Sleek, light and compact in sparkling silver, VAIO SB3N9E is designed to go wherever life takes you. Weighing just 1.72 kilos with a full flat profile barely 24mm in height, it’s the perfect notebook for carrying around on the commute or between meetings. Prestigious magnesium alloy has been used to create a notebook that’s not only light and mobile but also strong and tough so you can travel around with absolute confidence. An aluminium palmrest adds strength to one of the most important areas of the notebook and makes for easier, more comfortable computing on the move.
Here’s a VAIO designed to handle all the challenges of everyday life. On board is the latest 2nd generation Intel Core i3 processor combined with 4GB of DDR3 memory for responsive multimedia computing and fast multitasking. Work on multiple files and programs simultaneously, create multimedia presentations, watch favourite DVD movies and view your latest photo slideshows, all at speed and without delay. The perfect balance between power and portability.
Sometimes you need to make the most of a few spare minutes. Perhaps you want to check a document while waiting for a meeting to start or write up some notes on a short train journey. With Fast Boot, you can power up the Windows 7 operating system on your notebook quicker than ever – as quick as twenty seconds in fact.
Heading out for the day? Keep on working with the long-lasting VAIO SB3N9E. Its unique Smart Battery concept combines a standard battery for up to 7 hours use with an optional slim extended battery that can be charged separately from the PC to give total battery life of up to 14 hours. Use the external battery first and then when it’s running low, simply switch to the internal battery. If there’s a power socket to hand, you can remove the extended battery from the notebook - you won’t even have to turn off the VAIO - and recharge it, giving you great flexibility.
The multi-purpose SB3N9E includes an advanced AMD Radeon HD6470M graphics card with 512MB VRAM and Intel HD graphics 3000. Dynamic Hybrid Graphics lets you choose whether you want high speed performance from the AMD card – ideal when watching movies, playing games or working on HD projects - or long battery life using the internal graphics. This clever notebook automatically recognises whether you’re using battery or mains power and when running demanding programs and applications, then intelligently selects the right graphics mode for either maximum stamina or performance.
Your multimedia comes vividly to life on a 13.3" widescreen VAIO display plus screen. Enjoy pictures that are razor-sharp and detailed with high contrast and 1366x768 pixel resolution. An ambient light sensor automatically adjusts screen brightness depending on the environment so you won’t have to adjust screen settings manually while working in dark meeting rooms or on overnight flights.
Your files will be permanently protected while you’re out and about. This ultra secure notebook includes a TCG security chip to encrypt your hard disc so others can’t view or gain access to your files. For added security, there’s fingerprint recognition – just swipe your finger over the sensor to gain access to your data.
Type comfortably all through the day and night on an isolation keyboard with advanced backlight technology. An ambient light sensor detects the brightness of surroundings and turns the backlight on automatically in areas of darkness such as dimmed meeting rooms or at night.
Press the WEB button and you’ll be online in seconds. This feature activates the Internet without a full boot-up of the PC, saving valuable time and battery power - ideal for surfing the Internet or checking e-mails while sitting in cafes or airport lounges. Press the ASSIST button to access VAIO Care, powerful software that helps you maintain performance and troubleshoot issues. It can even recover data when your VAIO won’t boot up.
With a docking station in the office or on your desk at home, it’s easy to move around with your VAIO without having to continuously remove cords and cables. Includes a range of interfaces including VGA output, DVI-D output, 4 USB ports and Gigabit Ethernet LAN connectivity. You can even attach your SB3N9E to the dock with the extended battery connected.
