The widescreen display includes an LED backlight that ensures a bright display while conserving battery power. Enjoy a wider spectrum of color for more true-to-life images with less light reflection thanks to an anti-glare coating.

Simple multi-gesture touchpad
The 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. Use your touchpad in the same way as if you were touching the screen. And rather than clicking on a button, just click on the left or right mouse areas in order to activate those functions.
Experience full-impact surround sound anywhere with Dolby Home Theater v4 technology on your PC. Whether you listen through headphones, the speakers in your laptop, or a connected home theater, a more captivating entertainment experience can be yours anytime. Dolby Home Theater technology offers total control over audio settings, so you can customize the sound for the maximum impact. It makes audio levels more consistent: set the volume once, and that's where it stays.
Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony's vision, and our keyboards are no exception. The keyboard features a precisely engineered keyboard and integrated 10-key number pad for the ultimate in speed and convenience. 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.
With 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 two 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.
NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M 1GB dedicated graphics let's you play all the hottest games the way they're meant to be played with amazing special effects and incredible detail.
HDD G-Sensor Shock Protection technology
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.
HD web camera
The built-in webcam and microphone let your family and friend see you clearly while chatting. The Exmor sensor helps guarantee a clear, bright picture even in dimly-lit rooms. And with select applications, you can use the webcam and a few simple hand gestures to turn pages, skip songs, adjust the volume and more.
The handiest port around
Forgot 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.
With an optional large capacity sheet battery, you leave behind the traditional bulky and protruding long-life batteries of the past. Attaching seamlessly to the bottom of the laptop and by operating in tandem with it, you'll enjoy up to double the battery life – helping to keep you unplugged longer. And when it's time to charge, no need for your PC- this extended sheet battery can be charged independently (without laptop).
With an 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.
Security MeasuresProduct Highlights
TPM (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.
