Sony Tries To Pack PC Performance Into A One-Inch Profile, Announces The VAIO S Series

Sony Electronics has just announced the VAIO S Series laptop featuring the powerful performance of a larger full-sized PC packed into a thin one-inch profile design and 13.3-inch screen form factor. Incorporating all the mobility of VAIO laptops, this new line delivers ultimate portability and performance with the second generation Intel Core  i5 and Core i7 processor coupled with Hybrid Graphics as well as dual channel solid state drive options (select models). I still think the VAIO series is a bit over priced for what you get, but they are making strides to give more value for your money.

sony-vaio-s-seriesSelect S Series models sport a premium and elegant design in black or white with magnesium and aluminum materials, and all of them incorporate a built-in lithium polymer battery that when coupled with the all new and advanced large-capacity optional sheet battery, you can stay mobile and unplugged for up to 15 hours. Performance is top priority with the second generation Intel Core i7 and Core i5 processors that deliver even more performance automatically when you need it with a better visual PC experience built-in. AMD Radeon HD 6630 1GB Hybrid Graphics card (select models) gives a performance boost to your day-to-day processor functions for a faster, more optimized overall computing experience while lowering power consumption. For maximum performance and mobility, select models features dual channel solid state drive with RAID 0 technology. All models incorporate backlit keyboards, illuminating the lettering for typing in low light situations. The built-in web camera powered by an “Exmor” sensor also allows for great low-light performance.

With Intel® Wireless Display 2.0, you can sit back and experience your favorite videos, photos and music on your TV. Stop crowding around a laptop screen and view and share content from your hard drive, home network or the internet wirelessly on your HDTV utilizing the adapter (sold separately).

The VAIO S Series laptops are available for pre-sale today at starting for around $970, and the optional sheet battery for around $150.
