VAIO E Series notebook family grows: Easy-to-use new VAIO E Series 15 and E Series 17 models

15 May 2012

  • New-look ‘wrap-around’ design
  • Get up and running in moments with Rapid Wake + Eco
  • Large multi-gesture touchpad for intuitive 'button-free' control
  • Rich powerful sound with xLOUD and Clear Phase
  • Backlit keyboard on selected models

The easy-to-use family of E Series VAIO notebook PCs from Sony expands this summer. The recently-announced VAIO E Series 14P is now joined by larger screen models of 39.5cm (15.5”) and 43.8cm (17.3”) to broaden your choice of friendly HD entertainment options.

Sporting a signature ‘wrap-around’ design with softly rounded corners, VAIO E Series is ideal for families, students and anyone who wants to enjoy fuss-free multimedia computing.

VAIO E Series 15 teams fresh, individual looks with everything you need for everyday tasks. With Intel® processors, generous storage, smooth graphics and clear, high-contrast 39.5cm (15.5”) VAIO Display, there’s all the power you need to breeze through the day.

Boasting a 43.8cm (17.3”) VAIO Display Plus Full HD on selected models, VAIO E Series 17 gives you extra screen space to enjoy movies on Blu-ray Disc™ (on selected models), edit photos or play games.

Need a break? There’s no need to shut down or hibernate. Just close the lid and VAIO E Series goes into an ultra-low power deep sleep, keeping your data safe for up to ten days1. When you’re ready to resume, simply open the lid. Rapid Wake + Eco ensures you’re up and running in moments, with all your files just as you left them.

It’s easy to navigate through documents and media files with the large, button-free touchpad. Selected models also feature a backlit keyboard for comfortable typing when the lights are dim. Video chats are clearer and crisper with the built-in HD web camera powered by ‘Exmor for PC’ that ensures sharper details, higher contrast and rich colours. Movies and games sound rich and natural, thanks to xLOUD™ and Clear Phase™ technologies that boost speaker volume levels without distortion.

VAIO even makes a handy ‘any time’ charger for your smartphone. Just plug in your phone via USB for a handy top-up - even when the computer is switched off or in sleep mode.

New VAIO E Series 15 and 17 is available in a choice of white, black or (E Series 15 only) silver colour finishes. Configure your PC to order at Sony Store Online, together with a range of coordinated accessories for your VAIO.

1 Battery life in Sleep mode varies depending on configuration and operating conditions, such as installed system memory size, remaining battery capacity and USB charging settings.
