Next-generation Solid State Drive technology for VAIO notebooks


Sony® VAIO® has taken PC performance to a new level by incorporating Solid State Drive (SSD) technology into its line-up of ultra-portable notebooks. Faster and more durable, SSD technology, also known as flash technology, enables a rapid boot-up and quicker access to applications. And without moving parts, SSD technology provides a more durable storage solution less prone to physical damage, such as scratches, which can occur in hard disk drives.

1 This testing was conducted in our company testing environment; customer experience will vary based on conditions such as system configuration, usage patterns, and environmental conditions. Two sets of VAIO® computers with SSDs were compared to two sets of similarly-configured VAIO computers with HDDs. The test recorded the time in seconds for five attempts to show the difference in time between launching an application and the display of the main page. The percentage represents an average percentage. 2 Viewable area measured diagonally. ©2007 Sony Electronics Inc. All rights reserved.
