VAIO Reveals The SX12 – A Tiny Laptop With Tonnes of Ports!
Mike Sanders / 2 years ago
If recent laptop releases have taught us anything, it’s that the market is taking a very significant trend towards releasing lighter and thinner models. This is clearly evident in the highly-excellent ASUS ROG Zephyrus range of laptops. There is, however, a pretty significant trade-off for these ‘ultra-slim’ designs. Namely that you will find that the number of ports the laptop is provided with is often limited. Getting one with an ethernet port is certainly more than a little unusual these days. It seems, however, that VAIO may be looking to find a compromise to this issue.
Following the launch of their official website, VAIO has announced the SX12, a slim-design laptop offering more than a few ports to help you get all your peripherals hooked up!
VAIO SX12 offers the Port-all to your devices!
Without a doubt, compared to many modern releases, the VAIO SX12 offers you more ports than you may usually expect to find. These include:
- 3 x USB-A ports
- Full-size SD card slot
- Headphone/mic port
- Ethernet port
Perhaps the most unusual, however, is the inclusion of an actual VGA port. A little dated? Perhaps. But obsolete? Not by a long stretch! Featuring an Intel 8th Gen quad-core Core i5 or i7 processor as well, this laptop is clearly no slouch while still weighing less than 2 pounds!
What Do We Think?
Despite the slim-design, VAIO is clearly angling this model towards those who still want a practical laptop. A clear example of this is how they have expanded the size of the keys compared to their prior S11 model. Essentially, however, this is basically a smaller version of their SX14 design.
Although no ‘Western’ release has been scheduled as of yet, it will start retailing in Japan for a price in the region of $2000 (depending on specification). You can check out the official website (albeit in Japanese) via the link here!
