Message to Apple: When you're on top, you're the target. Take one look at the VAIO S Series, Sony's latest stylish laptop entry, and it's clear the electronics giant's design team had its aiming reticule set right on the 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro. Sony’s S Series packs speed and features into a slim frame, and it squeaks in under $1,000. It's stylish enough to be a lower-cost alternative to the MacBook Pro.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
