The MacBook Air has proven itself to be a successful device in its own right, being super slim while boasting a great battery life to boot. Sony, with their range of Vaio notebooks over the years which have proven to be sexy, attempts to roll out a MacBook Air rival known as the Hybrid PC. It is a fast ultralight machine with a Core i7 processor, a Solid State Drive, HDMI 1.4 connectivity and Wi-Di – all for less than 2.5 pounds. When you dock it, the Hybrid PC will be transformed into a full desktop replacement boasting a Radeon HD 6700M graphics processor, a Blu-ray burner, Ethernet and VGA connections, and a special connector that brings together USB with AC power. Battery life sans dock has been rated anywhere from eight to 16.5 hours, which would be wonderful (but too good to be true?). No idea on pricing or availability just yet though, so stay tuned.
