Product Specifications

Desktop performance, laptop luxury and a wealth of extras combine to form Sony's newest full-size notebook PC, the VAIO PCG-NV170. The latest model offers a refreshing take on multi-purpose bays by including three hot-swappable modular devices and a convenient weight saver, in addition to an on-board, integrated CD-RW/DVD combo drive. The notebook's bay accepts a self-contained, rumbling subwoofer that punctuates music or enhances the DVD viewing experience. It also supports the 10-key touch pad that provides an ergonomic, full-size feel to the keyboard. The model's weight-saving storage bay holds up to three Memory Stick media cards along with a supply of business cards.
