Features and specifications are subject to change without notice.
*1 CPU speed will be reduced under certain operating conditions.
The maximum frequency can be achieved with Intel(R) Turbo Boost Technology 2.0.
*2 CPU speed will be reduced under certain operating conditions.
*3 The memory capacity actually available may be smaller than the one displayed depending on the software in use and operating environment.
*4 One GB means one billion bytes, and one TB or terabyte means one trillion bytes, when referring to storage capacity. Accessible capacity may vary depending on system configuration and preloaded content. A portion of space is reserved as a recovery area.
*5 The NAND Flash Memory is not available for data storage because it is used as cache memory for the HDD and used by the Operating System during Sleep Mode to reduce power consumption.
*6 You can connect external sound output devices (such as speakers, headphones, or a headset) to your VAIO computer. Use a Sony smartphone compatible headset (not supplied) to make an Internet call and voice chat. The remote of your headset does not work with your VAIO computer. Your headset may not work correctly with your VAIO computer. An external microphone with a 3‑pole mini plug does not work with the headset compatible headphone jack.
*7 Some types of SD memory cards, for example ones with the UHS (Ultra High Speed data transfer feature), may become extremely hot due to continuous access to the memory cards. In such a case, wait for a while before removing the memory card until it cools down.
SD memory cards (up to 2 GB), SDHC memory cards (up to 32 GB) and SDXC memory cards (up to 128 GB) available as of May 2013 have been tested and found compatible with your VAIO computer. However, it is not guaranteed that all SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards or SDXC memory cards will be compatible with the computer.
*8 The communication speed varies depending on the distance between communication devices, existence of obstacles between such devices, the device configuration, the radio conditions, and the software in use. In addition, communications may be cut off depending on the radio conditions.
The maximum communication distance can vary depending on the obstacles or the distance between the communication devices, the radio waves, the operating system or the software being used.
*9 The communication speed varies depending on the distance between communication devices, existence of obstacles between such devices, the device configuration, the radio conditions, and the software in use. In addition, communications may be cut off depending on the radio conditions.
*10 The continuous battery life may vary upon usage pattern, product settings, and environmental conditions.
Estimated battery life (under JEITA Battery Run Time Measurement Method ver.1.0,measurement method (a)).
*11 1 month trial for new Microsoft Office 365 customers.
