Product Information : Sony VAIO NS Series VGN-NS30E/W

Manufacturer's product description

Although a basic laptop, the VAIO NS is full of style and features a slim profile for good looks and portability. With smooth rounded corners and edges, the VAIO NS sports a relaxed and natural form that looks good by your side. Gentle curves also keep exterior dimensions to a minimum and ensure the laptop is really easy to slip into a bag or carrying case. A defining characteristic of the VAIO NS is a warm and natural surface texture that's so different from the cold smoothness of most laptops. Designed to complement natural elements in the home, this texture is also very comfortable to hold as your fingers are in touch with individual points rather than a flat surface. With a good-size 15.4" widescreen display, the VAIO NS allows you to fully appreciate your multimedia entertainment without compromising portability. Sony X-black LCD technology ensures images are bright and sharp for truly realistic and natural-looking pictures. Intense contrast and colors bring multimedia files vividly to life on screen. An anti-reflective coating minimizes glare to allow enjoyment of movies, games and photo slideshows outside in the garden as well as from a wide variety of viewing angles.
