Sony has announced that it is coming out with two new ultrabooks, the Vaio T11 and T13.

The numerals on the model names stand for the screen size, which is 11-inches and 13-inches respectively.

Sony says that both ultrabooks will use LED backlit screens and are designed to be thin and light, partly due to its aluminium/magnesium chassis. The ultrabooks will also feature a ‘Rapid Wake’ technology that will allow the machine to be ready to use in seconds. The technology is activated simply by opening and shutting the lid.

The machines will use Intel’s Core i3-2367M mated with 4GB of RAM. Storage is in the form of a 320 GB hard drive, while an SSD is optional. The ultrabooks feature WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, HDMI output, an integrated web cam, and a gesture supported touchpad.

It is claimed that both ultrabooks will deliver upto nine hours of battery life while equipped with SSDs. There is also another option, where the customer can opt for a hybrid system that uses Intel Smart Response Technology with SSD cache memory on the motherboard, combined with a hard disk for storage.

Prices are unreleased at the time of writing.
