Easy to use multi-gesture,
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.
Clear Phase™ & xLOUD™ technology enhance sound quality
Integrated stereo speakers utilize the Clear Phase and xLOUD technologies, which delivers a richer, bolder and louder presence. xLoud technology enhances speaker volume without sacrificing quality.
HD web camera
You are now free to move about the room. While video chatting, that is. A built-in HD web camera with face tracking technology adjusts instantly to maintain focus as you move, while 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.
VAIO PCs seamlessly integrate ports so you don't have to carry a dongle. HDMI®, VGA and Gigabit Ethernet ports mean you can connect to your HDTV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, external monitor and more (cables sold separately). With the USB 3.0 port, transfer heavy files at speeds up to ten times faster than USB 2.0. Don’t forget the memory card slot for quick transfer of photos and videos.
