Computex 2018: The VAIO laptop returns lighter than ever - but there's a catch

It's not coming to Australia

The once-famous VAIO laptop brand was reactivated at this year's Computex, with Taiwanese company Nexstgo looking to relaunch the brand in Asian markets.

The new VAIO range consists of two notebooks, the S11 and S13.

The VAIO S11 features an 8th Gen Intel Core processor, 11.3-inch FHD IPS display, up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage. At 0.85kg, it's extraordinarily lightweight but surprisingly beefy.

Then, the VAIO S13 features an 8th Gen Intel Core Processor, a 13-inch FHD IPS display up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, up to 512GB of SSD storage. It comes in a little heavier by comparison at 1.07kg.

Both are available in both i5 and i7 variants.

Unfortunately, they won't be available to Australian customers. At least, not yet.

Speaking to PC World Australia, Nexstgo told us that they currently only planned to sell the product in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
