Sony has started taking pre-orders for the company’s line of Windows 8 notebooks. Starting prices range from $449.99 for a Sony Vaio E 11.6 inch notebook with an AMD Brazos CPU to $1599.99 for the 13.1 inch Vaio Z high-end ultraportable notebook.

Sony Vaio Duo 11

Here’s a run-down of some of Sony’s new Windows 8 laptops with 13.3 inch or smaller displays:

While most the new models with Intel Ivy Bridge processors have relatively high starting prices, it’s nice to see that Sony is keeping the entry-level Vaio E Series 11 laptop with its $450 price tag alive.

This model features a dual-core AMD E2-1800 CPU, Radeon HD 7340M graphics, 4GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive, HDMI and VGA ports, USB 3.0, and a 1366 x 768 pixel display. It’s reasonably portable, measuring 11.4″ x 8″ x 1.25″ and weighing 3.3 pounds. And while the notebook won’t exactly be a speed demon, it’s a nice alternative for customers looking for an affordable portable Windows 8 laptop.
