VAIO VJS131 Disassembly

Last August, VAIO laptop brand has officially returned to Chinese market and it has launched the VAIO VJS131 and the VAIO VJS112 in Tokyo on January 24, 2018. The two lightweight laptops are powered by Intel’s eighth generation Core processor, and they have optimized heat dissipation system. Besides, the two laptops adopt unique VAIO TruePerformance technology, helping improve Intel’s eighth-generation Core processor’s TDP from 15W to 20W to greatly improve the processor’s performance. The VAIO TruePerformance is currently a unique innovative technology in the lightweight laptop market. Today, we will start the disassembly of the VAIO VJS131 to see its internal design and more importantly to figure out the optimization part of the internal design which can achieve AVAIO TruePerformance technology.
