which in appearance includes a neat thin Core i7 design weighing in at approximately 2.5 pounds, with the inclusion of a docking station, Intel WiDi, SSD storage, HDMI, 8 to 16.5 hours of battery life and impressively Intel’s Thunderbolt or Light Peak Technology as its known to others, something of which Apple have taken on with their new MacBook Pro models.

If we revert back to the docking station and what this has to offer you, then as Slashgear stated, you will be happy to learn that if you’re stationary, the device will have an external graphics card of a AMD Whister-XT 1GB GPU which as Zdnet stated, will probably be a Radeon HD 6730M or Radeon HD 6770M, HDMI and VGA outputs, Blu-ray burner, ethernet and USB ports with a unit weight of 0.68kg.

If for some of you the Chrome OS version which can be compared to Google’s Cr-48 laptop spec sheet, which coincidentally is based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 is ticking the boxes for you, then you will pleased to know for your pennies you can expect to get: a 11.6-inch display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, WWAN, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

Give us your thoughts on Sony’s 2 new notebooks? Is there one where you would be happy to part with your cash?
