What are they? Well nothing short of Intel’s Light Peak technology now officially named ‘Thunderbolt,’ Core i Series processors, and AMD processors. Yes you heard that right, AMD, not NVIDIA, are now offered to power up the hefty 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pros.

It's a perfect mix of style and functionality, though Sony could have been more creative in the naming department.

After the prototype that we’ve seen during the CES 2011, Sony has finally unveiled the revamped version of the VAIO S laptop series that gives more power with its Core i5-2410M CPU plus the Radeon HD 6470M graphics. Sony described the series as a mobile PC that “packs greater stamina with less to carry.”

Although the specs are completely different from its predecessor, we’re just dumbfounded why Sony didn’t just rename the entire series instead of making one overlap the other. But in any case, the 13-inch, 3.9-pound, Windows 7 Professional OS-driven laptops are here struting all the right moves to the same target market of the previous VAIO S Series captured.

Check out the specs after the break!

Hit the break to check out an overview of each series.
