It appears that a certain series of portable personal computers from Sony has now gained a member powered by a certain, current-generation processor from Intel, although the price might not be for everyone.
When it comes to laptops, they can be configured for a variety of uses, from the size and shape down to the smallest of hardware components.
The Sony VAIO series has always focused on portability and entertainment, and it seems that the newest member emphasizes the latter more than the former.
The mobile computer in question is the VAIO F and can have, as heart, the Core i7-2630QM, i7-2720QM or i7-2820QM quad-core processor.
To complement these high processing capabilities, an NVIDIA 500 series discrete graphics card is present, either the GeForce GT 520M (512 MB of VRAM) or 540M (1 GB).
With either combination of the above ready to take on more or less anything, Sony decided to throw in up to 8 GB of RAM (random access memory).
In terms of storage space, a hard disk drive can bring up to 640 GB to the equation, unless users choose a SSD instead, in which case 256/512 GB is the maximum.
All of the above are packed inside a frame (that measures 16.4 inches in screen diagonal) along with the full connectivity and I/O capabilities one would expect (Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, DVD/Blu-ray, HDMI, USB 3.0, an HD webcam and an SD card slot, among other things).
As for the display itself, it has a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, Full HD as it were, and customers can even choose to get one with support for 3D.
Finally, a battery can keep the whole thing running for up to 5 hours (7.5 hours is the stronger one is chosen) and the starting price is of $1,100.
