Notebook VAIO SX12 SX14

About six months after the official presentation, VAIO announces the 2020 version of the SX12 and SX14 notebooks, now updated with 10th Gen Comet-Lake Intel Core processors presented last August. The distinctive feature of these notebooks remains the ultra-compact design and the very low weight thanks to the use of carbon fiber: there is talk of about 880 grams for the 12 “VAIO SX12 model and one kilogram for the 14” VAIO SX14 variant.

Dimensions and display aside, the two notebooks have practically identical technical specifications; VAIO SX12 uses a 12.5 “FHD panel, VAIO SX14 instead mounts a 14” panel also with 4K option.

As for the hardware platform, VAIO offers two options for the CPU: the Intel Core i7-10710U hex core and the Core i5-10210U quad core. The graphics are the integrated Intel UHD while for the memory we report the use of LPDDR3 RAM (max 8GB) and SSD type NVMe PCI-E or SATA 3 storage (depending on version).

On board we find WiFi AC, Gigabit LAN, Bluetooth 4.1 and LTE optional connectivity; there is no shortage USB 3.1 gen 2, USB Type-C, HDMI and SD reader while the operating system is Windows 10 Home. VAIO did not disclose the battery capacity, according to what is reported in the data sheet, however VAIO SX12 should guarantee about 12.5 hours of autonomy while VAIO SX14 rises to 14 hours.

VAIO SX12 and VAIO SX14 are available in Japan from 197,800 yen (about 1600 euros per exchange), at the moment marketing in Europe is still excluded.
