Windows 8. Beautiful, Fast, Fluid.

Windows 8 has been reimagined to be all about you. Put what matters most right on your Start screen, and get instant access to your people, apps, sites, and more, so you can spend less time searching and more time doing. Windows 8 is smooth, intuitive, and designed to let you do what you want, the way you want.

Hybrid Hard Drive

This VAIO T Series Ultrabook is outfitted with a Hybrid Hard Drive system (HHD), combining a 500 GB hard disk drive (HDD) with a 24 GB MLC (Multi-Level Cell) solid state drive (SSD)–combining the best of magnetic-hard disk drives and flash memory. Using new Intel Smart Response Technology (iSRT) that teams fast SSD cache memory with the high-capacity HDD, the Hybrid Hard Drive system gives you faster access to your data and faster boot up compared to a standard hard drive.

Rapid Wake

With Sony’s own Rapid Wake technology, you never have to shut down your computer again. Whether you are done working for the day or just heading out to get some coffee, simply close the lid to put your PC into sleep mode. Then, when you’re ready to start again, resume in 2 seconds with your data safe and secure. If you are unplugged, don’t worry about draining your battery. Your PC can stay in sleep mode for days.

Easy-to-use Multi-gesture, Buttonless Touchpad

The multi-gesture touchpad is the most intuitive way to interact with your laptop. Scroll with two fingers, pinch to zoom in and out of images, swipe to flip through pages or photos, and you can even rotate an image, and much more. Use your touchpad in the same way as if you were touching the screen. And rather than clicking on a button, just click on the left or right mouse areas in order to activate those functions.

    Have a noisy fan on your Sony t13? A perfect laptop- for work, for pleasure (movies, cartoons, music). Perfect design- comfy to operate, except for windows 8, but I got used to it! It’s a pity I dropped a bottle of water on it, and the screen cracked … 🙁 It makes me feel sorry, cause in Moldova, where I am from, there are no spare screens :(((Do not drop bottles on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Btw, the price is also really good the same $620 laptop I ordered via Amazon can be bought here for $1000.
