The iconic sleek-looking notebook series is now officially available in Malaysia, kicking off with the launch of its new VAIO® S11 and S13 VAIO notebooks for business professionals who value performance, portability, and style.

Carefully assembled in Azumino, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, the new VAIO® S11 and S13 notebooks pride itself with first-rate production, advanced electronics, and devoted obsession for craftsmanship – a set of procedures called the “Azumino Finish”. The VAIO® S11 and S13 notebooks retain their iconic hexagonal design while staying slim and lightweight. They are also regularly subjected to stringent quality tests to ensure they are highly durable and reliable.
Exceptional Performance in a Sleek Package
The new VAIO® S11 and S13 notebooks are optimized with VAIO TruePerformance technology, allowing the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ CPU Processors inside the notebooks to be improved by 11% to 13%. This is due to the enhanced design and architecture of its heat sink, therefore allowing the VAIO notebooks to perform at longer periods of time thanks to its more efficient dispersal of processor heat.
With an outstanding battery lifespan of up to 8 hours for the VAIO® S13 and 11 hours for the VAIO® S11 notebooks respectively, business professionals can rest assured knowing their notebooks will be ready for them when they most need it. In the event that they need do need to recharge their notebooks, an hour’s time of charging will quickly restore about 80% of battery power.
Both VAIO® S11 and S13 notebooks are equipped with carefully crafted keyboards that don’t only reduce typing noise – they are also anti-spill. In the unlikely event of accidental drink spillage, the notebook will still endure normal operation for an adequate amount of time to allow data storage. Both VAIO® S11 and S13 notebooks also come with fingerprint scanners that make unlocking laptops easy while significantly enhancing data security.
With the lightweight carbon fibre chassis, the VAIO® S11 weighs in at only 0.85kg with its 11.6” FHD IPS display, making it the lightest of the two new notebooks. The equally light 1.07kg VAIO® S13 comes with magnesium alloy chassis and a 13.3” FHD IPS display. Both notebooks’ GPUs are powered by an Intel® UHD Graphics 620.
