Rectron has launched two additional Sony VAIO E Series systems to complement the existing family of VAIO E Series of “fun, easy-to-use” notebooks – the new E Series 14-inch and 17.3-inch.
“Sony is expanding the popular E Series range with these new 14" and 17.3" models to give users a wider choice and more options when it comes to choosing their next notebook,” says Werner Kuhn Peripherals, Imaging and CE Business Manager at Rectron, the local Sony distributor.
“The E Series – which is available in a range of colours to suite all lifestyles and moods – has been designed for people looking to express themselves, with a notebook that matches them, in colour and performance. Vibrant colours and powerful performance are the order of the day.”
Like their current VAIO E Series 15.5 inch counterpart, both new models are available in four vibrant colours to choose from, and are built on the latest Intel Core i5 technology, for powerful processing capability.
“In addition, the new notebooks feature the latest ATI Mobility Radeon 5000 series graphics with either 1Gb or 512Mb VRAM – capable of handling sophisticated image editing, gaming, HD movie playback, and media-rich web sites with ease,” adds Kuhn.
“Notebooks are notebooks are notebooks until you look at the E Series with its vibrant outlook, fantastic colours, and excellent performance. Wireless N LAN, Bluetooth and HDMI add to the already long list of features and makes sure that you have the latest technology available to you.”
Kuhn points out that Sony has designed the The E Series models to cater for everyday ease-of-use. For example, the “WEB” button opens up Quick Web Access, for instant surfing – without needing to boot up Windows. Quick Web Access offers multiple tabbed browsing and a “split” view for browsing two web pages side-by-side.
There is also a dedicated “ASSIST” button, giving one-touch access to VAIO Care which simplifies basic maintenance and troubleshooting tasks to keep your VAIO in good condition. The “VAIO” button is also available for Media Gallery to enable users to rapidly access their music, photo and video collection.
Three side-mounted USB ports are joined by a fourth high-speed eSATA/USB port that allows super-fast file transfers to an external drive up to 5x faster than via USB2.0.
Connection to HD TVs via a HDMI port is also available, enabling users to watch movies and other digital media on large screens.
It also incorporates a touchpad with multi-gesture functions for users working without a mouse. These functions support three major finger motions: scrolling through pages, moving backwards and forwards on web pages, and zooming in and out.
The new E Series 14 inch is designed for everyday browsing, blogging or enjoying your digital media collection.
Gorgeously styled to stand out from the crowd, the E Series 14 inch makes an unmistakable style statement. The glossy basic colours, black and white, with square gradation finishes are complemented by the glossy vivid colours, blue, pink and green with dot gradation that demand attention when you’re out and about.
A silvered VAIO logo “floats” on the notebook’s top panel, giving the depth and the richness, like a glass full of water that is about to pour off the edge. Matte Basic colours, Black and White, are also available, the relaxing colours that match to your interior.
The E Series 14 inch is equipped with 16:9 real wide VAIO display with up to 1600 x 900 resolutions and with LED backlight. It offers a colourful, high-contrast view of movies, games, and digital photos and more.
With colourful VPC-KBV4, the keyboard skin especially for the E Series 14 inch, it gives further personalisation.
Offering powerful graphics and an extra-large screen in a slim chassis, the new E Series 17.3 inch is the ultimate HD entertainment machine for all the family.
This is a fully-featured desktop replacement that offers great value for all your home computing needs. It comes with matte basic colours, black and white.
