The New Sony Vaio With Google Chrome OS

Sony is working on a hybrid (two component) laptop that will feature Intel Thunderbolt technology (previously named “Light Peak”). Thunderbolt is the same interface that MacBook Pros currently use.
The device comes equipped with an Intel Wireless Display, Solid State Drive, Intel i7 processor, HDMI ouput with 3D support, and a battery life of up to 16.5 hours. Sony claims the laptop will weigh around 2.5 pounds. So what is that “second component”, previously mentioned? Sony tells us that the mysterious second component will feature:

• Discrete GPU (AMD Whistler-XT with 1 GB VRAM)
• Blu-ray disc (reader/writer) drive
• HDMI Output
• VGA Output
• RJ45 Ethernet port

Weighing at around 1.5 pounds, the new VAIO will feature Google’s Chrome Operating System. Here are some tech specs of the gorgeous machine:

• Nvidia Tegra 2 (250) platform
• 11.6″ (1366×768) LCD display
• 1 GB of Memory
• 16 GB eMMC (electronic multimedia card)
• Ultra-low power GeForce GPU
• Wireless WAN
• Wide Keyboard (18mm) will be pretty similar to the Google Chrome Cr-48 laptop keyboard
• Dimensions: less than an inch thick at around 19.9 mm; width is at 11.7″ (298 mm) and it is 21.5 cm (8.46″) deep

This notebook will be great for you on-the-go users who need technology that is portable and capable of handling computing needs of our era. This machine will be available in Summer 2011.
