Sony today unveiled an all new VAIO S Series laptop with a 15.5-inch Full HD 1080p display featuring a slim and light design and optional sheet battery for all day mobility.
At just under 1-inch thin and 4.4 pounds, the 15.5-inch S Series is easy to handle, while the Full HD display paired with Hybrid Graphics allows for increased productivity. The new 15.5-inch model sports an elegant design in jet black or platinum silver and is crafted with magnesium and aluminum materials for lightness. When coupled with the advanced large-capacity optional sheet battery, you can stay mobile and unplugged for up to 12 hours while also offering a thin battery profile. Intelligent charging enables you to charge the optional sheet battery separately from the PC and attach it to the system at any time without shutting down for maximum flexibility.
Performance and Mobility
Performance is top priority with the available second generation Intel Core i7 processor that delivers even more performance automatically when you need it. With Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, the processor increases speed automatically, delivering the performance needed for multitasking. For quicker boot-ups, faster application launches and overall maximum performance and ample storage, select models are equipped with solid state drives and feature Quad RAID 0 technology up to 1TB. Security features include Trusted Platform Module (TCG ver. 1.2 certified) and enhanced online security by Symantec VIP Access technology.
AMD Radeon HD 6630 Hybrid Graphics card (select models) with 1GB VRAM gives a premium visual experience and intense HD performance without placing huge demands on the CPU. A conveniently placed performance switch lets you choose between Speed mode for maximum power or Stamina mode for optimized battery life.
The S Series laptop comes with one-touch VAIO, ASSIST and WEB buttons, for launching Media Gallery software, VAIO Care support software and access to the web without full boot-up into Windows, all with a touch of a button.
Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing flat-panel HDTVs, the VAIO 15.5-inch S Series laptop features exceptional picture quality.
