Light up your life with new 14” VAIO C Series

Press release   •   Feb 22, 2011 08:30 GMT

With eye-grabbing looks that demand attention, the colourful new 14” VAIO® C Series from Sony makes a dramatic lifestyle statement. It’s also a fully-featured notebook PC with ample power to handle your day-to-day computing needs.

The latest VAIO C Series showcases a radical style direction by Sony that stands out from run-of-the-mill notebook PCs. A choice of fashion colours include two special orange and green ‘light emitting’ options. This audacious design scatters light along edges of the translucent PC lid and other key surfaces to create a dramatic glow effect.

Aside from ground-breaking looks, the new VAIO C Series balances portability and performance to make light of everyday tasks, from emailing to editing presentations.

The high contrast 14” real-wide VAIO Display with LED backlighting provides plenty of screen space for web browsing, photo viewing and document editing.

Night or day, the new VAIO C Series is beautifully easy to use. Backlighting on the full-pitch isolation keyboard illuminates automatically for precise, accurate typing when the lights are low. There’s also a multi-touch trackpad and an ambient light sensor that optimises screen brightness for a clear, comfortable picture in daylight or at dusk.

The integrated HD web camera powered by "Exmor" delivers a crisp, clear HD image for more realistic web chats and video calls.

With a touch of the handily-placed WEB button you’re powered up and online in seconds. Launching Internet access without a full boot-up, it’s a valuable time-saver for checking emails in a café or airport lounge. There’s also an ASSIST button that launches VAIO Care software, troubleshooting problems and keeping your VAIO in top condition.

The VAIO C Series isn’t short on computing power and storage capacity to accommodate everyday multimedia and general computing needs. The latest Intel® Core™ i5 processor is matched by up to 320GB HDD space and 4GB RAM for comfortable multitasking with Genuine Windows 7® Home Premium installed.

Connectivity options include Bluetooth®, four USB ports (one USB 3.0 and three USB 2.0) and a new HDMI out (3D supported). Just connect your 3D TV to enjoy your favourite 3D movies on the television screen.

Available as an option when you order the VAIO C Series online, hybrid graphics switch automatically between performance and battery-saving modes to suit the task in hand. Other choices when you order online from Sony include CPU and storage enhancements to power up your VAIO.

There’s a colourful family of official accessories by Sony to complement the stand-out looks of the latest 14” VAIO Series. A curvaceously sculpted Bluetooth wireless mouse and funky keyboard skins are joined by a sleek carry pouch with a colour-coordinated lining to match your notebook.

The brilliantly styled new 14” VAIO C Series of notebook PCs by Sony will be available for three weeks exclusively at John Lewis, Sony Centres and from the week commencing 21st March 2011, and from other additional retailers after this exclusivity period.
