  • Take it with you
    With uncompromising attention to detail and a passion for design, Sony introduces the next generation in VAIO® laptop design. Simple yet bold, the S Series features a fully flat design concept that abandons traditional bulky batteries, unnecessary seams and protruding ports. Combining a brushed aluminum palmrest shaped to precise specifications and a magnesium alloy chassis, the S Series offers firm structural integrity while creating bold clean contours
  • Killer Premium Hybrid Graphics
    By utilizing a powerful AMD Radeon™ HD 6630M graphics card with 1GB VRAM6, you’ll experience premium visual quality and intense HD performance without placing huge demands on the CPU. Plus, the VAIO® S Series puts you in control by offering a Hybrid Graphics system that allows you to easily set your graphics performance to deliver power when you need it and energy savings when you don’t. You can even set your performance level on the fly without needing to reboot. A simple hardware switch enables you to choose between two settings. Select Speed for maximum power while multi-tasking or running heavier applications or select Stamina to conserve energy and extend battery life for light computing and mobile scenarios
  • HDD G-Sensor™ Shock Protection technology
    G-Sensor™ Shock Protection technology counteracts sudden movements by locking up the spinning hard drive to help prevent potential damage, such as scratching, which could lead to data loss
  • Bold and Bright
    Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing flat-panel HDTVs, this laptop features unbelievably crisp picture quality, making your photos and movies more enjoyable. The 13.3” (1600 x 900) widescreen display includes an LED backlight that helps ensure a bright display with lower power consumption for improved battery life
  • Enjoy on your HDTV
    Now enjoy all of your personal and online content on your big screen-by wirelessly connecting your laptop to your TV.

  • Night Shift
    Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony’s vision, and our keyboards are no exception. Designed for ease of use, the keyboard laptop features precisely engineered keys to create a comfortable and intuitive typing experience. And to make it even easier to find the right keys – whether typing day or night, in the dark or light – an LED backlight creates a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering
  • The fastest port around

  • Security measures
    TPM (Trusted Platform Module) provides secure information management and enhanced business protection. TPM is built into a computer to store cryptographic information, such as encryption keys. Because TPM uses its own internal firmware and logic circuits for processing instructions, it does not rely upon the operating system and is not exposed to external software vulnerabilities. As a result, information stored on TPM is more secure from external software attacks and physical theft
  • Enhance the security of the Internet
    Symantec™ VIP is a powerful layer of security that links your PC to the online account, VPN, or application that you select, decreasing the ability of thieves to access your accounts and information from another PC19. Available through select member websites, VIP helps ensure that only you can access your online accounts and websites. When you log into any of the hundreds of VIP member websites, you’re asked to provide a one-time password that’s automatically generated by Intel® Identity Protection Technology. Since the password is random, and you get a new one each time you visit, it’s virtually impossible for cybercriminals to hijack your online identity
  • Built-in Mobile Broadband
    Easy-to-use Mobile Broadband provides a secure connection to browse the Internet and check email when you’re away from the office. Connect without the need for a PC card, USB dongle or other accessory11. It makes good financial sense to ditch the hotel network fees and leave behind unsecure Wi-Fi® hotspots.
