VAIO has unveiled a new 12.5 inch laptop, SX12 which comes with more of I/O options in comparison to other heftier machines. The laptop is a follow-up of VAIO S11 and comes with a bigger screen size as well as keycaps in around the similar size body.
The SX12, which weights around 888gms, features 3 USB-A ports, a full size micro SD slot, a USB-C slot for charging, one Ethernet port, one mic/headphone port as well as a VGA. The keys of SX12 stretch towards its edge while the bezels of the laptop have been trimmed down. It uses the Intel 8th gen Quad-Core Core i7 or i5 processors which come with a discretional LTE module.
According to a The Verge review, the VAIO SX12 is a lightweight, practical machine which comes with a comfortable-to-use keyboard and offers strong performance. However, the only downsides are its underwhelming battery and cramped trackpad, the outlet added.
Notably, the SX12 will be available for sale across Japan starting this week and will cost around 119,800 Yen to 216,800 Yen depending on the color options, storage as well as processor. Details regarding its US release have not been disclosed yet but it is expected that the laptop will go on sale there soon.
