SAN DIEGO, Sept. 23, 2008- Sony today took the wraps off the world's lightest computer with Blu-ray Disc™ technology- the VAIO® TT Series notebook. Housed in a lightweight carbon-fiber chassis, this new model weighs just 2.87 pounds and is less than 1-inch thin.

 

"This engineering marvel packs the power of HD technology into an ultra-light, ultra-portable notebook," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing at Sony Electronics.

 

Select models play Blu-ray Disc movies in full HD 1080p resolution when connected to a compatible HDTV. These units can also record, store and play back personal content on high-capacity BD media.

 

It features an 11.1-inch widescreen display (measured diagonally) with Sony's XBRITE-DuraView™ LCD technology, delivering 100 percent color saturation for a wide range of vibrant colors and true-to-life picture quality. This technology also produces a brighter screen thanks to an energy-efficient white LED backlight so you can view photos in crystal-clear resolution.
