Step up to the power and portability of the Sony VAIO SA3 Series with its bold design, 13.3-inch high-def LED-backlit display, second-generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processing, switchable hybrid graphics, and an innovative battery system that provides over 7 hours of on-the-go productivity from the internal standard battery. And you can get over 14 hours with an optional large-capacity sheet battery that fits underneath the laptop.
The SA3 Series features a fully flat design concept that abandons traditional bulky batteries, unnecessary seams and protruding ports. A seamless piece of brushed aluminum milled to precise specifications creates the core, chassis offering firm structural integrity while creating bold clean contours.
It's powered by a second-generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor with updated Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which increases speed automatically for whatever you're doing. Additionally, this VAIO laptop includes award-winning Intel Wireless Display functionality.
This SA3 series laptop (model VPCSA3AFX/SI) in platinum silver features a speedy USB 3.0 port--the latest development in USB data transfer technology. Perfect for transferring and retrieving large files between your PC and an external hard drive or digital camera, USB 3.0 offers the speediest, most efficient way get what you need from external devices.
This VAIO laptop comes pre-installed with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium and it includes Microsoft Office Starter 2010 with limited-functionality versions of Word and Excel (learn more below).
Leveraging the latest innovations in lithium polymer technology, the battery of the SA3 Series is integrated into the PC and conforms to the contours of the chassis offering a thinner battery profile while still supplying up to 7 hours of battery life.
This concept even extends to the optional large capacity sheet battery and leaves behind the traditional bulky and protruding long-life batteries of the past. Attaching directly to the standard capacity battery and by working in tandem with it, you can enjoy up to 14.5 hours of total combined battery life--helping to keep you unplugged longer (sheet battery not included).
As the most popular family member, the second generation Intel Core i5 processor delivers visibly smart PC performance that values time as much as you do. Intel's Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 maximizes speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload--providing more performance when you need it the most. And Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology enables each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need for smart multitasking. It also comes equipped with Intel Quick Sync Video, which provides accelerated encoding, decoding, and transcoding features (for converting video for portable players or online sharing).
With integrated Intel Wireless Display technology, you'll be able to cut down on the cluttered mass of wires surrounding your work station and stop crowding around your laptop screen to enjoy vivid pictures, video and other content. You'll enjoy great image clarity and sound without sacrificing quality and without wires. Simply connect an optional adapter for Intel Wireless Display (such as the Netgear Push2TV PTV2000 and Belkin ScreenCast adapters) to your TV, follow a few simple steps, and you're off and running. Set it up once, and sharing your screen is as easy as pushing a button.
The VAIO SA3 Series puts you in control by offering a Hybrid Graphics system that allows you to easily set your system to deliver powerful AMD Radeon graphics performance when you need it and energy savings when you don’t. Plus, you can even adjust your performance level on the fly without needing to reboot. A simple hardware switch enables you to choose between two settings:
Practical innovation is a cornerstone of Sony’s vision, and our keyboards are no exception. Designed for ease of use, the SA3 Series laptop features precisely engineered keys to create a comfortable and intuitive typing experience. And to make it even easier to find the right keys--whether typing day or night, in the dark or light--an LED backlight creates a pleasant glow, framing the individual keys and illuminating the lettering.
The SA3 Series laptop also comes with three special hardware buttons: VAIO, ASSIST and WEB to help you get where you want to go with a simple touch of a button.
