Sony VAIO VPCCW2MGX/B Laptop with Intel Core i3 Processor


This laptop features Intel’s latest Core i3-330M processor. The Core i3 features dual cores capable of four processing threads.  It is a 64-bit processor that comes with 3 MB of L3 cache, runs at 2.13 GHz and built on a 32 nm die.  That means lower power, and less heat, which is ideal for a laptop.  It has 4 GB of DDR3 RAM (1066MHz) and can be expanded to 8 GB.  This is enough to smoothly multitask.

The display is a 14″ LCD display with a resolution of 1366 x 768.  The 16:9 aspect ratio makes it suitable for watching widescreen DVDs. This bright display is driven by the NVIDIA GeForce 310M Graphics engine.  The chip has 256MB of dedicated DDR3 video memory (up to 2267 MB with shared memory).   The GPU comes with NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology–helping extend battery life, reducing fan noise, and freeing the CPU for multitasking.

The hard drive is a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive (5400 rpm).  It’s a nice size and plenty big enough to hold your digital pictures, music, apps and more.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support. It can record up to 8.5GB of data or 4 hours of video using compatible DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL media; also supports DVD-RAM.

For networking this notebook comes with a built-in 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet LAN port (RJ-45) for all your wired Internet connections.  The wireless adapter is an integrated Atheros  802.11 b/g/n WiFi adapter for connecting to your home wireless network, or for sitting around at Starbucks and working on your screenplay. This computer does not have a modem.

You can test out that networking by using the built-in MOTION EYE® camera and microphone with face-tracking technology to Skype with family and friends around the world.

The memory card reader has one Memory Stick PRO™ (STD / Duo) media slot with MagicGate® functionality,  and  1 Secure Digital (SD memory card) media slot.  Other external ports include 1 HDMI™ output port , 1 headphone jack, 1 internal microphone, 1 microphone jack, 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 FireWire port, 1 shared USB 2.0/eSATA port, and 1 analog VGA port for connecting an external monitor (max resolution 2048×1536).

Other software includes Sony® Creativity Suite,   VAIO® Media Gallery,  VAIO® Media Plus, VAIO Care™, Norton Internet Security™ 2010 30-day trial offer, and Microsoft® Works SE 9.0 w/ 60-daytrial version of Microsoft® Office Home and Student 2007.

The laptop has a 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack which provides up to 3.5 hours of unplugged power.  The system measures 13.4″(W) x 1.5″(H) x 9.2″(D) and weighs in at 5.9 pounds.
