Sony comes out the gate first with its flagship back-to-school notebook lineup, which gets a premium facelift on the interior and exterior end. The light and slim VAIO Fit comes housed in a brushed aluminum chassis impervious to heavy pressure and secures the laptop’s affluent look. An updated spec sheet boosts performance with Core i7 processors, pushing notably fast boot times and solid system benchmarks. The responsive 15-inch touchscreen and backlit keyboard enhance the typing experience as well.
