Sony Recommends Windows® 7 Professional
Choosing the right processor
All the processors available for the S Series laptops are based on Intel's latest 2nd
generation processor technology.
Turbo Boost Technology - Automatically speeds up your processor when your PC needs extra performance.
Hyper Threading Technology - Multi-task processing that allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time.

Dedicated graphics are critical for use with programs that have intense video graphics, which many of today's
games and other media do. If your video card gets overloaded, your processor will borrow memory from your PC
RAM which will result in slower reaction time, especially if you are running other applications. So, the more
memory you have on your video card, the less your processor will have to borrow to display graphics, which will
ultimately lead to better overall performance.
With hybrid graphics the PC contains both integrated graphics on the processor and separate dedicated graphics.
On the S Series, you can adjust your graphics setting to deliver maximum power when it's needed most and then dial
it back down for day-to-day activities to conserve battery life. You can even adjust the performance level on the
fly without rebooting. That way you lower your energy consumption and preserve your battery life.
Intel® Wireless Display 2.0 technology lets you enjoy your favorite online TV shows, movies, videos and photos
from the comfort of your couch. Best of all, you can send it wirelessly to your TV in up to full 1080p HD and 5.1 surround sound.
Requires TV Adapter (sold separately) and compatible television. Does not support Blu-ray Disc™ or
other protected content playback.
The Hard Disk Drive is where permanent data is stored, such as applications, documents, music, photos, etc.
The larger the drive, the more data that can be stored. If you are storing large amounts of pictures, music
and movies, for example, a large capacity drive is recommended.
The number of "rpm"s (or revolutions per minute) dictate how fast your hard drive can spin.
Higher rpm means faster read and write times, which mean faster overall performance.
Solid state drive technology differs from a conventional hard disk drive in that it has no moving parts. This means that solid state drives are more durable and less prone to the damage, such as scratching, that can sometimes occur over time in hard disk drives. Solid state drives also tend to provide faster boot-ups and overall speedier performance. Because of its enhanced durability, a solid state drive is an ideal option for people who plan to travel frequently with their laptop.
Memory or RAM is what your computer uses to store current data/applications
in use and so that the computer can quickly access that information. The more
Memory your computer has, the easier and quicker it will be able to operate many
programs/applications at the same time.
About the VAIO S Series display
Developed by the company you trust to deliver amazing TVs, the S Series display
features an anti-reflective glossy finish that delivers crisp, clear detail and vivid
color while minimizing the glare typically associated with glossy finishes on LCDs. So,
you get all the benefits of a glossy display without the downside typically associated with
them (i.e., glare and reflections).
Blu-ray Disc™ technology offers the ultimate hi-def experience with the best picture and sound
currently available. Blu-ray Disc™ media (or discs) also offer up to 5 times the storage capacity
of a standard DVD, perfect for storing loads of home videos, pictures and more. The chart above illustrates the
differences between the optical drives available on this PC.
In general, large capacity batteries offer approximately 1.5 times the battery life of the standard battery.
See below for the actual battery life.
Estimates only based upon Sony engineering testing. Actual performance will vary
based on notebook settings, environmental conditions, and usage. Battery capacity
decreases over time and use.
As an elegant touch for a gift or an ideal spot for an inspirational message, the engraving is tasteful and tailored just for you. Engraving also provides an extra measure of security, making it easy to distinguish your laptop from others and deter theft at the same time.
Actual number of characters that will fit depends on your message, as certain characters take up more space than others. Actual measurement is done when you enter your message in the configurator. If your message is too long, you will see an error message with instruction to edit.
Please make sure your spelling is correct as shown. Engraved laptop cannot be returned. The 30-day return period does not apply to engraved products. These products may not be returned for refund or exchange unless they contain defects in materials or workmanship or are otherwise returnable under applicable warranty provisions.
Sony's VAIO laptop limited warranty does not cover replacement of engraving. In the event your engraved VAIO laptop receives service under Sony's limited warranty or any extended service plan offered by a third party, use of necessary replacement parts may eliminate the engraving on the laptop.
Fresh Start provides a basic computing environment where specific VAIO® applications (like VAIO® Media Gallery and VAIO
Picture Motion Browser), trial software and games are removed from your unit prior to shipment. Any additional software applications added to your notebook will not be affected by this option.
