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.
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
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.

You choose the network.
Sony® VAIO® Z Series laptop computers give you a choice of mobile 3G networks.
Connect with Verizon Wireless, hook up with Sprint or link to AT&T - either way, you'll
get great service almost anywhere you go.
Please note that you will have the option to select your carrier and set up your mobile
broadband account during the initial set up process after you receive your PC. You can
either set up your account through the step-by-step set up process on your first
boot up, or you can click on the "VAIO Mobile Broadband Set up" icon on the PC's desktop.
Be your own mobile hotspot
Share My Connection™ technology converts the wireless mobile broadband signal
into a Wi-Fi signal that can be transmitted through your PC to up to 5
Wi-Fi-enabled PCs or devices. This means that your VAIO® Z series laptop
can do double duty as a hotspot while still maintaining full PC functionality.
