2021 VAIO SX12
Ultra-portability without compromise. Fast and durable while still offering superior connectivity and usability.
Experience next-level performance with the even more powerful 10th generation Intel® six-core processors enhanced with VAIO TruePerformance.
What is VAIO TruePerformance?
Intel CPUs, such as the Core i7 adopted by Vaio SX12, have “Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0” installed, which enhances performance at peak usage. However, the period during which maximum performance can be maintained is limited by power consumption and temperature, and the performance will degrade. “VAIO TruePerformance” is technology designed to maintain higher performance for a longer period of time by increasing CPU power limits and more efficiently eliminating heat.
The Right Connections
Disregard the need for external adapters. With a USB Type-C™ port, 3 USB ports, an HDMI port, a VGA connector and LAN connection, experience connectivity at the optimal level.

– SPECIAL EDITION MODELS –
VAIO SX12 ALL BLACK EDITION
Beautiful All Black Body. The quality you expect from VAIO expressed in uncompromising black. The ALL BLACK EDITION further enhances the sophisticated form unique to VAIO, such as its wedge shape and flat aluminum palm rest. Our commitment is devoted not only to the body, but also to details such as the packaging and accessories.
Glossy Black Logo
Traditionally the VAIO top logo is finished in silver, but on the ALL BLACK EDITION the logo is a lustrous black that shines brilliantly against the matte black body.
A hairline finish has been applied to the rear hinge creating a subtle clean texture emphasizing overall appearance.
Smooth to the Touch
The black, flat aluminum palm rest has been created with great care in collaboration with our manufacturing partners. Not only in its appearance, but you can feel a sense of quality in how it feels and how it contributes to overall rigidity of the bodyThe black, flat aluminum palm rest has been created with great care in collaboration with our manufacturing partners. Not only in its appearance, but you can feel a sense of quality in how it feels and how it contributes to overall rigidity of the body
ALL BLACK Packaging
Uncompromising even with its packaging. The product box is crafted with high-quality all black material, accentuated by the stamped black foil VAIO logo
VAIO SX12 RED EDITION
VAIO’s commitment embodied in our red. Vivid and inspiring, yet not overly flashy, the VAIO RED EDITION is based on our long history of inspired color development.
A 3-layer coat finish is applied to the top panel to achieve the ideal premium, deep red. The first layer is shiny pink metallic, followed by transparent red which creates the deep red, and finally a glossy UV coating that hardens to protect against scratches and produces a high-quality gloss sheen.
An emphasis on quality over production efficiency in pursuit of the ideal Red
“As a result of thoroughly thinking, what is a color that is high-quality that a man would not feel ashamed of having, we ended up with a red that draws you in, like the color that reminds you of a high-end sports car. In the VAIO RED EDITION, the color applied in three layers is exquisitely crafted to achieve a red that gives a sense of depth that cannot be reproduced with a conventional single-layer coating. However, since scratches and unevenness in the lower layers will show-through when a 3-layer coat is applied, all layers need to be finished without repainting and additional touch ups. As a result, this process costs several times that of a conventional model, but I am satisfied with the finish.” (VAIO Designer)
Challenging the Limits of Staining
By spending extra time during the dyeing and polishing process, the flat aluminum palm rest has the same deep red coloring as the outside cover.
No compromises during the polishing and dyeing process
“The flat aluminum palm rest is crafted using alumilite staining, but it takes time with an advance chemical polishing and dyeing process because it is very thin. By increasing the gloss through chemical polishing over a long period of time, and using a darker color, it was possible to achieve a red that has both depth and brilliance, which is comparable to the color of top cover.” (VAIO Design Engineer)
Attention to Details
Other than the top cover and palm rest, the 2-button touchpad and fingerprint sensor are also dyed red without compromising functionality.
We struggled with color matching
“There was also an option to black out parts such as the touch pad, but as a result of considering the customer who selects the RED EDITION, we decided to go with red, without compromise. The red touch pad was especially difficult. It was very difficult to match the color with the palm rest because of its structure. We had to color the back of the rough, transparent metal sheet.” (VAIO Project Lead)
Glossy Black Logo
We changed the top cover VAIO logo, which is silver on VAIO base models, to a glossy black that better compliments the red top cover for a more striking appearance
The rear hinge has been produced in black with hairline finish detail creating a distinctive two-tone design
Brilliant Red Glow
In order to enhance rigidity, the top red cover and flat aluminum palm rest wrap inside the main body. Not only does this provide structural integrity but also increases the visual appearance from any angle
Exclusive Red Packaging
The VAIO RED EDITION comes in a specially designed packaging exclusive to this model. The two-tone red and black design extends to the product box, accentuated by the stamped black foil VAIO logo
KACHI-IRO SPECIAL EDITION (** NO LONGER SOLD**)
HOW A CARBON FIBER TOP CASE THAT TURNS LIGHT INTO A VISUAL FEAST WAS CREATED
The unidirectional carbon top case used in VAIO SX12 balances beauty and durability. Using a propriety KACHI-IRO transparent paint to highlight and accentuate the carbon mesh fibers, light refracts in unique patterns beneath its glossy, lacquer-like finish.
CARBON FIBER TOP CASE STRUCTURE
Unidirectional carbon’s strength as a material greatly increases if layers of the material are overlapped at opposing angles. This creates a unique texture (see left photo) of alternately woven fibers that withstands many kinds of stresses, including twisting motions. The UV gloss finish applied the KACHI-IRO Special Edition laptop provides a scratch resistant, luxurious feel.
ELEGANT BRILLIANCE THAT LETS THE COLOR SHINE THROUGH
Kachi-iro has been used since ancient times as a decoration on armor as a good omen before battle. And since the VAIO SX12 KACHI-IRO Special Edition laptop with its golden logo is a modern business person’s tool, we believe it’s sparkling indigo dyed top case which packs the same power of good luck.
PACKAGE AND ACCESSORIES ARE ALSO KACHI-IRO COLORED.
Each laptop comes in a kachi-iro decorative box with the VAIO logo.
