Sony VAIO S Series SVS13A12FXBAt just 3.8 pounds, the VAIO S Series 13 laptop offers stepped-up performance and all-day mobility in a sleek, full-flat design with carbon fiber elements. This S Series laptop in black (model SVS13A12FXB) features up to 7 hours of battery life and a 13.3-inch high-def LED-backlit display. Developed by the same people you trust to engineer amazing flat-panel HDTVs, the 13.3-inch widescreen display includes a glossy, anti-reflective finish that provides better color intensity without any glare.
Hybrid GraphicsGraphics are powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE chip with 1 GB of dedicated video RAM, delivering the perfect balance of graphics performance with long battery life. Behind the scenes, NVIDIA Optimus technology seamlessly determines how to best optimize your notebook computing experience so there’s no interference to what you’re doing on your laptop.
Rapid WakeWith Sony’s own Rapid Wake technology, you never have to shut down your computer again. Whether you are done working for the day or just heading out to get some coffee, simply close the lid to put your PC into sleep mode. Then, when you’re ready to start again, resume in 2 seconds with your data safe and secure. If you are unplugged, don’t worry about draining your battery. Your PC can stay in sleep mode for days.
Create Something Worth SharingSony Imagination Studio VAIO Edition includes four powerful Sony applications: Vegas, ACID, Sound Forge, and DVD Architect software so you can create music and movies like never before.
Night ShiftPractical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony’s vision, and our keyboards are no exception. The keyboard features precisely engineered keys to create a comfortable and intuitive typing experience. When typing in dim light, an LED backlight creates a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering to make it even easier to find the right keys.
Simple Multi-Gesture TouchpadThe multi-gesture touchpad is the most intuitive way to interact with your laptop. Scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom in and out of images, swipe to flip through pages or photos, and you can even rotate an image, and much more. And rather than clicking on a button, just click on the left or right mouse areas in order to activate those functions.
The Handiest Port AroundForgot to charge your phone or mp3 player? Just plug your device via USB cord into the USB sleep charge port and start charging. Even if the PC is shut down and not plugged in you can still use it. And don’t forget that the USB 3.0 port is perfect for connecting a compatible external hard drive and allowing you to wait less and transfer data up to 10x faster than USB 2.0.
HDD G-Sensor Shock Protection TechnologySony’s G-Sensor Shock Protection technology counteracts sudden movements by locking up the spinning hard drive to help prevent potential damage, such as scratching, which could lead to data loss.
Control Your Power SettingsThe VAIO S Series puts you in control by offering a stamina/speed switch that allows you to easily manage your performance to deliver power when you need it and energy savings when you don’t. You can even set your performance level on the fly without needing to reboot.
Not Just for Video ChattingA built-in HD web camera offers superb video conferencing quality. Powered by an Exmor sensor, this HD web camera offers amazing low-light performance and includes face-tracking technology that allows the camera to automatically adjust and keep you in focus as you move about. And with certain programs, you make hand gestures in front of your camera to skip songs, turn pages, or turn the volume up.
Security MeasuresTPM (Trusted Platform Module) provides secure information management and enhanced business protection. TPM is built into a computer to store cryptographic information, such as encryption keys. Because TPM uses its own internal firmware and logic circuits for processing instructions, it does not rely upon the operating system and is not exposed to external software vulnerabilities. As a result, information stored on TPM is more secure from external software attacks and physical theft.
Optional Docking StationWith the optional docking station, you can quickly and easily connect to your external monitor, AC adapter and multiple peripherals without needing to plug and unplug each one every time you arrive at your desk or workstation. Featuring four USB ports, HDMI out, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet port and DC in, you have the connectivity that you need. The built-in hard drive provides expanded storage for your files and a simple backup solution.
