Not many notebook PCs combine such a wealth of multimedia features and solid system performance as the latest generation Sony VAIO SA Series. This 13.3-inch powerhouse has just about everything you need to transform your home-theater experience—HDMI for watching movies on your HDTV, Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) for streaming videos, photos, and more to the big screen, and Dolby Home Theater audio for room-filling, cinema-quality sound. And when you want to watch on the laptop screen, the SA Series’ widescreen display brings out the sharpest details thanks to its 1600 x 900 resolution.
The SA Series is powered by a 2.50 GHz Intel Core i5 processor with a boost up to 3.10 GHz, giving you loads of speed for running all kinds of memory-hungry programs and apps. Video performance is first-rate too, thanks to Intel HD Graphics 3000 and AMD Radeon HD 6630M hybrid graphics with 1 GB of dedicated memory. They not only give you excellent visual quality and HD performance without being a big drag on the CPU, but also let you easily set your graphics performance to deliver the juice when you need it and less power consumption when you don’t.
The SA Series weighs just 3.65 pounds and has a narrow profile of less than 1 inch, making it a breeze to carry in your bag all day or just move from room to room. Battery life of over six hours enhances the portability, keeping you unplugged for most of the day. It delivers in the looks department too, with a fully flat design that eliminates the traditional bulky battery, protruding ports, and unnecessary seams. A brushed aluminum palm rest and magnesium alloy chassis bring comfort and durability to lend additional style to this solidly built and well-rounded PC.
