This laptop also comes preinstalled with Microsoft Windows Vista Business which has a new user interface named Windows Aero that makes it easy to navigate through the operating system and from application to application. For instance Windows Aero helps you juggle multiple tasks at once by providing a three-dimensional real-time animated view of all your open applications and documents. Vista also integrates new search tools throughout the operating system includes new parental control features and offers new tools that can warn you of impending hardware failures.
The Basics
The Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 processor has a 2.16 GHz processor speed super-fast 667 MHz front-side bus (FSB) and an enormous 4 MB L2 cache. (An L2 or secondary cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)
The Intel Core 2 Duo processor has two computational execution cores in a single processor providing greater system response when running multi-threaded applications simultaneously with no significant increase in power consumption. It's optimized for multitasking and is ready to support the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. It can simultaneously run multiple demanding applications--such as graphics-intensive games or serious number-crunching business productivity applications--while downloading music or running virus-scanning security programs in the background. Some of the advanced Intel innovations of the Core 2 Duo processor include:
Smart Memory Access: Improves system performance by hiding memory latency thus optimizing the use of available computer data bandwidth to provide data to the processor when and where it is needed.
Advanced Digital Media Boost: Effectively doubles the execution speed for instructions used widely in multimedia and graphics applications.
Dynamic Power Coordination: Coordinates Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology and idle power-management state (C-states) transitions independently per core to help save power.
Deeper Sleep with Dynamic Cache Sizing: Saves power by flushing cache data to system memory during periods of inactivity to lower CPU voltage.

Hard Drive:
The 200 GB hard drive (4200 RPM) is one of the largest drives available on a notebook PC (as of January 2007)--perfect for storing large multimedia libraries for use on the road. This Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive also quickens the pace with a higher speed transfer of data--akin to FireWire and USB 2.0.
The G-Sensor Shock Protection feature makes your data even less vulnerable to loss or damage. When the built-in 3-D acceleration sensor detects a risky movement like being dropped the HDD-head will lock up to secure its position and protect the disc from scratching. An intelligent algorithm unique to VAIO PCs judges whether or not a movement is risky activating disk drive protection only when your hardware is at risk.
The 2 GB of built-in memory (PC4200 533 MHz DDR2 SDRAM 2 x 1 GB) maximizes the capacity for this machine enabling you to effortlessly handle a wide variety of multimedia tasks right out of the box.

DVD/CD Drive:
The double-layer DVD drive is compatible with a wide range of formats including both DVD+RW and DVD-RW discs CD-RW discs and dual-layer (DL) DVD+/-R discs which can hold up to 8.5 GB of data--great for backing up your MP3 collection or your most important documents. It features the following speeds: 4x for DVD+R DL 4x for DVD-R DL 8x for both single layer DVD+R/-R 8x for single layer DVD+RW 6x for single layer DVD-RW and 24x/16x for CD-R/RW. It reads DVD-ROM discs at 8x and CD-ROMs at 24x.

Keyboard & Mouse:
This notebook has a standard 86-key keyboard (3mm stroke and 19.05mm pitch) and electro-static two-button touchpad.

Screen Video & AudioThis notebook has a 13.3-inch LCD screen with anti-reflective coating has a widescreen 1280 x 800-pixel resolution. This XBRITE LCD provides higher brightness levels than standard displays resulting in deeper blacks brighter whites true-to-life color and razor-sharp detail. This notebook uses Sony's exclusive Hybrid Graphics System which lets you set your graphics performance with a simple flick of a switch enabling you to toggle between an internal graphics chip for optimal power consumption with excellent performance or an external graphics chip for even more robust performance. You can choose either the integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (with up to 224 MB of dynamically shared video RAM) and the installed NVidia GeForce Go 7400 graphics card (with up to 33 MB of shared video RAM).
Nvidia's TurboCache feature increases the performance of this thin and light notebook PC without increasing its size or draining its battery. It's coupled with the PowerMizer 6.0 advanced power management technology which significantly extends your notebook PC's battery life while minimizing the amount of heat it produces.
Networking Connectivity & ExpansionThe Intel PRO wireless LAN 3945ABG provides a tri-mode network connection (supporting 802.11a/b/g) with throughput up to 54 Mbps at 5 GHz (802.11a) and 2.4 GHz (802.11g). The Bluetooth wireless connectivity enables you to synchronize and transfer files between the PC and peripherals such as cell phones and PDAs as well as use Bluetooth-enabled headsets for online audio chats. And with the wireless WAN you can access the Cingular Wireless national EDGE network to extend your wireless coverage beyond LAN access networks and hotspots giving you the freedom to go farther do more and stay connected.
A WWAN uses long-range wireless connections -- the same networks as cellular phones -- to provide access across a large geographic area. In comparison a WLAN (wireless LAN) covers only one or more buildings located close together. On a WWAN you connect to your carrier's data network (Cingular for this laptop) instead of plugging into a phone jack and dialing into your ISP. Each mobile device communicates with the public carrier's base station providing coverage across entire states regions and countries via cell phone towers.
