With powerful looks and multimedia performance, the VAIO E Series is the latest easy-to-use notebook computer from Sony.

Compact and easy to carry, the stylish new VAIO E Series boasts many features that you’d expect to find on bigger, bulkier notebooks. Beautifully designed and brilliantly affordable, the VAIO E Series delivers all the processing power, graphics muscle and user-friendly productivity features you need to enhance your digital life.

The brand-new VAIO E Series is packed with luxurious design touches that add to its premium feel. The high-contrast VAIO Display is bordered by an extra-narrow bezel, boosting available screen size while adding to the PC’s desirable looks.

Despite the compact size of its chassis, the new E Series features a responsive, full size isolated keyboard for comfortable typing. For the first time in a VAIO notebook with such space-saving dimensions, the keyboard is enhanced further by a full-sized numeric keypad. Ergonomically laid out with evenly-pitched columns, it’s a pleasure to use – whether you’re gaming, social networking or entering lots of data at speed.

Inside every VAIO E model you’ll find the all-new 2010 Intel® Core™ processor family, partnered  with up to 4GB of high-speed DDR3 memory to make light of everyday computing tasks. And with up to 500GB of hard disc capacity on board, there’s plenty of space to store your personal media collection. Complemented by up to 512MB of video RAM, all-new ATI Mobility Radeon™ 5000 series graphics handle image editing, HD movie playback and media-rich web sites with ease.

Whether you’re editing photos or just browsing the web, you’ll enjoy a high-contrast, detail-packed picture on the generously-sized 15.5” VAIO Display. Selected models feature VAIO Display Plus with 1920x1080 resolution for a breathtaking view of Full HD video clips or images from your DSLR camera.

A thrilling home cinema experience is enhanced further by latest Dolby® Home Theater v3 for a powerful, immersive soundtrack with music, games and movies.

Despite its compact footprint, there’s no shortage of connectivity options. An HDMI output adds an extra dimension to the enjoyment of your HD media collection on a connected BRAVIA™ TV. Three side-mounted USB ports are joined by a fourth high-speed eSATA/USB port. Hook up an external SATA hard disk drive to enjoy super-fast file transfers up to 6x faster than via USB2.0. Alternatively, use the additional port as fourth USB connection if you don’t need eSATA just yet.

Despite its powerful features, the new VAIO E Series delivers a computing experience that’s even more convenient and reassuring. Just press the WEB button and you’ll be surfing within seconds, without even needing to boot up your PC. Saving time and battery power, it’s perfect for casual surfing or checking e-mails while you’re on the move. New Quick Web Access now goes even further with multiple tabbed browsing and a new ‘split window’: click a button to browse two web pages side-by-side on the wide 16:9 display.

Quick Web Access is enhanced further still with the integration of Evernote for VAIO. This easy-to-use ‘web clipping’ tool keeps track of anything that interests you while you’re browsing. Click on text, pictures or whole documents as you surf: Evernote automatically tags, sorts and saves them remotely. Then view your personal collection of indexed ‘clippings’ from any PC or even your mobile: it’s a great way to keep track of all the stuff you find on the web.

A dedicated ASSIST button gives one-touch access to VAIO Care, helping maintain, diagnose and troubleshoot your VAIO with just a few clicks.

Unique to VAIO, there’s also a choice of applications by Sony to help you enjoy your personal media collection. Launched with a touch of the front panel-mounted VAIO button, Media Gallery makes it easy to explore your music, photo and video collection. It even offers helpful choices based on your personal browsing history and preferences. New PMB (Picture Motion Browser) VAIO Edition lets you manage, edit and share video clips and photos. Every new VAIO E model comes shipped with Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium Edition for an intuitive, streamlined computing experience.

Ordering online from lets you tailor the new VAIO E Series to suit your personal needs. There’s a choice of exclusive colour finishes (glossy white and pink), plus the chance to configure up to 6GB RAM. Also available as an option, a Blu-ray Disc™ writer/reader burns the largest media collections to disc for sharing or safekeeping.
