A Sony Australia spokesperson had just confirmed to us that Pro and Duos will feature Intel 4th gen Haswell processors; Fit and Fit E will run Intel's Ivy Bridge.
With all models running Windows 8, touch is the theme of Sony's new VAIOs, with every model featuring a bright HD IPS LCD touchscreen.
Sony has also kitted out all the new VAIOs with "one-touch" Near Field Communication (NFC), which also features on its new Smart TVs. It enables devices to communicate with other NFC enabled devices like smartphones, and exchange data.
The new mobile PCs also sport Sony's X-Reality super resolution technology, ClearAudio+ and XLoud technologies on the audio front.
The Japanese maker says the newbies are suitable from "room backpacks to the boardroom". They are priced at $999 for the VAIO Fit E to $1699 for the high end VAIO Duo 13, which looks like Microsoft Surface.
"Having a touch screen on every VAIO enables users to have the best experience of any Windows 8 device," said Jun Yoon, Marketing Manager, Network Entertainment at Sony Australia.
"Combined with technologies such as TRILUMINOS Display and X-Reality, Sony is able to continually produce best-in-class products like the VAIO Pro - the world's lightest touch ultrabook."
Priced at $1299 for the VAIO Pro 11-inch and $1399 for the 13-inch model, the Pros are the lightest touch ultrabooks, with casing made of carbon fibre normally used in aircraft and F1 cars.
The 11 incher weighs an impressive 0.87kg, and the Pro 13 1.06kg, including the battery.
