Computex 2018: The VAIO laptop returns lighter than ever - but there's a catch

It's not coming to Australia

The once-famous VAIO laptop brand was reactivated at this year's Computex, with Taiwanese company Nexstgo looking to relaunch the brand in Asian markets.

The new VAIO range consists of two notebooks, the S11 and S13.

The VAIO S11 features an 8th Gen Intel Core processor, 11.3-inch FHD IPS display, up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage. At 0.85kg, it's extraordinarily lightweight but surprisingly beefy.

Then, the VAIO S13 features an 8th Gen Intel Core Processor, a 13-inch FHD IPS display up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, up to 512GB of SSD storage. It comes in a little heavier by comparison at 1.07kg.

Both are available in both i5 and i7 variants.

Unfortunately, they won't be available to Australian customers. At least, not yet.

Speaking to PC World Australia, Nexstgo told us that they currently only planned to sell the product in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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.)

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!
