Just when you thought Chromebook support from manufacturers might be fading, it looks like Sony is moving forward with a Chromebook of its own. The Sony VAIO VCC111 Series pictures and manual just showed up on the FCC this week, and in case there's any doubt as to whether this is a Chromebook the reference to "start Chrome OS" on page 2 of the manual should put an end to any debate this might be a Windows machine Ultrabook:
It’s still not clear what the internal specs are for the VAIO CC111, but with the user guide and pictures we can at least deduct some of those. The bottom picture of the Chromebook has a sticker that indicates it has an 11.6” Samsung screen and the CPU is a “T25”. This could be an Nvidia Tegra 2 T25 ARM based processor, which would be interesting as it would make for the first Chromebook to run on a non-Intel based processor.
Deduced Specs, question mark indicates assumed or unsure:
- Processor: Nvidia Tegra 250 T25 1.2GHz ARM based processor
- Screen: 11.6” diagonal, produced by Samsung
- OS: Chrome OS
- Memory: 2GB RAM
- Ports: two USB 2.0, SD card reader, headphone port, microphone port, HDMI
- Wireless: 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth
- Storage: SSD – 16GB
