Another touch-enabled Windows 8 ultrabook has made its public appearance, this time coming from Sony. But instead of coming up with a totally different hardware, the Japanese company decided to just revamp the VAIO T13 and add touchscreen functionality.
The design remained pretty much the same as the non-touchscreen model. However, having a touchscreen functionality made the machine slightly thicker (1mm) and added a little bulk (100g) to it.
