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).
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 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.
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 CD/DVD drives available on this PC.
Leveraging the latest innovations in lithium polymer technology, the S Series features a replaceable, built-in battery—conforming
to every contour of the chassis for a thinner profile while still supplying up to 7.5 hours of battery life. And even though this
battery is built-in, it is still easily replaceable. An available large-capacity sheet battery can also be used in tandem with the
built-in battery for a combined life of up to 15 hours.
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.
