The VAIO S notebook lineup will feature a 13- and 15-inch model with pricing starting at $899.99 and $999.99 respectively. Breaking these down a bit more specifically and we have the following;

With that, according to Sony, the VAIO S series is designed to offer the “best combination of mobility and performance and all around excellence.” What that means in terms of specs, a notebook with either a 13.3 inch or a 15.5 inch display that are powered by a third-generation Intel Core processors and NVIDIA graphics.
