If you think that attractive girl you totally should have asked out back in college looks good in her online pics, just wait until you see them in full HD 1080p -- when, thanks to Sony’s newly unveiled, lightweight 15” VAIO S Series Laptop, you'll realize that, no, maybe it's best you didn't totally ask her out!
Starting at just $999, this sleek magnesium-and-aluminum beast (avail in 15” and 13” models) tucks in a high-performance second-gen Intel Core i7 processor and Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 for rapid-fire multitasking, so you can game, play music, crush the web, and do something actually productive all at once. Throw on the massive-capacity, small-sized sheet battery to be freed from the plug for up to 14 hours -- enough time for a flight from NYC to Rome, or just a lot of roaming. Then there's a performance switch that allows easily switching from battery-conserving Stamina mode to max-power Speed mode, which fortunately doesn’t require you to jump a bus over an inexplicably incomplete highway.
Get more specs on both the 15" and 13" Sony VAIO S models -- regardless of which one you choose, they'll both look good from afar, and far from bad up close.
