Get That Fresh New Look for Spring with VAIO E Series 14P from Sony

Chic notebook PC with stylish colour accents for everyday computing

(SINGAPORE, 26 APRIL 2012) – Sony today announced the launch of the new VAIO E Series 14P, a 14-inch notebook that is designed with everyone in mind. Made for smarter and easier everyday computing, the notebook comes equipped with a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 CPU, as well as the AMD Radeon™ HD 7670M discrete GPU (VRAM: 1GB) to cope with the stresses of daily usage. With its unique design and colour variations, everyone can express their personal style this spring with the new VAIO E Series 14P.

Stylish New ‘Wrap Design’ with Colour Accents and ‘Personalisation Kit’

Whether you are at home, on campus or at the nearest café, the new VAIO E14P stands out from the crowd with its soft, discreetly reassuring ‘wrap design’. Available in five fresh colours – white, black, pink, silver or gun metallic – its sleek looks are subtly accented by the complementary coloured detailing around the notebook’s edge[1], touchpad and keyboard, with a premium diamond-cut finish VAIO logo[2] on the lid to cap it off.

In addition, the VAIO E14P comes with a ‘personalisation kit’ consisting of a matching mouse and keyboard skin, allowing for a customisable look reflecting each individual’s taste and personality.

Long Battery Life Realised by Hybrid Graphics and ‘Rapid Wake + Eco’

With battery life of up to 5.5 hours[3], the VAIO E14P keeps you up and running for longer, providing plenty of power to satisfy your requirements for both work and play.

To conserve battery life, the VAIO E14P switches on its discrete GPU for demanding tasks like games, videos and photo editing, and automatically turns it off for less intensive applications. The notebook’s endurance is further enhanced by the efficient VAIO Display and energy-efficient processors, as well as an on-board optical drive that shuts down to zero power consumption when it’s not needed.

Also, with the new ‘Rapid Wake + Eco’ feature, you’ll be ready for action in moments. This energy-saving mode puts your VAIO into an ultra-low power consuming deep sleep, keeping all your data safe for up to ten days[4]. Open the notebook’s lid and you’re up and running in seconds, with all your files just as you left them.

Enjoy Loud and Clear Sound with xLOUD, Clear Phase and Dolby Home Theatre V4

The new VAIO E14P also provides for effortlessly clear and sparkling audio quality, to match its good looks. Unique to Sony, its ‘xLOUD’ and ‘Clear Phase’ technology boosts volume levels, without distorting the sound for impressive-sounding movies and games. Alternatively, you can switch to Dolby® Home Theatre® V4 for a rich, cinema-style audio experience – no matter whether you’re using its built-in speakers, external loudspeakers or headphones.

Various Features to Enrich the Experience

Video chats are now also clearer and crisper, thanks to its built-in HD web camera powered by an ‘Exmor for PC’ sensor. Allowing your friends and family to see you in sharper detail, higher contrast and richer colours; you can now facilitate your most intimate conversations even in low light settings, where other web cameras struggle with grainy and fuzzy images.

The generously-sized multi-gesture touchpad offers a large clickable surface for intuitive, ‘button-free’ control. There’s plenty of space to navigate pages, edit photos and more with its intuitive fingertip scroll, flick, pinch/zoom and pivot movement controls.

The Gesture Control feature lets you interact with your computer using instinctive hand movements. Just hold your hand up in front of the web camera, and swipe left or right to flick through web pages or your photo gallery. Pull your hand down to pause a slideshow or your music playback, and even adjust your music volume with ‘rotating’ hand movements. Gesture Control is currently supported by Windows® Media Player, Windows® Internet Explorer® 9, Microsoft® PowerPoint®, and PowerDVD.

The new VAIO also makes for a convenient charger for your phone when there’s no AC socket in sight, charging your mobile device through its USB port even when it’s off or in sleep mode.

The VAIO E14P further enhances its usability with a comfortably-spaced, backlit isolation keyboard for easy late-night typing.

Create and Edit Your Personal Contents with the New PlayMemories Home

Organising and editing photos, home movies and even 3D content is now easier than ever, thanks to PlayMemories Home, the latest software from Sony which replaces the older Picture Motion Browser software. With PlayMemories Home, you can import pictures and videos from any camera or camcorder, and instantly relive those memorable moments. Unique new features include direct viewing from the camera or your external HDD, 3D playback, and 3D short-movie creation. And when you’re ready, you can transfer your files to a DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ or upload it to Facebook®, YouTube™ and other sites for the world to enjoy.
