Benefits
A revolution in Sony®
VAIO® design
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.
A seamless piece of brushed aluminum milled to precise specifications creates the core of the S Series
chassis offering firm structural integrity while creating bold clean contours.
Perfectly portable
Lightweight and easy to handle at just 4.4 lbs. with a thin 1” profile, the VAIO® S Series laptop is crafted for
those on the move. Featuring 2nd generation Intel® Core™ technology, full HD 1080p display, hybrid graphics,
Blu-ray Disc™ technology (select models), up to 8GB RAM and a durable magnesium alloy casing, the S
Series laptop has everything it takes to get you through the most demanding of days - all in a thin-and-light
15.5” form factor. Plus a host of energy-saving features deliver up to 6 hours of standard battery life, and up to
12 hours of total combined battery life with the all new large capacity sheet battery (sold separately) – helping
to keep you unplugged longer.9
2nd generation Intel®
processor technology
As our most popular family member, the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor features Intel® Turbo Boost
Technology 2.0 that increases your PC’s speed automatically. See and feel performance with a visible
difference. Get the visibly smart processor with a boost.2
Free yourself from the
cord
Leveraging the latest innovations in lithium polymer technology, the battery of the S Series is integrated into
the PC and conforms to the contours of the chassis offering a thinner battery profile while still supplying up to 6
hours of battery life.9 This concept even extends to the all-new large capacity sheet battery and leaves behind
the traditional bulky and protruding long-life batteries of the past. Attaching directly to the standard capacity
battery and by working in tandem with it, you’ll enjoy up to 12 hours of total combined battery life (with optional
sheet battery) – helping to keep you unplugged longer.9
Premium Hybrid Graphics
The VAIO® S Series puts you in control by offering a Hybrid Graphics system that allows you to easily set
your system to deliver powerful AMD Radeon™ graphics performance when you need it and energy
savings when you don’t. Plus, you can even adjust your performance level on the fly without needing to reboot.
A simple hardware switch enables you to choose between two settings: 1. Select Speed for maximum power
while multi-tasking or running heavier applications 2. Select Stamina to conserve energy and extend battery
life for light computing and mobile scenarios
LED backlit display
Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing flat-panel HDTVs, the VAIO® S Series laptop
features exceptional picture quality. The 15” (1920×1080) widescreen display includes an LED backlight that
helps ensure a bright display while conserving battery power.
Enhance the security of
the Internet
Symantec™ VIP is a powerful, additional layer of security that links your PC to the online account, VPN or
application that you select, decreasing the ability of thieves to access your accounts and information from
another PC.25 Created jointly by industry leaders Intel® and Symantec, and available through select member
websites, VIP helps ensure that only you can access your online accounts and websites. When you log into
any of the hundreds of VIP member websites, you’re asked to provide a one-time password that’s
automatically generated by Intel® Identity Protection Technology. Since the password is random, and you get
a new one each time you visit, it’s virtually impossible for cybercriminals to hijack your online identity.25 The
best part? The identity protection technology is built into your new PC’s processor, so there’s no extra
hardware to buy and no tokens or other “credentials” to lug around, forget, or lose. Protecting yourself online
has never been easier.25
Convenient backlit
keyboard
Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony’s vision and our keyboards are no exception. Designed for ease
of use, the S Series features a precisely engineered keyboard and integrated 10-key pad for the ultimate in
speed and convenience. And to make it even easier to find the right keys, an automatic LED backlight
illuminates each key.
Take it to the big screen –
wirelessly
Now it’s easy to wirelessly stream content to your HDTV with the Intel® Wireless Display enabled S Series
laptop. Sit back and experience your favorite online TV shows and movies from the comfort of your couch.
Access personal video, music and photos from your hard drive or home network and immediately send it
wirelessly to the biggest display in up to full 1080p HD and 5.1 surround sound.8 With integrated Intel®
Wireless Display technology, searching for cables and stringing them across your living room or office is a
thing of the past.8
Superspeed USB
The S Series laptop features a USB 3.0 port perfect for connecting a compatible external hard drive and
allowing you to wait less and transfer data up to10x faster than USB 2.0.
Hardware Buttons
The S Series laptop also comes with three special hardware buttons: VAIO, ASSIST and WEB to help you get
where you want to go with a simple touch of a button. • Select the WEB button for one touch access to the web
without full boot up into Windows™. • Press the VAIO button and instantly launch Media Gallery™ software
to enjoy all your photos and music in a whole new way. • ASSIST button links directly to VAIO Care™ software
that helps maintain and troubleshoot any PC issues for optimal performance.
