VPCSA45GX/BI Take it with you Killer Premium Hybrid

VPCSA45GX/BI
At just 3.65 lbs., the VAIO® 13.3” S Series laptop offers a step
up to the performance and portability you demand. From its
seamless contours to advanced technology that offers up to
12 hours and 30 minutes of combined battery life (with optional
extended sheet battery)10 the S combines bold design and
mobile performance. Equipped with a 2nd gen Intel® Core™ i5
processor, a powerful AMD Radeon HD 6630M graphics card,
and 6GB of memory, the S is a serious contender for your mobile
computing needs.
Take it with you
With uncompromising attention to detail and a passion for
design, Sony introduces the next generation in VAIO® laptop
design. Simple yet bold, the S Series features a fully flat design
concept that abandons traditional bulky batteries, unnecessary
seams and protruding ports.
Combining a brushed aluminum palmrest shaped to precise
specifications and a magnesium alloy chassis, the S Series offers
firm structural integrity while creating bold clean contours.
Killer Premium Hybrid Graphics
By utilizing a powerful AMD Radeon™ HD 6630M graphics card
with 1GB VRAM6, you’ll experience premium visual quality and
intense HD performance without placing huge demands on the
CPU. Plus, the VAIO® S Series puts you in control by offering a
Hybrid Graphics system that allows you to easily set your graphics
performance to deliver power when you need it and energy
savings when you don’t. You can even set your performance
level on the fly without needing to reboot.
A simple hardware switch enables you to choose between two
settings. Select Speed for maximum power while multi-tasking
or running heavier applications or select Stamina to conserve
energy and extend battery life for light computing and mobile
scenarios.
On the cutting edge of SSD technology
Quad channel SSD with RAID technology gets you maximum
performance and ample storage. RAID technology coordinates
between the two solid state drives to keep them operating
simultaneously at optimal speed, and each drive also two
controllers. The result is quad channel RAID delivering quicker
boot-ups, faster application launches and overall enhanced
performance. And of course, since SSD technology includes no
moving parts, you get a more durable storage solution less prone
to physical damage.
Bold and Bright
Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing
flat-panel HDTVs, this laptop features unbelievably crisp picture
quality, making your photos and movies more enjoyable. The
13.3” (1600 x 900) widescreen display includes an LED backlight
that helps ensure a bright display with lower power consumption
for improved battery life.
The fastest port around.
A USB 3.0 port is perfect for connecting a compatible external
hard drive and allowing you to wait less and transfer data up to
10x faster than USB 2.0.
