Sony brings USB 3.0 to their new Vaio F luxury notebooks

In an announcement in Japan today, Sony has just announced their new line of flagship Vaio laptops, and while the specs are pretty much what we’ve come to expect from Sony’s prestige line of notebooks, they do feature one impressive new addition: USB 3.0 support.
Shipping in two models — VPCF139FJ/BI and the VPCF138FJ/B — the new Vaios feature two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI interface, an SDXC card slot, a Memory Stick Duo slot, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, an Intel PM55 Express chip set, and a 0.3MP web cam.
The more expensive laptop will cost $,970 when it launches in Japan on October 9th, and ships with a Core i7-740QM (1.73GHz) CPU, 4GB of RAM, a GeForce GT 425M GPU with 1GB of VRAM, a Blu-Ray drive, two television tuners, a 16.4 1080p display and Windows 7 Home Premium.
On the other hand, the cheaper Vaio will cost only $2,140 and will ship with the same display, Blu-Ray drive, memory and television tuners, but only has a Core i5-460M (2.53GHz) CPU and a GeForce 310M GPU with 512MB of VRAM.
There’s no international pricing or distribution yet for the Vaio F series, but Sony inevitably rolls new Vaio models shortly after their Japanese debuts, so expect these luxury laptops to drop in time for Christmas.
