Sony VAIO VCC111 Chromebook Series Spotted

Photos and a user manual of the Sony VAIO VCC111 Series have just turned up at the official website of the Federal Communications Commission this week.

This device confirms that there is still support for the Chromebook, or laptops running on Google’s Chrome Operating System. In fact, the user manual explicitly states that users must “Turn on their computer to start Chrome OS.” Furthermore, the keyboard for the device does not have the Windows key, which is present in Windows-powered devices, between Ctrl and Alt.

As per the photos, the left side of the device sports the microphone jack, audio jack, HDMI port, and power jack. Meanwhile, the right side has the SD card reader, and two USB 2.0 ports. The back view shows no internal/external ports; only a chrome finish.

The front view shows a green light which indicates whether the device is turned on or off. The bottom shows the removable battery as well as Chrome recovery option which involves something like a reset outlet on a Wi-Fi. This device measures approximately 21 cm or 8.27 inches in depth.

Sony hasn’t revealed its internal specifications, although this notebook is expected to have the NVIDIA Tegra 1.2GHz ARM processor, an 11.6-inch screen, 2 GB of RAM, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth, and a 16 GB SSD too.

Its price will be around $299 to $400.
