Sony Vaio S Series Sleek New Design & Updates Specs

Sony Vaio laptops have been regarded as high quality machines since their arrival years ago. Recently we heard of a 3D Sony Vaio that Mike Smith of OSM reported on. If you cast your mind back to the CES 2011 then you may remember a few laptops being displayed.

As Engadget’s Vlad Savov says in his article at CES the S series, which is the lightest and thinnest in the Vaio family got an upgrade in terms of specs at CES. Although these laptops are small they are packed with decent specs, so let’s have a look.

According to the Sony press release the specs include a 13.3” Vaio Display with a resolution of 1366×768, a 500GB hard drive, 4GB of DDR3 1333MHz SDRAM, an Intel Core i7-2620M processor and a hybrid graphics card in the AMD HD 6470M + Intel HD Graphics. It also has all the normal bits and bobs with 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth, a DVD SuperMulti drive and it runs on Windows 7. Something that’s very important to remember is the specs and features may vary between different models.

Moving away from the inside, let’s have a look at the outside. In our eyes, this is quite an aesthetically pleasing laptop, especially as it comes in a choice of five different colors! You can get it in pink, black, silver, purple and white. Something else that the Sony models have going for them is an additional battery that can be attached without removing its main one, Peter Chubb explains this in a bit more detail over at PRNews in his comparison between the Sony Vaio and the Macbook Pro.
