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.
A seamless piece of brushed aluminum milled to precise specifications creates the core of the S Series chassis offering firm structural integrity while creating bold clean contours.
Leveraging the latest innovations in lithium polymer technology, the battery of the S Series is integrated into the PC and conforms to the contours of the chassis offering a thinner battery profile while still supplying up to 7 hours of battery life.
This concept even extends to the all-new large capacity sheet battery and leaves behind the traditional bulky and protruding long-life batteries of the past.
Attaching directly to the standard capacity battery and by working in tandem with it, you’ll enjoy up to 14 hours of total combined battery life (with optional sheet battery) – helping to keep you unplugged longer.
Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony’s vision, and our keyboards are no exception. Designed for ease of use, the S Series 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.
