Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Slim design Although a basic laptop, the VAIO NS is full of style and features a slim profile for good looks and portability. With smooth rounded corners and edges, the VAIO NS sports a relaxed and natural form that looks good by your side. Gentle curves also keep exterior dimensions to a minimum and ensures the laptop is really easy to slip into a bag or carrying case. Natural finish A defining characteristic of the VAIO NS is a warm and natural surface texture that’s so different from the cold smoothness of most laptops. Designed to complement natural elements in the home, this texture is also very comfortable to hold as your fingers are in touch with individual points rather than a flat surface. Choose from elegant “silver granite” or “pure white” colours. Excellent picture quality With a good-size 15.4” widescreen display, the VAIO NS allows you to fully appreciate your multimedia entertainment without compromising portability. Sony X-black LCD technology ensures images are bright and sharp for truly realistic and natural-looking pictures. Intense contrast and colours bring multimedia files vividly to life on screen. An anti-reflective coating minimizes glare to allow enjoyment of movies, games and photo slideshows outside in the garden as well as from a wide variety of viewing angles. HD entertainment with Blu-ray The VAIO NS11Z features an integrated Blu-ray Disc™ Combo Drive with read-only capability for high bandwidth play-back of HD movies. The Blu-ray Disc™ Combo Drive also plays and records all CD and DVD formats. All purpose multimedia Work efficiently on the move and enjoy action packed multimedia entertainment. The VAIO NS includes a choice of Intel® Core™ 2 Duo, Intel® Pentium Dual-Core or Intel® Celeron® processors. All suitable for multi-tasking, playing movies or web-streaming. Ultra efficient Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor technology* on some models optimises battery life and ensures more reliable wireless connectivity. With up to 4GB of DDR2 DRAM memory*, enjoying multimedia and working on data intensive programs is easier than ever. Impressive graphics The VAIO NS11Z, NS11S, NS12M and NS12S all include fast and efficient ATI® Mobility Radeon™ HD 3430 graphics* with up to 128MB of dedicated VRAM for smooth 3D performance. Built-in MOTION EYE® camera Hiding discreetly in the LCD panel is a 1.3 Mega Pixels high performance camera that allows you to conveniently video chat with friends and family. Generous multimedia storage Store all your multimedia with ease. Up to 320GB of hard disc capacity* provides more than enough storage to handle a vast range of photos, music downloads, home videos and games. Easy Connectivity Designers positioned two USB sockets on each side of the notebook for effortless connectivity and made sure frequently used ports such as the headphone jack are as easy as possible to access. The VAIO NS also features a wide variety of connections including i.LINK™ for digital camcorders, a VGA port and ExpressCard 34mm slot. Simple multimedia control With AV mode button, quickly access all your latest pictures, movies and music. It makes really easy to find and enjoy multimedia entertainment. Wireless freedom Communicate easily with friends, family and colleagues using the next generation of wireless technology. Most VAIO NS models include Draft-n for up to five times faster wireless connectivity, more reliability and a wider reception range than 802.11a/b/g when connected to hotspots. Fully equipped with VAIO entertainment software Enjoy and create your own multimedia content with VAIO entertainment software : – VAIO® Movie Story : Create amazing home videos with three easy steps. – Click to Disc : Burn and edit your own discs. – VAIO® Media Plus: Connect to your home network and enjoy digital content stored inside your VAIO. – VAIO® Music Box: Play your favourite music according to your mood using the 12 tone analyser engine.
