VAIO SX14
Next up, we have the notebook for the premium market. The VAIO SX14 is a lightweight machine that does not skimp out on I/O ports. The SX14 has a chassis constructed from a blend of carbon fiber and magnesium alloy (similar to the LG gram). When we say the VAIO doesn’t skimp on I/O ports, we mean it really has all the ports you could ever need. There’s a single USB-C port that supports USB 3.1 Gen 1, three full-size USB-A ports, a full sized SD Card reader, a Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, an HDMI port, and curiously, even the curious inclusion of a VGA port. One thing to note is however the lack of a thunderbolt 3 port.

The VAIO also features its TruePerformance® that maximises its overall performance. There are also some handy security features like the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner and TPM 2.0 chip whichs adds an extra hardware based layer of security. This should help keep your data secure without intervention from users.
