- Features -

Inspired by a passion for perfection

Celebrate the spirit of sheer quality, innovation and dedication to detail that Sony breathes into every
VAIO PC. Meticulously crafted from the finest materials, VAIO | red edition celebrates power as well as
purity with range-topping features and specifications. Enjoy one full year of top-of-the-line PC services
with PC Essentials16, plus one year of accidental damage from handling (ADH) protection15 for the
ultimate peace of mind. Both come free of charge with all VAIO | red edition laptops.

Pure color, painstaking design

When a laptop is this spectacular, it needs a color as distinctive as its performance. Its distinctive hue is the fruit borne of countless trial and error, and it shines as bright as the talent and passion of its creators, its designers, and its users. Multiple paint layers are individually applied and hand-polished, building layer upon layer of rich, lustrous color. Finally, the durable UV coating protects VAIO | red edition with a vibrant sheen of exquisite depth and richness.

  • Never shut down

    More brilliant color than ever before.

    Photos, movies and webpages all look stunning on the Full HD 1920 x 1080 touchscreen LCD. Unique to Sony, all-new TRILUMINOS Display for Mobile technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of color (VAIO Duo and VAIO Pro models only). Equipped with IPS (in-plane switching) technology, crisp images can be enjoyed from virtually any viewing angle — perfect for sharing. And with X-Reality™ for Mobile technology video quality is vastly improved, making your favorite clips and movies appear even sharper.

  • All day mobility

    Stay Secure

    Help keep your stored information safe from external software attacks or even physical theft. Get serious about secure information management and enhanced protection for your business with VAIO Pro's TPM (Trusted Platform Module). Included on the Pro red edition model, TPM stores important cryptographic information, like encryption keys. And because TPM uses its own internal firmware and logic circuits for processing instructions, it's less exposed to external software vulnerabilities.

  • Never shut down

    Become a Digital da Vinci

    Create gorgeous "paintings" on the VAIO | red edition touchscreen with pre-installed ArtRage® Studio software. Get a host of digital tools that simulate real-world art instruments — like paintbrushes, oils, watercolors, pencils and ink pens —making it simple to produce natural — looking artwork on your computer. Best of all, there's no need to spend time learning complex processes and techniques. With an easy-to-understand interface, creating art is fun and intuitive.

  • Become a digital da Vinci

    One-Touch Sharing

    Sharing content between NFC enabled wireless devices is so easy, anyone can do it. Simply touch your devices together to share and display websites from your compatible smartphone to your VAIO | red edition PC. Stream your favorite playlist to a wireless speaker instantly. Near Field Communication (NFC) makes it all possible, with more fun and less hassle.

  • Loud and clear

    Loud and Clear

    ClearAudio+ mode allows you to effortlessly enjoy audio quality that's distinctly Sony. One simple operation activates the perfect sound settings for your favorite music, blockbuster movies and the latest games. With Sony's unique sound processing technologies, turn up dynamic bass and soaring highs with less distortion for an unmatched video watching, music listening experience.

  • Wondrous Webcam

    Never Shut Down

    Whether you're done for the day or just stepping out for a latte, there's rarely a reason to power down your VAIO | red edition PC. Featuring Sony's Rapid Wake technology, simply enter into energy-saving sleep mode that helps keep data safe and secure. Battery drain is minimal, so your PC can stay asleep for days2. Ready to rouse it from slumber? Pop open the lid and get right back to business in about two seconds.

  • Quick On The Draw

    Wondrous Webcam

    The built-in HD web camera features Sony's Exmor R® CMOS sensor technology for a crisper, clearer picture — even when chatting with friends and family in dimly lit rooms. It's perfect for snapping self-portraits, video conferencing with a client or simply sharing smiles across the miles. And on the VAIO Duo 13, Snap photos and shoot video of the world around you with the rear 8MP camera powered by Sony Exmor RS® sensor.

  • Stay Secure

    Power to play. Power to create. Power to spare.

    With the new 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor (VAIO Pro and VAIO Duo models only), you have the power to play, create, entertain, or inspire. Enjoy maximized performance with amazing battery life, and built in security features to help keep your data safer.
