VAIO Introduces the New VAIO S with VAIO TruePerformance and 8th Gen Core

As part of its continued support for the business user, today VAIO Corporation has introduced a new line of the VAIO S laptops equipped with the 8th Generation Intel Core Processor and VAIO TruePerformance, a technology designed to maintain higher performance for a longer period of time by increasing CPU power limits and more efficiently eliminating processor heat.

By applying VAIO TruePerformance, the 8th Generation Intel Core Processor demonstrates higher performance for both the CPU and graphics over the usual 8th Generation Core i7 Processor. In addition, the Core i5 Processor with VAIO TruePerformance has the effect of achieving higher performance than the usual 8th Generation Core i7 Processor.
VAIO S - An all-purpose, durable machine
The VAIO S with a 13.3" full HD display is an all-around performer for those looking for a machine that will last years, without sacrificing on any important features:
  • A Design That's Built to Last - The VAIO S is equipped with a molded magnesium alloy casing that ensures robustness and durability. The casing is further reinforced by adding ribs to the designated points, which also brings improvement to the feel of keyboard and touch pad.
  • Full Connectivity Options - Standard analog RGB Output, HDMI Output, LAN Connector, USB 3.0 (x 3) means no lugging around a number of adapters while traveling. Plus, the portable AC adapter comes equipped with a USB charging port.
  • Stress-Free Usability - When the laptop is opened, the keyboard is automatically tilted, making it more ergonomic and easier to type, reducing the stress on the palm and wrist. The touch pad comes with separate left and right buttons to avoid mistouch and it is aligned with the center of the keyboard for more natural typing. The VAIO S offers high performance without sacrificing portability or battery life (up to 8 hours 30 minutes).
  • Increases Security - For added security, the VAIO S comes standard with a built-in fingerprint login function.
  • Made in Japan - To guarantee precision and maintain exacting standards, every new VAIO S is completed at VAIO headquarters in Nagano, Japan
Pricing for the new VAIO S with TruePerformance starts at $1,199. The VAIO S will available for order starting early February 2018.

You're aware that Sony no longer makes VAIO laptops, no? They sold off their computer business a few years ago.

Your comment is a weird rollercoaster. You make it seem like it's total crap and then are like "but they're support is great". Make up your mind.

Haha! Vaio support is indeed great, but their computers (at least before Sony sold their laptop business to whoever bought it) are (not allowed to say it on the forums). That's all folks!

Sorry for double posting, but Vaio support is great on my country, on yours it may be a total disaster.

I feel like the word Vaio could have been worked into the title at least 2 more time...

I just have to chime in and say I've owned 3 Sony Vaio Laptops & 1 desktop (pre 2014) and they worked out great for me.

I ordered the VAIO S13, [VJS132X0311S] 16GB RAM, Storage 1TB PCIe SSD,CPU, Intel Core i7-8550U, Operating System Windows 10 Pro a year and a half ago for $1,799.00. My first system was a Sony VAIO Desktop in the '90s and I've had five Sony VAIOs over the years. There is a lot to love about this brand, even now that Sony is not making the VAIO. It is my understanding that Sony engineers actually migrated to the new company that produces the VAIO. So much to love about this system--sadly it takes a single flaw to completely ruin it. Others have written about the poor engineering that resulted in the power cord fitting too loosely into the jack. This is not an aberration, it is the way every single one of these units is built. The power cord just keeps falling out. Perhaps from being constantly disconnected and connected, it stopped working altogether after a year. I ordered a new cord (they are not easy to find) and it worked, but still falls out every five minutes. When you spend two grand for a system, you should not have to deal with this, and resort to literally holding the system together with rubber bands. DON'T BUY THIS SYSTEM until you know they've fixed this flaw
