About Sony SE1

The VAIO SE1 VPCSE13FX 15.5" Notebook Computer (Jet Black) from Sony combines high processing power with compact portability into one energy-efficient notebook computer. The 15.5" widescreen display features LED backlighting, which provides more light than their traditional CCFL counterpart. LED technology is also more environmentally friendly because it doesn't use mercury or other environmental toxins and maintains low power consumption. The screen on this VAIO notebook also features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1920 x 1080 native resolution, which is the equivalent to full high definition 1080p video.

This VAIO notebook supports Intel's Wireless Display (WIDI) technology, which allows you to connect to an HDTV wirelessly. Unfortunately, you won't be able to utilize this feature out of the box since you will need to purchase a compatible TV adapter like the Netgear Push2TV accessory. If you'll rather go the wired route, you'll be able to connect to an HDTV with the VAIO notebook's HDMI port.

This system is powered by a dual-core 2.40GHz Intel Core i5-2430M processor, which can also be overclocked to 3.00GHz with Intel Turbo Boost. It is loaded with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 640GB 5400rpm hard drive, dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, an integrated webcam and microphone, a TPM security module and a memory card reader. Graphics are handled by the AMD Radeon HD 6470M GPU with 512MB of memory. This hybrid graphics card can operate in discrete mode for superior performance and switch to integrated mode for better battery life. Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) is the installed operating system.

Questions about this item: L  does it connect to internet on its own ?
Andrew R  I'm not quite sure I understand your question. This Sony VAIO notebook computer is equipped with Wi-Fi and ethernet for use on wired or wireless networks. You would still need access to a network that is already connected to the internet or you would need to obtain internet service from a local provider (if you do not have internet connectivity already).
