Featuring a 15.4-inch widescreen display, the VAIO NS notebook harnesses Sony's own XBRITE-ECO LCD technology to present sharp details and vivid colors to the users.
To provide easy access to music, movies and the Internet, the NS notebook offers an integrated A/V mode with a dedicated menu, through which the users can select up to nine programs, such as a favorite web site, from one location.

To provide the users with a comfortable typing experience, the VAIO CS notebook features a uniquely configured keyboard, designed with spacing between the keys.
To add the fun touch, a specialized keyboard font is also included in the unit, with a 12-tone music analyzer that translates the music into a colorful LED light show that plays out beneath the palm rest of the PC. Powered by an optional Intel Centrino 2 processor technology, the prices of the VAIO CS model begin at about $920, while the Blue Ray Drive model begins at about $1,070.
