Built with the features and performance you need every day to stay connected and be entertained, the Sony VAIO EL2 series laptop (model VPCEL22FX/B) in black sports an extra-wide, theater inspired 15.5-inch display with a native 720p HD resolution that provides deeper blacks, brighter whites, and true-to-life color. The isolated keyboard includes an integrated number pad. And with a pleasant feeling textured touch pad that is integrated into the palmrest, your hands and fingers will be happy to compute.
It's powered by a dual-core AMD E-450 accelerated processor (APU), which combines a CPU and a graphics processing unit (GPU) on a single chip, helping to accelerate daily applications while also delivering lower power consumption. The APU can quickly offload demanding tasks and applications from your CPU to the GPU, enabling you to do more with your computer in less time.
You can connect this VAIO to a compatible HDTV via the HDMI port to display your creations to a larger audience via a single cable. It also includes Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking (802.11n), which offers ultra-fast speeds, wider range, and compatibility with 802.11b/g networks as well. And the integrated camera with face-tracking technology and microphone makes it easy to video chat with family, friends, and co-workers.
This VAIO laptop comes pre-installed with the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium and it includes Microsoft Office Starter 2010 with limited-functionality versions of Word and Excel (learn more below).
This VAIO notebook comes with three unique hardware buttons--WEB, VAIO and ASSIST--that help get you to where you want to go with a touch of a button. Quickly access the Internet, without full boot up into Windows, by simply pressing the WEB button. Troubleshoot any issues or facilitate simple do-it-yourself PC maintenance procedures by pressing the ASSIST button and launching the included VAIO Care software program. Finally, launch directly into Sony's Media Gallery software by pushing the designated VAIO button to create high-quality home movies and enjoy your music in a whole new way.
Whether you're watching an HD movie or enjoying your own video creation, this VAIO laptop allows you to play back HD content on your compatible big screen HDTV with a high level of resolution. The HDMI output delivers both your video and audio via a single HDMI cable (sold separately), providing the optimal digital connection to your HDMI-enabled HDTV so you can enjoy HD entertainment on the big screen without a myriad of extra cables and wires.
