One of Sony’s first ultrabooks is headed to the US soon.. and in an odd move for the company, the Sony Vaio T13 will actually be one of the cheapest ultrabooks available from any company. Traditionally Sony has positioned its computers as premium alternatives to its competitors products.

The Verge reports that the thin and light notebook will sell for just $769.99. Laptop Magazine and CNET peg the price slightly higher, at around $799. That’s still kind of pricey for a laptop, but not bad for an ultrabook with an Ivy Bridge processor.

Sony Vaio T

The Sony Vaio T13 features a 13.3 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.7 GHz Intel Core i5-3317u processor, a 320GB hard drive, and 32GB of flash storage.

Sony’s ultrabook measures 0.71 inches thick and weighs 3.5 pounds. It has an aluminum lid, but a plastic case.

Sony will offer a model overseas with an 11.6 inch screen, as well as options for larger solid state disks instead of hard drives. But for the US market, it looks like Sony wants to offer only the cheapest 13 inch ultrabooks it can.

  1. If the 11″ is about $600, this is my next laptop… Unless AMD/Trinity get out of the woods (and its head out of its a$$) and fournishes some ‘ultrabooks’ around the same price but with some actual (useful) ports.

    1.  So far HP is offering AMD… They’re calling them Sleekbooks instead of Ultrabooks.

      1. Yeah, I know there’re not bad at all. But have too big of a screen (14″ and up).

        1. Will probably have to wait till they push out the 17W ULV Trinity’s before we see smaller options.
