Hong Kong, February 5, 2008 – Sony Corporation of Hong Kong Limited today unveiled the VAIO VGX-TP2G, the
latest model for the TV Side PC series that seamlessly merges AV and PC technologies for sharing of multimedia
entertainment with family and friends.
The VGX-TP2G features an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T8100 (2.10GHz) processor
for more powerful performance, and a Blu-ray Disc Combo Drive for playing HD movies either on a PC display
or on an HD LCD TV via the VGX-TP2G’s HDMI connection.
Just 27cm in diameter, the radical round case of the VGX-TP2G fits in with almost any decor and looks great
from any angle. Its ability to work equally well with a TV such as BRAVIA LCD TV or PC display only adds
to its versatility, and once connected it opens up a new world of entertainment.
The VAIO VGX-TP2G comes with external graphics chip NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT GPU, 2GB internal memory and
massive 500GB hard disk, making it a sophisticated entertainment platform with seemingly endless capacity.
Additionally, it is equally good for bringing the Web into the living room for online chat or shopping,
email and keeping up with social networks. It is a great way for parents to share with children knowledge
from the Internet.
The VAIO VGX-TP2G incorporates built-in wireless IEEE802.11a/b/g technology, allowing users to enjoy the
maximum freedom and convenience of online applications anywhere in the home. It also offers a user-friendly
remote control with hot buttons and a matching wireless keyboard for ease-of-use. The supplied software
“VAIO Living Browser” adds convenience to users with an intuitive interface for easy navigation.
The VAIO TV Side PC series utilizes BRAVIA Sync technology to work together with compatible BRAVIA LCD TV
via the HDMI connection. With BRAVIA Sync you get easy, one-touch operation using just a single remote.
One-touch play and standby are available from the TV remote, as are many Media Center functions, Windows
Media Player controls and browser operations.
The VAIO VGX-TP2G offers a range of interfaces, including four USB 2.0 ports, HDMI Output Connector (DVI-D
compatible), Memory Stick and SD Memory Card slots (SDHC, MMC compatible) and Optical Out Connector all
ensure extensive connectivity.
The VAIO VGX-TP2G is bundled with Microsoft® Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium (English version) with
Traditional Chinese Language Pack. Multimedia functions and system management are made easy by the full
suite of software applications such as Windows® Media Centre, Image Converter 3, VAIO Living Browser 1.1,
VAIO Movie Story 1.0, VAIO Content Importer/Exporter 1.2, Adobe® Premiere® Elements 3.0 (Installer), VAIO
Edit Components 6.3 (Installer), WinDVD for VAIO 8.0, Click to DVD 2.6, VAIO MusicBox 1.0, SonicStage
Mastering Studio 2.4, and SonicStage Mastering Studio Audio Filter 2.3.
The VAIO VGX-TP2G is available from the middle of February 2008 at the suggested retail price of HK$11,980.
