Sony Imagination Studio™ VAIO® Edition includes four powerful Sony applications: Movie Studio Platinum, ACID® Music Studio, Sound Forge® Audio Studio and DVD Architect™ Studio software - so you can create music and movies like never before.
Experience full-impact surround sound anywhere with Dolby® Home Theater® v4 technology on your PC. Whether you listen through headphones, the speakers in your laptop, or a connected home theater, a more captivating entertainment experience can be yours anytime. Dolby Home Theater technology offers total control over audio settings, so you can customize the sound for the maximum impact. It makes audio levels more consistent: set the volume once, and that’s where it stays.
The refined design of a slot-loading Blu-ray Disc™ player combines the power of HD Blu-ray Disc™ video playback with the convenience and utility of DVD and CD read/write functionalities. The best picture. The best sound. With stunning clarity, Blu-ray Disc™ technology is the ultimate way to enjoy your entertainment.
The built-in webcam and microphone let’s your family and friend see you clearly while chatting. The Exmor® sensor helps guarantee a clear, bright picture even in dimly-lit rooms. And with select applications, you can use the webcam and a few simple hand gestures to turn pages, skip songs, adjust the volume and more
With an optional docking station, you can quickly and easily connect to your external monitor, AC adapter, and multiple peripherals without needing to plug and unplug each one every time you arrive at your desk or workstation. Featuring four USB ports, HDMI® out, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet port and DC in, you have the connectivity that you need. The built-in hard drive provides expanded storage for your files and a simple backup solution.
With uncompromising attention to detail and a passion for design, Sony introduces the next generation VAIO® S Series laptop. Simple yet bold, with a lightweight, highly durable magnesium alloy lid, the S Series features a full-flat design concept that abandons traditional bulky batteries, unnecessary seams and protruding ports and trays with a slot-loading optical drive.
Experience your content like never before with Sony's Media Apps. We bring together the very best of Sony’s state-of-the-art technologies to provide an exceptional experience. You get seamless connectivity across all of your Sony devices to your content. Share and play with it as you choose. Connect to your favorite social networks and discover moments with your friends. Quick and easy access to the Sony Entertainment Network and other online content services, for an endless array of content.
Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony’s vision, and our keyboards are no exception. The keyboard features a precisely engineered keyboard and integrated 10-key number pad for the ultimate in speed and convenience. When typing in dim light, an LED backlight create s a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering to make it even easier to find the right keys.
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 640M LE with 1GB of VRAM delivers the perfect balance of graphics performance with long battery life. Behind the scenes with no interference to what you are doing, NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology seamlessly determines how to best optimize your notebook computing experience.
Forgot to charge your phone or mp3 player? Just plug your device via USB cord into the USB sleep charge port and start charging. Even if the PC is shut down and not plugged in you can still use it. And don’t forget that the USB 3.0 port is perfect for connecting a compatible external hard drive and allowing you to wait less and transfer data up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.
Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing flat-panel HDTVs, the S Series laptop features exceptional picture quality. The widescreen display includes an LED backlight that ensures a bright display while conserving battery power. Enjoy a wider spectrum of color for more true-to-life images with less light reflection thanks to an anti-glare coating. Plus, all 15.5" S series models feature Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and IPS (in-plane switching) technology so you can enjoy a crisper image and wider viewing angle.
The multi-gesture touchpad is the most intuitive way to interact with your laptop. Scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom in and out of images, swipe to flip through pages or photos, and you can even rotate an image, and much more. Use your touchpad in the same way as if you were touching the screen. And rather than clicking on a button, just click on the left or right mouse areas in order to activate those functions.
With Sony’s own rapid wake technology, you never have to shut down your computer again. Whether you are done working for the day or just heading out to get some coffee, simply close the lid to put your PC into sleep mode. Then, when you’re ready to start again, resume in two seconds with your data safe and secure. If you are unplugged, don’t worry about draining your battery. Your PC can stay in sleep mode for days.
Dual channel SSD with RAID technology gets you superior performance and ample storage. RAID technology coordinates between the two solid state drives to keep them operating simultaneously at optimal speed. The result is quicker boot-ups, faster application launches and overall enhanced performance. And of course, since SSD technology includes no moving parts, you get a more durable storage solution less prone to physical damage.
With an optional large capacity sheet battery, you leave behind the traditional bulky and protruding long-life batteries of the past. Attaching seamlessly to the bottom of the laptop and by working in tandem with it, you’ll enjoy up to double the battery life – helping to keep you unplugged longer. And when it's time to charge, no need for your PC- this extended sheet battery can be charged independently (without laptop).
