Sony Made a Touch thru the Vaio T13 Ultrabook
With the up and coming Windows 8 Operating System that is designed to have touch-based applications, a lot of laptop manufacturers are jumping into the tablet and hybrid bandwagon. Instead of making another hybrid to compete with other hybrids that will be launched this fall, Sony instead has installed a touchscreen on one of its ultrabooks. The end product, being the Sony Vaio T13 ultrabook.
The display on the touchscreen doesn’t rotate, the panel doesn’t fold down so it will work solely like a touch pad. It is basically a computer that has a touchscreen on it. Although Windows 8 isn’t designed to be used solely for tablets or touchscreen gadgets, the operating system uses Windows 8 gestures that can be used with just the touchpad.
Sony Vaio T13 has a 13.3-inch display, a hard drive and weighs about 3.5 pounds. It has all the features that an ultrabook should have. But if you think that Sony is the only one with this idea, Samsung also has slapped a touchscreen to one of its notebook PCs. Word has it that this gadget from Sony will cost roughly around $700.
