9 September 2008 - With the creation of the unique CS11 VAIO notebook, Sony continues to explore the space where technology and fashion intersect. The result is pure VAIO: bold colours, contours that fit the hands and please the senses, and technology that connects, entertains and beguiles.
“This is a companion, not a tool,” said Hidetoshi Takigawa, Marketing Director for VAIO Of Europe. “If you want tools, there are plenty out there. If you want something that’s special, that’s ahead of the curve, then here is where you need to be. The VAIO CS is fresh and colourful, and sheer style is going to be a big part of its appeal, but it’s clever as well as beautiful. It can become a part of your lifestyle, letting you communicate, helping you manage your digital world and have fun at the same time. You don’t just own it – you will treasure it.”
With the CS11, the styling is completely integrated. The use of harmonised colours extends throughout, from the casing to the palm rest and exposed inner surfaces. Everything is meticulously designed, from the shape of each key on the keyboard to the touch-sensitive AV controls that respond to the brush of a fingertip. The effect is a visual and tactile experience that rewards the attention.
Original VAIO software uses powerful built-in intelligence to organise your digital world creatively for maximum enjoyment. The ’12 Tone Analysis’ system in VAIO Music Box can categorise an entire music collection on the hard disk into 24 ‘moods’, giving you a soundtrack for every part of the day without you having to lift a finger. VAIO Movie Story uses even more complex methods alongside 12 Tone Analysis to produce high quality home movies with a professional look. It matches your choice of theme and soundtrack with your video clips and photos, then adds special effects, smooth cinematic transitions and perfectly synchronised music. You can add as much or as little as you like using simple, powerful editing features and your own intuition.
Video chat is a reality rather than an aspiration thanks to the MOTION EYE camera seamlessly integrated into the screen surround. You can also shoot stills at the touch of a button using an original VAIO Camera Capture utility. The software then lets you choose from a library of photo ‘frames’ to add style, impact or just a touch of fun.
The flagship VGN-CS11Z/R even has an integral Blu-ray Disc™ drive so you can enjoy the latest HD movie releases on the super-sharp, vividly coloured ‘X-black LCD’ enhanced screen.
So if you are tired of the dull side of technology, change. Explore a more colourful alternative with this most fashionable expression of the VAIO brand yet.
