Sony launches teaser campaign for new Vaio laptop

Sony has begun teasing a new "revolutionary" Vaio laptop that appears destined to debut at January's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Sony has launched a teaser ad campaign for a new "revolutionary" Vaio laptop that appears destined to debut at January's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Promising to "change the way you think about laptops," the company's New Zealand subsidiary has launched a countdown teaser campaign on its Web site entitled "The wait is over."

The site is offering no details on the new Vaio laptop until January 9 -- which due to the time difference between New Zealand and Las Vegas means the unveiling will come a few hours after Sony CEO Howard Stringer delivers a keynote address at CES.

Gadget blogs were recently set buzzing after an upcoming Sony laptop appeared in a regulatory filing on the Federal Communications Commission's Web site. The machine, identified as the PCG-1P1L, is a Windows-based machine that offers several connectivity options including 3G wireless.

Most details of the machine were temporarily withheld from the FCC site at the request of Sony however a picture of the base of the machine and the product ID label indicate the computer is approximately 22 centimeters long by 11 centimeters deep.

That would make it smaller and more compact than most netbooks but whether it's a netbook or a more powerful computer is impossible to tell.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
