The Sony VAIO W Series VPCW211AX mid-range notebook that does not include any sort of optical drive (CD or DVD reader). The device is intended for portable use and for standard computer functions like using the internet, office programs, and some media capabilities; this is not mean to serve as a games system and will have trouble running most games. Part specifications include an Intel Atom Processor N450, specifically designed for longer battery life, 1GB of RAM, and a Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 for video and graphic functionality. A 250GB hard drive is included with the notebook and is meant to be filled by downloads or with CD/DVD file transfers with an external optical drive via USB connection. The notebook's battery life has an average in-use duration of 8 hours. Despite being a mini-notebook, the system has a full QWERTY keyboard and touchpad as a user interface. WiFi or wireless via Ethernet jack are the options for connectivity with this system.
