Sony Also Introduces New VAIO S and Z Series Laptops

Offering a seductive blend of power and portability, new VAIO S Series can handle the demands of the toughest working day.

Available in a choice of 33.7 cm (13.3") and 39.5 cm (15.5") screen sizes, the slim, full-flat design of VAIO S Series 13 and 15 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 even S Series 15 models tipping the scales at below 2 kg.

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 S Series 13 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 LTE/3G WWAN mobile broadband.

Available as an option, a new docking station for S Series includes an integrated a 500 GB hard disk drive. It's 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 stamina up to 14 hours for those long continental flights.

New VAIO Z Series
Taking you to new extremes, VAIO Z Series gives multi-tasking mobile professionals the very last word in performance, looks, mobility and expandability.

Crafted in tough, superlight carbon fibre and aluminium, the tough 'hexashell' design of VAIO Z Series is designed to impress instantly in the boardroom. Weighing under 1.2 kg and less than 17 mm slim, it's your ultimate mobile partner, with effortless power to rip through any business challenge.

Inside, you'll enjoy performance to match your desktop PC. VAIO Z Series further strengthens its claim as the fastest ever notebook from Sony, with 3rd generation Intel quad-core processors on selected models. They're teamed with latest third-generation SSD Flash RAID drives to store files and access you data even faster. Depending on configuration, LTE/3G WWAN connectivity provides super-fast mobile broadband while you're on the move.

The Power Media Dock on selected models further expands the capabilities of VAIO Z, giving you unparalleled convenience and flexibility. Watch movies on the optical drive, and enjoy even more graphics power plus a simultaneous view of spreadsheets, trading figures and CAD renderings on up to four screens.

The 33.2 cm (13.1") Full HD VAIO Display Premium on selected models assures rich colours and a wide viewing angle, while anti-reflective technology cuts distracting reflections when you're working under direct lighting.

VAIO S Series and VAIO Z Series: smart, powerful performance
You're always ready for action with new VAIO S Series and Z Series. Just open the lid: Rapid Wake + Eco gets you up and running in moments. When you need to take a break, VAIO goes into an energy-efficient deep sleep, storing your data safely without running out of power - up to 90 days on Z Series. Both models also offer class-beating stamina, with an optional 'sheet' battery that lets you work uninterrupted for up to 14 hours.

Typing reports and documents on the backlit keyboard is made even more comfortable with an ambient light sensor that automatically dims screen brightness for those late-night report write-ups.

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

New VAIO 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.

I want to personally 'Thank You' for staying on top of these Notebook computer news releases. I'm in the market for a new laptop and I'm trying to keep up with what's going on with the new Ivy Bridge and soon to be...Trinity laptops and you're making my job quite easy.

Refresh for silicon, but not new designs. Sadly, Sony hasnt improved the Z despite so many criticisms. Missed opportunity.
