Designed to work
Set within the S Series' compact chassis is a full-size keyboard, which incorporates the optimum space between keys to enable the most accurate typing. When you're working in low-light conditions, advanced technology will automatically backlight the keyboard, so you can see what you're doing. Support is provided by the wrist rest, while a multi-touch trackpad lets you navigate, scroll, zoom and rotate, all with the touch of a fingertip.

Appearing on the big screen
Presentations and videos come to life on the 13.3-inch VAIO Display, with its deep blacks, vibrant colours and strong contrasts. A tough LCD coating helps to protect the screen from scratches and marks, so you can work in confidence whether you're in the office, or on the move. An in-built ambient sensor will detect the brightness of your surroundings and adjust the screen accordingly, saving battery power and making it easier on your eyes. Then, when you're in the mood to be entertained, the display's 16:9 aspect ratio enables you to enjoy most movies as the director intended, without black bars.
Easy to carry to and from the office or between rooms at home. The VAIO S series is slim and compact.
