Sony VAIO VPCF131FM/B Laptop with Intel Core i5 Processor

This laptop is powered by the Intel Core i5 480M processor.  This is a high-end dual-core processor that runs at 2.66GHz and with Turbo Mode can clock up to 2.9GHz.  This CPU comes with Hypterthreading that lets the processor handle 4 processing threads at once. This chip comes with 3MB of Level 3 cache and uses 35W of power.  It’s built using a 32nm process.  This system comes with 4GB of DDR3 memory and can be expanded to 8GB.

The display is a 16.4″ CCFL-backlit display which will use more power than LED-backlit displays.  This screen has a resolution of 1600×900.  The screen is driven by the NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics processor with 512MB of dedicated graphics memory.  The hybrid in the description means that the system will switch to the lower powered internal Intel graphics chip when the dedicated system isn’t needed.  This should result in increased battery life.

For storage you get a huge 750GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive. The optical drive is a DVD SuperMulti Drive.  Like most other Sony laptops this one comes with a Memory Stick slot and an SD card slot so make sure you can use either one of those.
