Sony has been manufacturing its Vaio line of laptops for several years now with a number of series within the brand such as its Vaio S, Vaio E and Vaio Z. Today, it looks as though Sony will finally be simplifying its Vaio brand with their newly announced Vaio Fit line.
The Vaio Fit laptops are being introduced for customers who want a budget-friendly laptop, but also want it to be a “step up” in terms of its design as a cheap laptop doesn’t have to have a cheap feeling to it. The designs of the Vaio Fit will feature aluminum casings, while the Vaio Fit E line will focus on being as thin and light as possible. Both the Vaio Fit and Vaio Fit E lines will feature two models: a 14-inch model with a 1600 x 900 resolution screen and a 15-inch Full HD display (1920 x 1080).
The Vaio Fit E will start at $549 and will offer Intel Core processors, discrete NVIDIA graphics, and hybrid hard drives. The Vaio Fit will start at $649 and features a more premium looking aluminum casing, as mentioned previously, and fits somewhere between a laptop and an ultrabook in terms of its size and weight.
The new Vaio Fit and Vaio Fit E line will be available in mid-May.
