There’s no need to compromise on power or mobility thanks to the speedy new VAIO S Series notebook PC from Sony. Offering an appealing blend of power and portability, the new VAIO S Series can handle the demands of the toughest working day.

Available in a choice of 13.3” and 15.5” screen sizes, the slim, fully-flat design of the VAIO S Series 13 and 15 means they will slip easily into a travel bag for quick access whenever you need it. The series is elegantly styled in tough, weight-saving materials like magnesium, aluminium and carbon fibre (depends on model), with the S Series 15 models tipping the scales at below 2kg.

All S Series feature a new slot-in optical drive (Blu-ray Disc™ or DVD) that maintains the notebook’s slim, low-profile looks while maximising chassis rigidity.

You’ll enjoy a clear, detailed view of presentations, graphics and games on the high-contrast VAIO Display Plus that features enhanced scratch resistance and an anti-reflective coating to minimise glare, even when you’re outdoors.

For even richer colours, VAIO Display Premium is also available on selected S Series 15 models models. Larger screen-size S Series 15 models feature a Full HD VAIO Display Plus, offering super-wide viewing angles for a practical, high-impact image when sharing projects with clients and colleagues.

Whether you’re creating presentations or browsing your media collection, typing is a pleasure on the comfortable backlit keyboard that’s complemented by a large ‘button-free’ touchpad with gesture control.

Smart, ergonomic operation is matched with plenty of power to handle whatever the day throws at you. 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processors (on selected S Series 15 models) are partnered by optional SSD storage and powerful NVIDIA® GeForce® dynamic hybrid graphics to make light of your daily work and entertainment needs. Selected S Series help you stay even more productive on the move with high-speed mobile broadband.

The new docking station for S Series is available as an optional accessory and includes an integrated 500GB hard disk drive. The docking station provides a great way to back up all your files automatically when you’re in the office or to add more storage. There’s also an optional sheet battery that boosts battery life up to 14 hours for those long international flights.

You’ll enjoy crisper, clearer web chats and movies thanks to xLOUDTM and Clear PhaseTM audio technologies. Alternatively, switch to Dolby® Home Theatre® V4 for rich, cinema-style audio via speakers or headphones.

The new VAIO S Series also makes a handy ‘any time’ charger for your smartphone. Just plug in your phone via USB for a top-up - even when the computer’s switched off or in sleep mode. Both models will be available for purchase in the UK from early June.
