Sony VAIO SA and SB: Laptop Refresh Specs and Price

By Peter Chubb - Jan 26, 2011

We already know that Sony unveiled two new VAIO notebooks, the Y VPCYB1S1E/S and the VPCYA1V9E/B. The only difference between the two is the processor; one is an Intel and the other an AMD. Now the Japanese consumer electronics maker has announced the SA and SB to add to its ever-growing VAIO range.

These two laptops are for its high-end range, the one with the Intel Core i7-2620M will be the more expensive of the two and will come with 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD and an AMD Radeon HD 6630M graphics card. This kind of specs will come at a price though; almost $2,500 – still not bad when you look at what you are getting for your money though.

The other model will come with a less-powerful Intel Core i5 chip, but will still be more than enough for most of your needs. We assume that the rest of the specs will be the same, but Engadget is uncertain when both laptops will be released. There is a video for you to see the prototype of this laptop in action.

Laptop Computer Planet Blog has been able to offer more details for each device, and as such has a spec list. We were shocked to see that another model was spotted and will offer 8GB of RAM – now that will be one powerful machine.

Take a look at the four and let us know which one you would rather?

    I was dead on serious about this notebook . Yes it looked like a nice fit to the next generation z. However and a strong however I played with it for all 5 min. In the Saturn store in dusseldorf. And after 5 sec of holding down the left arrow key to scroll through photos in windows photo viewer the fan came on like gan busters and the machine was noisy and got I instantly hot to fry an egg. As mentioned by other reviews above , yes I would have to agree major design flaw. In addition, with a heavy hand the keyboard sinks into the laptop . The top mag design dosnt cut close to what they tired to copy from apple, this is also a major design error. Must see it to believe it. Additional notes: the mouse keys won't last for heavy clickers. Buyers beware , looks great but will be the worse purchase ever! Don't buy!!!!!
