Sony is showing a concept design for an upcoming ultrabook. There’s no word on the price, processor, or physical dimensions, but if the new Sony Vaio laptop follows Intel’s guidelines for ultrabooks it will likely measures less than 0.8 inches thick, weigh less than 4 pounds, and have a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge processor.
The computer has a what Sony is calling a full-flat enclosure, which means that it’s no thinner in the front than the back — but it’s pretty thin all the way around, so that’s probably OK.
The 13 inch laptop has 2 USB ports including 1 USB 3.0 port. There’s also an HDMI port, VGA port, headphone jack, Ethernet jack, and a card reader which supports SD cards and Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo.
While those specs might not sound that impressive, the Asus UX31 ultrabook I’m using needs special adapters for VGA or Ethernet connections, because the case isn’t thick enough to support full-sized ports.
