When a laptop is this spectacular, it needs a colour as distinctive as its performance. Its distinctive hue is the fruit borne of countless trial and error, and it shines as bright as the talent and passion of its creators, its designers, and its users. Multiple paint layers are individually applied and hand-polished, building layer upon layer of rich, lustrous colour. Finally, the durable UV coating protects VAIO | red edition with a vibrant sheen of exquisite depth and richness.
Photos, movies and webpages all look stunning on the Full HD 1920 x 1080 touchscreen LCD.
