The VAIO S uses the latest 2nd Generation Intel Core i family of processors and includes Intel Wireless Display for streaming your HD content to your HDTV without wires. We look to have more detailed specifications soon.
The VAIO S is designed for portability with a magnesium casing that provides strength without adding considerable weight and G-Sensor Shock Protection which helps provide protection from the hazards of carrying a computer with you all the time.
