As far as laptops go, the Sony VAIOs offer a touch of style as well as catering for the different specs you’d need from a computer. Now a month after announcing their latest series, they are to make the VAIO S ultraportables available for pre-order.

Measuring in at 13.3” these laptops aren’t the biggest that money can buy but they offer the very top specs you would expect from a new line of products. The thing that makes this series so unique from the others is the new ‘slice’ battery.

When paired with this VAIO it offers an extra 9.5 hours more than the standard battery runtime. That’s 15 hours of battery life before having to recharge. As Slashgear reports, this is sold separately and will cost $150.

The lowest spec VAIO S comes with a Core i3-380M processor but also offers the higher processors from Intel, Core i5-480M and Core i5-580M. It also has 512MB worth of NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics memory in addition to the integrated Intel HD GPU.

The new line of laptops from Sony will cost from $874.99 and are expected to start shipping this month.
