Sony carries the VGN-NS330D notebook computer under its Vaio series. Notebooks–or laptop computers–are light devices designed to be highly portable, yet powerful. Notebooks like the VGN-NS330D attract a wide array of users, from businessmen to students to gamers, and are more versatile than less powerful netbooks.
The VGN-NS330D uses a 2 gigahertz Intel Pentium T4200 processor. This single-core processor uses a 1 megabyte Level 2 cache to create temporary copies of small amounts of data to speed up processing. The processor uses an Intel GM45 Express chipset to communicate with the laptop’s other internal components. The VGN-NS330D includes 3 gigabytes of DDR2 SDRAM as standard, although the device can support a massive 8 gigabytes.
The VGN-NS330D has 250 gigabytes of internal storage space on a single SATA (serial advanced technology attachment) hard drive. This is a large hard drive for a notebook, as these devices often use a smaller hard drive to minimize on the overall weight of the product.
The VGN-NS330D uses integrated graphics processing, provided by a chip in its chipset. The Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 MHD extends battery life by using less power than a typical graphics processor. Intel specially designed the piece for use in laptops.
The VGN-NS330D measures 14.18 inches wide, 10.63 inches deep, and it slopes from 1.5 inches in height at the back, to 1.25 inches at the front. It weighs 6.4 pounds.
