Hardware

Dual-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core Performance
This VAIO S Series 15 notebook houses an Ivy Bridge 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-3210M processor. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.1GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated L3 cache, 6GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to experience a smooth and seamless multitasking experience
Bold and Bright
The 15.5" widescreen IPS display includes LED backlight technology that helps ensure a bright display with lower power consumption for improved battery life. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1920 x 1080 native resolution. The display also has a glossy, anti-reflective coating which provides better color intensity while reducing glare
Sensational Sound
With Dolby Home Theater v4 technology, this VAIO S Series 15 notebook offers total control over audio settings. You can customize the sound and audio levels for more consistency as well as set your preferred volume
Simple Multi-Gesture Touchpad
Scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom in and out of images, swipe to flip through pages or photos, and even rotate an image with the multi-gesture touchpad. And rather than clicking on a button, just click on the left or right mouse areas in order to activate those functions
Full Connectivity
For Internet access, you have a choice of using the built-in 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack or go wireless with 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. You can use Bluetooth 4.0 to wirelessly connect to all your peripherals, such as a wireless mouse or keyboard. The HDMI port allows you output video to an HDTV
The Handiest Port Around
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 this Sony VAIO notebook 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 allows you to wait less and transfer data up to 10x faster than USB 2.0
Rapid Wake
With Sony's own Rapid Wake technology, you never have to shut down your computer again. Simply close the lid to put this Sony VAIO notebook into sleep mode. Then, when you're ready to start again, resume in 2 seconds with your data safe and secure. If you are unplugged, don't worry about draining your battery. This Sony VAIO notebook can stay in sleep mode for days
Sleek Portability
With a lightweight, durable magnesium alloy lid, the VAIO S Series 15 notebook features a full-flat design that abandons traditional bulky batteries, unnecessary seams and protruding ports. The SuperMulti DVD burner is even slot-loading to eliminate the need for a tray.
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
Sony's Media Apps
With Sony's Media apps, 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 share your favorite moments with family and friends. You will also have quick and easy access to the Sony Entertainment Network and other online content services for an endless array of content
Sony Imagination Studio VAIO Edition
Included with this VAIO S Series 15 notebook are four powerful Sony applications:
  • Movie Studio Platinum
  • ACID Music Studio
  • Sound Forge Audio Studio
  • DVD Architect Studio
  • Windows 8

    The Redesigned Start Screen
    Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a more tablet style design featuring tiles. These tiles are customizable to your liking as well as update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen. If you prefer the traditional Start screen of Windows 7, you have the option to switch to it
    Seamless Integration of Multi-Touch Gestures
    Windows 8 supports multi-touch gestures. Now, you can use your keyboard, mouse or the touchpad using simple gestures. Whether you're browsing apps, reading a book or typing on the go with touch, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between all three interactive components. With the touchpad, Windows 8 allows you to use multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag, tap, slide, pinch-to-zoom and more
    To the Cloud
    With Windows 8, you'll be able to bring all your personalized Start screens with you by signing into your Microsoft account. When signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your own Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to your services as well, such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
    Windows Store
    In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it
