Sony has a few new affordable VAIO laptops out there – two concepts that usually don’t go together. Even more surprising is that it doesn’t look like those cheaper prices will require you to take too big of a step down in the spec department.

The Fit 14 and 15 are both thin, light, and made of aluminum, although they don’t earn the ultrabook name. The specs are there – you can get your choice of 3rd generation Intel core processors up to i7, and you can opt to slap an NVIDIA graphics processor on there. The most eye-catching part is the display – this might be one of the cheapest ways to get a 1080p, Full HD display on a laptop. 1366 x 768 displays are gone, giving way to a 1920 x 1080 display on the Fit 15, and a 1600 x 900 display on the Fit 14. There are also options to upgrade to hybrid drives and SSDs, although this will probably push the price up considerably.

On top of all that, there’s NFC connectivity and a backlit keyboard. Audio is provided by Sony’s own ClearAudio+ technology. Most impressive might be the price – the Fit 14 and 15 start at $650 and $700, respectively. They’ll both be available later this month, Steel Black, Steel Pink, and Steel Silver.
