Sony Vaio Y unboxed, in the flesh

We got another laptop to unbox last night and it’s one of Sony’s new Vaio line. The Sony Vaio Y is the Japanese company’s entry to the growing CULV market.

Like most other thin and light CULV notebooks, the Vaio Y sports an Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor running at 1.3GHz. Complete specs below:

Sony Vaio Y
13.3″ display @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 @ 1.3GHz
Intel GMA 4500M 829MB (128MB dedicated, 701MB shared)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1
Gigabit LAN
EpxressCard 3/4 slot
HDMI port
Memory Stick PRO / SD Card reader

It comes pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. The unit has a 6-cell 5,000mAh (54Wh) Li-Ion battery and weighs just about 3.9lbs.

And like Acer’s Timelime series, the Sony Vaio Y also promises a maximum of 8 hours battery life on the 6-cell pack. We’ll have to see how far it can go in our full review. More un-boxing photos in the gallery.

Update: Suggested retail price is Php54,999.
