1080p touch screen

The 13.3-inch LCD has a native resolution of 1,920x1,080 pixels and uses IPS (in-plane switching) technology for better viewing angles off to the sides, top, and bottom. It also uses some of Sony's newest mobile display technologies for better colors and video clarity.

A little lift

When you lift the screen, the back edge of it lifts the rear of the laptop, angling the keyboard down for more-comfortable typing.

Carbon fiber

To make the Pro more durable and still lightweight, Sony used carbon fiber. It looks good, but traps fingerprints easily.

Lightweight
