As you can see from the shot above, it will be available in a range of colours. The display runs a resolution of up to 1600 x 1280. There is a built-in light sensor which measures ambient light and auto adjusts the display for optimal brightness (giving a helping hand in extended battery life).

 

Various speed Atom Z series (Silverthorne) processors can be chosen, ranging from the Z530 at 1.6GHz to the Z560 at 2.133GHz. Sony is also sticking with SSDs for the new-gen series, giving capacity options of 64, 128 and 256GB.
