Sony launches teaser campaign for new Vaio laptop

Sony has begun teasing a new "revolutionary" Vaio laptop that appears destined to debut at January's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Sony has launched a teaser ad campaign for a new "revolutionary" Vaio laptop that appears destined to debut at January's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Promising to "change the way you think about laptops," the company's New Zealand subsidiary has launched a countdown teaser campaign on its Web site entitled "The wait is over."

The site is offering no details on the new Vaio laptop until January 9 -- which due to the time difference between New Zealand and Las Vegas means the unveiling will come a few hours after Sony CEO Howard Stringer delivers a keynote address at CES.

Gadget blogs were recently set buzzing after an upcoming Sony laptop appeared in a regulatory filing on the Federal Communications Commission's Web site. The machine, identified as the PCG-1P1L, is a Windows-based machine that offers several connectivity options including 3G wireless.

Most details of the machine were temporarily withheld from the FCC site at the request of Sony however a picture of the base of the machine and the product ID label indicate the computer is approximately 22 centimeters long by 11 centimeters deep.

That would make it smaller and more compact than most netbooks but whether it's a netbook or a more powerful computer is impossible to tell.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

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.
