Sony Europe announces its new Ivy Bridge Vaio S and Vaio Z Series
VAIO S Series
Available in a choice of 33.7cm (13.3”) and 39.5cm (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 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 as well as a nice 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 with the Core i7-3612QM available on the VAIO SVS1511W9E (on selected S Series 15 models) are partnered by optional SSD storage and powerful NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE GPU + Intel HD Graphics 4000 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 500GB HDD up to 1TB on the VAIO SVS1511W9E. 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
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 1.2kg and less than 17mm 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 with for example a Core i7-3612QM on the VAIO SVZ1311Z9E. 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 thanks to an Intel HD Graphics 4000 + AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics combo.
