Available in white, black and pink, the Vaio S series are small size equipment, with 13.3-inch screen diagonal 16:9 to resolution 1366 x 768 pixels. The casing, made from a single piece of magnesium reduces the weight of just 1.75 kilos portable, Dell latitude d620 battery included. This weight is slightly higher than many netbook and feel the hold is extremely light for its size.


The S Series keyboard is very similar to those of Series C, Chiclet, good size and backlit in white. Sony has equipped the S series covers ornaments such as artificial colors. On the sides, the S Series is equipped with two USB 2.0 ports, USB 3.0, VGA, HDMI, Ethernet port and SD card and Memory Stick. It also has expansion slot ExpressCard 34 mm.

On the keys, the Vaio has some dedicated buttons to access the Internet or automatically switch between integrated Intel graphics, low power but low energy of the Dell latitude d630 battery, or the AMD Radeon HD 6470M with 512MB of memory. This ability to modulate the graphics performance, coupled with control of the brightness of the screen using ambient light sensor results in a great performance of the batteries, that hold 7 hours on paper (about 5 in the real world).

The autonomy of the Vaio S Series can be folded up to 14 hours if you use a Dell vostro 1500 battery that attaches to the bottom of the laptop increasing the height about two centimeters.

Vaio S Series Engadget's opinion

For just 100 euros more than the C series, the Vaio S offer an austere but elegant design, light weight and good performance configurable to our needs perfectly. On the other hand, autonomy, with or without extra battery boost, is very satisfactory.
