Overview VAIO F Series delivers a Full HD 3D experience in a notebook PC. Enjoy 3D Blu-ray Discs and 3D photos or convert any HD video from 2D to 3D. The 240 fps high frame rate LCD puts a bright and crisp image on its 16-inch screen. “Noiseless design” lets you immerse yourself in the content being viewed.
Whether it's HD or 3D, multitasking or multimedia, this processor handles it all with headroom to spare. Its 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor is complemented by Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.04 which adapts to your tasks automatically for maximum performance when you need it. And with four cores available (as opposed to two), you can move between applications quickly with even more power at your fingertips.
HDMI® 3D OUTPUT Effortlessly transmit your 2D or 3D content to a compatible HDTV or 3D HDTV via the HDMI® output (cable and additional 3D glasses sold separately). This means that any Full HD content you can enjoy on your PC—videos, Blu-ray Disc or 3D movies, internet TV—can be output in crystal-clear resolution for an even more immersive experience.
NEW HD WEB CAMERA. The F Series features an HD web camera powered by an Exmor™ image sensor which allows for great low-light performance. Keep in touch with family, friends and coworkers, and enjoy a more casual conversation with face tracking technology, which allows the camera to automatically adjust focus and follow you as you move around while video chatting.
