It also has 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 256GB solid state drive, a Power Media Dock with a Blu-ray burner, 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam, microphone and stereo speakers.

It also has Intel Hyper-Threading technology for smooth and seamless multitasking. Built-in Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) technology allows you to stream HD video content to your HDTV wirelessly with a WiDi-compliant TV adapter (sold separately)
Bold and Bright
This Sony VAIO notebook features a 13.1" widescreen display backlit with LED lamps, which use less power and provide better image quality than their CCFL counterparts. The screen features a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is the standard for HDTVs. The 1920 x 1080 native resolution is powered by integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000. You can also connect to an external display, such as a HDTV, via the HDMI port
Power Media Dock
This Sony VAIO notebook computer comes with a Power Media Dock, which delivers the power you need through one unique and familiar port. Featuring a powerful AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics card with 1GB of dedicated memory, the Power Media Dock allows you to experience high-quality visuals and intense HD performance without taxing the Sony VAIO notebook's processor.

Solid State Drive Technology
This Sony VAIO notebook computer has a solid state drive (SSD), which allows you to get superior performance and ample storage.

Security Measures
This Sony VAIO notebook computer comes with a biometric fingerprint reader and Trusted Platform Module (TPM). The fingerprint reader allows you to access the BIOS, hard drive, Windows log-ins and websites by simply swiping your finger. TPM 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

The ASSIST button links you directly to VAIO Care software, which can help you troubleshoot PC issues in order to maintain optimal performance

Playback can be controlled by hand gestures using the built-in web camera, simply wave your hand and Media Gallery software will advance to the next track or photo. Media Gallery software even makes it easy to share your personal photos and videos. Publish your favorites to popular sites like Facebook, Picasa and many more directly from Media Gallery interface

USB 3.0
This Sony VAIO notebook has two USB 3.0 ports, which are 10 times faster than USB 2.0 ports, so you can transfer data faster and with less wait time.

    Comments about Sony VAIO Z1311 SVZ13116GX/X 13.1" Notebook Computer (Black):

    I use this computer for work in a digital agency, it is great for travelling and provides me with the power needed to work on the move. It is light and very portable. Screen is amazing and docking station works well. Only downside is the small lip that raises the keyboard when you open the monitor, maybe ergonomically correct but is annoying.
