Sony UK today launches the VAIO F Series computer, allowing you to handle all your entertainment and multimedia needs in one place.  The range-topping VAIO VPCF11Z1E/BI laptop will make light work of editing full high-definition video and RAW image files, whilst allowing you to watch and record Blu-ray and HD movies.

Distinguishable by its premium black finish, the VAIO F Series brings movies, games and photos to life with its spacious 16.4 inch HD screen, complete with anti-glare. Other VAIO F Series models feature a screen with full HD 1920x1080 resolution.

First class multimedia performance is assured as the VAIO F Series comes equipped with the latest line of quad-core Intel® CoreTM i7 processors (Quad Core, 8 Threads). This is complemented by a Blu-ray disc writer, plus 8GB of DDR3 main memory which will handle the most demanding video applications with ease. NVIDIA® GeForce® GT330M graphics – combined with 1GB of GDDR3 VRAM with CUDA™ parallel architecture – mean the VAIO F Series delivers detail-packed graphics and smooth HD video playback.

The processing power and graphic capabilities of the VAIO F Series make it the perfect platform for editing HD videos captured with a Sony Handycam® or RAW files taken from a Sony Alpha DSLR camera. Hooking up to an external SATA hard disk drive via the eSATA/USB combination port will allow you to enjoy file transfers that are five times faster than with a USB2.0.

The VAIO F Series is ideal for movie entertainment, coming with either a Blu-ray Disc Drive or Blu-ray Disc Combo Drive as standard. In addition, Motion Reality HD – which is unique to Sony – and video optimisers ensure users have a smooth viewing experience.

The latest Dolby® Home Theatre v3 delivers powerful surround sound with exceptional clarity, whether you’re listening to music, watching movies or playing games.

Equipped with Windows® 7 Home Premium software, the VAIO F Series is an all-rounder that will effortlessly handle your everyday computing needs. Typing is enhanced by the addition of a full-size numeric keypad which allows for quick, responsive data entry.

The VAIO F Series software includes the latest version of Picture Motion Browser (PMB) VAIO Edition, which has been optimised to deliver improved performance with the quad-core processor. This easy-to-use application makes it quicker, easier and more intuitive than ever to create your own professional home movies and transfer them to DVD or Blu-ray disc.

The new VAIO F Series has also been designed with energy efficiency in mind, with a light sensor that automatically adjusts screen illumination levels, saving power in dim light conditions. There’s also a handy ‘Display Off’ button that cuts consumption when you’re listening to music or watching Blu-ray movies on a connected television.

The new range of VAIO F Series multimedia computers is available in stores from 18th January 2010. Customers pre-ordering from Sony Centres ( can tailor their PC with a choice of HDD capacities and other options using the ‘VAIO by you’ selector on the website.
