Sony announces spanking new VAIO S Series laptop

Sony’s range of VAIO laptops are further expanded with yet another model – this time around through the VAIO S which will cater for folks who want more power in their everyday, portable computing. It might be a laptop, but don’t be fooled by it’s size – similar to how we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.
Offering the far more powerful performance of a larger full-sized PC despite being crammed into a thin one-inch profile design alongside a 13.3-inch screen form factor, the VAIO S laptop will incorporate all the mobility of VAIO laptops, boasting the second generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors (you can choose according to your needs, of course) coupled with Hybrid Graphics and dual channel solid state drive options for select models.

Different S Series models will come with a premium and elegant design in either black or white colors, alongside magnesium and aluminum materials for that added touch of class. All of them do sport a built-in lithium polymer battery that will work even better in tandem with the all new and advanced large-capacity optional sheet battery, letting you work away from a power outlet for up to 15 hours.
With intelligent charging enables, you are able to juice up the optional sheet battery separately and hook it to the system without having to shut it down for maximum flexibility.
The use of AMD Radeon HD 6630 1GB Hybrid Graphics card on some models are able to offer a performance boost to your day-to-day processor functions, making the overall computing experience a faster and more optimized one without sipping additional juice – in fact, it will lower overall power consumption. Other models for those who want top performance in a mobile package can look forward to dual channel solid state drive with RAID 0 technology.
You can already place a pre-order for the VAIO S Series laptops from today onwards with prices starting from around $970 and above, depending on the type of components as well as innards that you would like to see. If the optional sheet battery is your cup of tea, you will need to top up another additional $150 thereabouts.
