Sony has today announced its new VAIO “Fit” range of entry-level laptops. Interestingly, Sony are packing some impressive hardware across the range. Every Sony VAIO Fit laptop features NVIDIA GPUs, optical drives, and even NFC connectivity for easy one-touch pairing.
The new VAIO Fit series consists of two primary models: the Fit and Fit E, both of which have several variants of their own. The Fit laptop will feature an aluminium chassis, and at $649 (roughly RM1950) cost $100 more than the Fit E laptop. Despite their modest pricing, the new VAIO Fit laptops feature optional touchscreens, as well as a minimum resolution of 1600 x 900 up to 1920 x 1080 – a long sought-after feature that is hard to beat at the VAIO Fit’s price points. In addition, VAIO Fit owners can also look for significantly improved performance both in the laptop’s speakers as well as webcams, and will come pre-installed with a suite of photo, video and audio editing software.
The new Sony VAIO Fit E and VAIO Fit will both be available in 14- and 15-inch screen sizes, and in three colours: black, silver and pink. The Fit 14 and 15 will retail from $649 (roughly RM1950) and $699 (RM2100) respectively, while the Fit E 14 and 15 will be priced from $549 (RM1650) and $579 (RM1740) respectively. All VAIO Fit laptops will be available in international markes from mid-May; however, there’s no word yet on when they will be making their way to Malaysia.
