These eye-catching models come with a Core i5 processor, 4GB memory and a 320GB HD.

The latest Vaio S Series makes its debut and comes with a unique dual battery concept: an internal Li-Polymer battery with a rated life of seven hours, as well as a super-thin, extended battery that can be charged and added separately without removing the internal pack. The second battery can boost life by another 7 hours.

The Sony Vaio S Series comes with a 13.3in display, a Core i7 processor and 8GB memory. It also boasts built in 3G WWAN and switchable graphics cards.
