The machine will run on an Intel Centrino 2 processing platform, and come pre-loaded with various versions of Microsoft’s [MSFT] Windows Vista.
Aside from its much-touted Blu-ray drive, the Vaio TT will also sport a massive 256GB solid state drive, a 16:9 aspect ratio for watching movies, Sprint EV-DO mobile broadband, a for big-screen buffs, an HDMI-out port that will send Blu-ray to your HDTV at full 1080p resolution.
Otherwise, the notebook sports the regular features: 2 USB ports, a webcam, WiFi and Bluetooth. Models will start at $2000, or $2750 for SSD-equipped models, and come in tri-colore: black, red and champagne gold.CD
